The Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Food & Wine Lovers
Used wine barrels have found a home in many new places, from being repurposed for whisky and coffee production, to being reclaimed for furniture and serving platters. The sustainable aspects of used barrels are undeniable and we’re always looking for inventive, creative ways to reuse them. Made in France from French oak barrel staves that helped age Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon, our professional waiter’s corkscrew includes a double-step system for opening long corks like we use at Jordan, a non-stock coated screw, and a five-level screw and knife for foil cutting. When recycled, one wine barrel can make about 300 corkscrews. $45.
We love this local Sonoma County body and skin care producer, Wine County Botanicals. Former wine industry professional Nicole Simpkins founded her company after she had twins and sought out natural remedies for her family. All of her products are 100% plant-based. While many of her items would fit perfectly into a stocking, we especially like her travel-size Spa Day gift set that includes a bubble bath, shea butter moisturizer, sugar scrub and, to really relax, a scented soy wax candle. During stressful times, sometimes all we need is a little TLC and this gift bundle fits that bill. $30.
Many people aren’t aware of Jordan’s French Champagne label, Jordan Cuvée by Champagne AR Lenoble. To pair with this delicious sparkling wine, we’ve designed the ideal stocking stuffer gift for the bubbly-lover in your circle: a handy, lightweight bouchon. Made of stainless steel, this Champagne stopper is not only utilitarian — it keeps the bubbles fresh for days — it’s also built for beauty and fits all standard-size sparkling wine bottles. $12.
While these days, you may not have wine leftover when you pop a bottle, but occasionally, the situation arises. Enter the wine bottle stopper. Handcrafted by Tim Ritter in Montana, each one of our unique wine bottle stoppers is crafted from a retired grapevine on the 1,200-acre Jordan Estate. Beautifully polished to showcase the wood, it’s big enough to make a statement, but small enough to fit snugly into any wine lover’s stocking. $45.
Founded in 1990, McEvoy Ranch is a local, organically certified olive oil producer with 550 acres in Marin County, California. To maintain a sustainable farm, they farm only 15% of their land that’s planted with a variety of vegetables and fruits. Their ODE Natural Beauty Collection, infused with 100% organic olive oil and botanicals, boasts a certification by the Leaping Bunny organization. The wonderfully scented Rosemary Face Oil definitely helps soothes the appearance of pandemic redness and puffiness, and the aromas of herbal rosemary and lavender calm the senses. Key to survival and one of the best stocking stuffer ideas we have. $47.
While life might be like a box of chocolates, pandemic life calls for chocolate + wine. This stocking stuffer idea includes the perfect indulgence for the true wine and chocolate lover: Jordan’s curated chocolate gift box. Handcrafted in the French chocolate-making tradition, these Le Belge Chocolatier truffles incorporate intense blends of ganache and sophisticated flavors to create a range of rich, creamy truffles—each selected for its pairing affinity with a variety of Jordan wines. This 8-piece box of assorted wine-friendly chocolates includes flavors like Red Velvet Cake and Caramel Ganache. $16.
For the meat lover in your life comes a deliciously fun stocking stuffer idea: craft-made charcuterie from Journeyman Meats in Healdsburg, California. We work with this family-owned and run business throughout the year to create unique charcuterie made from Jordan wines. The depth of coalesced flavor is unmistakable and makes a fantastic gift. The gift set features three of our chef’s favorite handcrafted, small-batch salumi from Journeyman Meat Co., and includes a special recipe created by Journeyman’s founder, Pete Seghesio and Jordan’s chef, Todd Knoll. $50.
Repour is small but smart stocking stuffer that helps preserve opened bottles of wine for much longer periods of time than many other preservation systems. It works by removing 100% of harmful oxygen, that can rob a wine of its freshness. It’s an ideal gift for wine lovers who don’t finish the bottle in one night. Four Repours come in one package. $10.
The ideal stocking stuffer for the accomplished entertainer: a beautiful olive oil dipping dish. The design is inspired by the terraced olive groves of Italy where the artist, Mary Judge, spends time to create and produce her designs. When filled, a series of concentric rings of lovely greens in descending tones emerges due to the depth of the oil in the dish. Pair with the Jordan Estate Olive Oil and this will be the gourmet stocking stuffer that people will remember. $24.
Oh, the adulation you’ll receive with stocking full of caviar! Spoil your loved ones with decadent Jordan Chef’s Reserve Caviar by Tsar Nicoulai, an artisan California caviar available exclusively through Jordan. Hand-crafted and farm-raised in Northern California, this white sturgeon caviar combines Tsar Nicoulai’s sustainable methods of high-quality farming and curing with a special salt blend created and applied by Jordan Executive Chef Todd Knoll. The result is a rich, elegant caviar that pairs beautifully with Jordan Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and of course, Champagne. $135 for 1-ounce jar.
