Wine – A Great Closing Gift!

Wine – also pronounced Vino (in Spain & Italy), Vinho (in Portugal), Wein (in Germany), and Vin (in France) – has become one of my favorite “extra” closing gift.  If I’m not giving a credit, I tend to give a gift or gift certificate that the new homeowners can use on a daily basis or for special occasions – and – I also like to give a bottle of wine for that special “First Dinner” in my clients new home!

I’ve always given Portuguese wines, since they are my favorite – but there are so many “Fabulouso Vinhos” to be tasted!  Gary Vaynerchuk with Wine Library TV has broadened my horizons in the “Wine World”.  His latest video post shows Gary tasting and talking of wines from South Africa, California, Spain and Portugal.

I grew up in a home where my parents had wine with dinner every night.  My dad, who came here from Portugal in the early 1950’s, would make his own wine.  I loved going down to his wine cellar and smelling the wine ferment, but I didn’t enjoy drinking wine until my late 30’s! What a shame since drinking wine does have health benefits!  Good excuse – right?
