To help with finding the right gift for the wine lover in your life, here are some great wine-related suggestions to get you started - although, a bottle of nice wine is always appreciated too!

Grands Crus Classes The Great Wines of Bordeaux by Sophie Brissaud (text) with photographs by Cyril Le Tourneur d'Ison and Iris L. Sullivan ($65) - This is a wine lover and foodie's dream book, offering a virtual trip through Bordeaux, France without the worries of going through security at the airport. Start on page one and work your way through 87 Chateaux of the Medoc and Sauternes regions. Each section has a brief one-page history of the chateau, along with three to four pictures of the property. Best of all, a recipe by 87-world renown chefs is paired with a vintage from each chateau. Sounds like an 87-week challenge to me. Anybody up for a Julie & Julia type project?
