They’re fun, edible, and people absolutely love giving and receiving them on all sorts of special occasions. No, not a Chia Herb Garden, but rather a beautiful gourmet gift basket filled with a mountain of goodies that’ll keep a smile on your face and make you do a happy dance until the last tasty morsel is gone.
I was fortunate enough to have been a recipient of a Ravenswood Red Wine Gift Basket from the nice peeps at GourmetGiftBaskets.com.
Rather than keeping the goodies for myself, I thought it would be more fun to give my little basket of joy to a friend in exchange for her answering a few questions for me. Besides agreeing to provide her thoughts, she paid it forward and shared the love with some of her friends as well. Here’s a little Q &A about the Ravenswood Red Wine Gift Basket with Val and company:

Bingo! The shipment only took 2 days to receive.
What was your initial opinion of the packaging?
Pleasant to the eye. The coloring and decor of the box was very nice.
How well did GourmetGiftBaskets.com pack/protect the contents of the gift basket?

A bottle of wine, smoked cheese, sausage, crackers, wine biscuits and bruschetta.
Did you like the items that were inside the gift basket?
I very much enjoyed the items. I brought it to a girl’s night at a friend’s house and it was perfect for snacking.
What was your favorite item?
Unexpectedly, it was the bruschetta, it was “rock star” to say the least!
Would you send this gift basket to someone that you know?

Wait for it, wait for it, wait for it…Stop. A perfect pour every time!
These little babies are fantastic for conducting any size wine tasting. Can I tell you how many tastings that I’ve been to where I’ve been poured practically an entire glass of wine?! Not a bad thing when I like the wine, but otherwise wasteful. The greatest beneficiaries, though, of this gadget are definitely any commercial businesses that serve wine and spirits that are interested in controlling over-pours in their establishment.
It’s simple: You just push the pourer into the neck of the bottle, tip the bottle so that the bottom is turned to a 1-2 o’clock position, and pour. The liquid flows out and stops when it’s reached the right amount based on the pourer size you’ve selected. Another excellent feature about these super accurate pourers is that they’re also great for drip and spill control. FYI, I’ve been using the 1 oz. pourers, but there are several different measurement sizes (and colors!) available.
Well, enough of my rambling and on with the show! Checkout the “Hi-Profit-Pour” in action for yourself:
