Wine & Food Pairings

With so many delicious pairing options, wine and food is a combination that never disappoints. Whether you’re hosting an event or just having a quiet night alone, a glass of wine and an accompanying snack is a fabulous way to indulge.

Whether you like reds, whites, or sparkling, Gourmet Basket has plenty of wine gift hampers to suit your style. In this post, we’ve put together four of our favourite wine and food gift baskets to spoil yourself or a loved one.

Red Wine and Chocolate

If you enjoy bold and rich flavours, then red wine and chocolate is the ideal pairing for you. The deep aroma of red wine perfectly matches the sweet decadence of fudge, dark chocolate, and other sweet treats.

At Gourmet Basket, our Chocolates and Red gift hamper offers the best of both worlds. Inside, you’ll find a bottle of D’Arenberg The Footbolt Shiraz from McLaren Vale. You’ll also get a selection of sweet treats, such as rocky road, fudge, mini melting moments, and more.

White Wine and Cheese

On the other hand, if you have a more savoury palate, a wine and cheese hamper might be the best pick for you. These gift baskets include everything you need to enjoy a drink and a nibble and are perfect for picnics, lunches, and other fun-filled occasions.

Need some inspiration? The Sauvignon Blanc Cheese Hamper is one of our top wine and cheese gifts and comes with two types of cheese, crispbread, salted pistachios, and more. There’s also a bottle of Villa Maria Private Bin Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.
