Happy Friday Divas! I know many of you are doing last minute shopping for the holidays, so I won't hold you long...don't I sound like a minister in church right before he delivers a long sermon?! But seriously, I wanted to quickly share with you all my idea for Day 12 of our Divas' Holiday Wish List series. What do you Divas think about an "introduction to wine" book and a 12-month subscription to a wine club?! Fancy, huh?! This gift idea was inspired by a colleague of mine who was recently at a networking event where the topic of conversation was wine. She told me that she felt out of sorts because she wasn't a wine aficionado. The next day, she went to Barnes & Noble to pick up a few introduction to wine books, and she bought a subscription to a monthly wine club. I love this idea for two reasons. For one, wine is awesome! And second, it is a great way to educate yourself on a topic that often comes up when chit-chatting at networking events. Also, it can never hurt to be one of the people at the table during a business dinner who can pick out a good bottle of wine. To get you started, here are a few introduction to wine books that you may want to check out:
|A Brief Introduction to Wine by Holly Simon - $18.75|
|Wine and Wine Tasting: An Introduction by Tony Houseworth - $8.99|
|Wine 101 by David Locicero - $3.95 (E-Book)|
As to the second part of this gift idea, check out this article from Forbes.com: "A Guide to Joining the Best Wine Clubs." There is some good information in this article regarding different wine club options.
Okay, I'm done! Told you I would be quick! What do you Divas think of this idea?
