I’d find out what kind, in my opinion there is no universally liked wine. Sorry πŸ™

If you can maybe let us know if she has white, red, or rose preferences…

@ShutterbugCait:  Could you get her a wine store gift card? At least in PA we have stores just for wine and spirits.

If you find out of she likes reds or whites then I could help you out. Otherwise go for champagne!

Well, does she like white or red?  A popular white is Chardonnay and a popular red is Merlot.  Both are mild and palatable and most wine drinkers like both. 

Especially me.  Yum.  Heading for the wine bottle right now, as a matter of fact.

Edit:  Get one of each, can’t go wrong, haha!

Maybe a wine bottle opener set or a pretty wine bottle topper?

My go to safe wines for people I’m not sure about are chardonnay or sparkling wine (champagne/prosecco). I’d get something neutral and not to sweet. And unless you know she likes red wine, I’d steer away from that – a lot of people don’t like red wine (that’s ok, more for me!).

I would go with champagne/sparkling.  Not that EVERYBODY likes sparkling but most people don’t mind having a glass on a spacial occasion so it’s as safe as you can get without knowing exactly what she prefers.   If she likes red, there is also sparkling red which I have grown fond of.  Perfect for summer. Stay away from traditional lambrusco though, it’s like drinking grape syrup with some bubbles.  Try LINI Labrusca Rosso, Correggio N/V instead.  Nummmmmers.  Well, crap, now I want a glass.

I’d go for sparkling. 

Im a wine lover and I don’t like Chardonnay, for example. but I think basically everyone likes some champagne πŸ™‚

You should also tell us the price range (per bottle) that you’d like to spend when you let us know if your sister is a red/white/rose/sparkling drinker.

There are some very nice wines in many price ranges, but if you want a label (brand) recommendation (I appreciate one when i’m trying a new type!) then knowing if you’re in the $12 range or the $45+ range is important! πŸ˜‰

If I don’t know a type I usually go for a fun name or pretty bottle. It’s surprising what some wines are named πŸ™‚

IE.: A friend boat a boat and had a boat warming party πŸ™‚ so I bought River Boat Red Wine and Flip Flop Something or other.

@cora_123:  That’s a lot of boats.  BAH!  But you bring up a good point.  There is Bitch, Cupcake, Angry Housewife and the list goes on….that’s not a bad idea for a gift basket, actually.

I have to disagree on the champagne.  I know plenty of people who really don’t care for it at all.

Wine is such a personal thing it’d be hard to choose without knowing much about her.

Neither of my parents drink white wine.  So personally I’ve always chosen a red over a white if I don’t know them.

Rose is a good bet but a lot of wine drinkers are anti rose (unfairly so I think)
