There's a whole range of interesting and engaging gifts available for wine lovers.
Some are unavoidable classics – corkscrews and wine pourers are always welcome. If you know someone who fancies a spot of Camembert with their Cabernet Sauvignon then a cheese and wine serving set with a knife could be the perfect gift.
Others can be a little more quirky, such as the plastic, googly-eyed aliens that cling to your glass and help you to identify it in a crowded room.
Buying the wine may be straightforward, where to keep it can be a problem. Mensa, the ultimate book club wine is taking storytelling to the next level through digital innovation and has come up with a novel gift pack for this festive season that doubles up as a nifty ice bucket.
The gift pack literally unfolds into a cooler making it ideal as a fun stocking filler or as a centerpiece for sharing at the Christmas table. All you need to do is add the ice.
A sister range to the popular Balance and Survivor wines, Mensa is the first South African wine supported by an augmented reality app for Android and iOS. When scanned using the Mensa Wine App on your smartphone, the Mensa label comes to life as a book to reveal her full story.
