Wine & Wine Baskets from Harry & David

harry david red wine bottleNestled in the foothills of Medford, Oregon it only seems fitting that Harry & David expand their orchards to produce wine grapes. And so they did, launching 9 wines in November 2012. Today their line-up includes 7 reds and 5 whites, using grapes grown and crushed on their property. They’ve enlisted winemaker Linda Donovan, to oversee and create their collection. The result? A full line-up of great wine from a great company.

For your convenience, Harry & David have created gift wine baskets that include one of their craft wines. There are a number of Kosher gift baskets available for Hanukkah or other Jewish holidays as well.

Specifically paired to complement the gourmet food they offer, Harry & David have taken the guess work out of the question “what wine goes with what?” for you.

For example, check out their Dessert Wine and Truffles Gift basket. What a fun way to end a meal? Pairing delicious handmade truffles from their candy kitchen with their Beeson wine (a Tempranillo varietal), is a flavor marriage from heaven. (Adding wine to one of their fruit of the month clubs is a decadent gourmet gift idea!)

Harry & David Wine & Cheese or Wine Clubs

Why not add a little class to your Harry & David gift by selecting one of their bottles to go with it? Most of their gift baskets can be upgraded by selecting a bottle of suggested wine. At their modest price, this addition is sure to be a hit. Simply click the “wine” button on your basket of choice and a list of perfectly pair-able wines appears for your choosing.

But in case you’re still not sure which wine would be best, here’s a little wine education summarized from foodandwine.com. Study the pairings and impress even the snootiest wine connoisseur.

  1. Unoaked White (like Sauvignon Blanc, Albarino & Vermentino) generally pairs well with most fish from the flakiest white to the oiliest red.
  2. Try Reislings with ethinic spicy foods. Their dry sweetness won’t add extra heat and may off-set the spices.
  3. Got beef? There’s nothing like a deep Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Pinot Noir (especially for your bison) A bottle of red sounds great right now with some Moose Munch popcorn. Mmmm…
  4. Match your drink with the sauce. If you’re making a white wine sauce to go with the chicken or turkey, the wine should also be a similar white. Likewise if making a zesty red wine sauce with pork, choose a light red.

In my opinion, one could say wine is slightly like art. Great taste is in the mouth of the drinker. Personally, blends have caught my taste buds recently. Worth noting are Harry & David’s Ross Lane Red Blend (best to begin a meal paired with pates and baked brie) and their Royal Crest Red (beautifully paired with red meats, oranges, and cheese). I’ll leave you with one my favorite wine quotes:

“I cook with wine. And I sometimes even add it to the food.” – Ha, ha. True.

Harry & David: Halloween Gift Ideas & Coupons

logo harry david squareHarry and David Halloween Sale: So, after over 30 years of exposure to Halloween marketing, I’ve developed an almost irresistible urge to join the rest of society in using the word “spooktacular” this October.

There has to be another alternative, like “zombie-licious” or “skull-tastic” that I can use? No? Anyway, there are some really fun gifts for Halloween and Autumn at Harry and David, and you can use one of our featured coupons for up to an extra 10% discount or free shipping.

Send Halloween Cupcakes, Cookies, or Cakepops

Now that I think of it, you have to tread lightly around the whole “zombie” thing when you are selling gourmet food, I guess. Even though zombies are trendy, thoughts of the “un-dead” probably don’t make your mouth water? (By the way, did you know that the origin of Halloween dates back over 2000 years? Let’s just say cake pops are a relatively new addition.) Anyway, just a few highlights of fun things to get from harryanddavid.com in October:

Halloween Gift Ideas from Harry & David

Crooked House tower: The classic and less expensive version is the most popular, but they also have a “deluxe” version that comes with pears. You can even personalize it with a name! (see above)

Halloween Pear Gift Box: This is your standard box of 6 pears in Halloween packaging. This is good when you want to send something to another business, or friend who doesn’t appreciate skeletons and witches (see left)

Pumpkin cheesecake: Mmmm… goes great with coffee on a chilly Autumn night. They also have a Halloween cheescake with a chocolate spider web on top.

My Phantom Manor Gingerbread House – Cool (ghoul?) gingerbread house in the shape of an old haunted house. (see above)

Chocolate-dipped caramel apples: 4 different tasty apples dipped in gourmet caramel and chocolate; some with nuts. These are a little pricey, so not recommended for everyone.

I Highly Recommend Cake Pops on Halloween; The Kids Just Love Them

Can you still give away baked goods on Halloween? Actually, I guess not, except to friends and family, or you might be suspected of being a weird Halloween serial killer, or something.

Note that I wouldn’t recommend some of their gifts, like the “Halloween Krispy Pops;” 3 frosted pops with a gooey center that cost almost $20! Also, if you are buying apples for yourself, consider getting Honey Crisp apples at your grocery store instead. You’ll save a few bones! (Woo-hoo, ha, ha!)

Bonsai Trees & Plants: Gift Ideas from Harry & David

logo harry david square3 Unique Trees from Harry & David to Give as Gifts: Close family members can be the hardest ones to get creative gifts for. After all, you’re probably giving them something nice a couple of times a year for the holidays and their birthday. You’re first thought might be to send them flowers, royal riviera pearscheesecake, or wine, but after a while you might start looking for something different.

In that spirit, we’ve found a few really neat trees from Harry & David that will stay with them for a long time.

Bonsai Trees, Christmas Trees, & Wreaths from Harry & David

bonsai wine tree harry david

miyagi bonsai treeWine Grape Bonsai Tree: I was really into the idea of bonsai trees as a kid. This was the mid-80’s, so maybe Mr. Miyagi was my inspiration. In any event, a number of my friends who were kids back then are now in the stage of their lives where they are really into wine. (And finally capable of taking care of other living things)

So, instead of bringing a fancy bottle of wine to their house, why not consider giving them something really special in that spirit: a wine grape bonsai tree that produces wine quality grapes in the summer! Grown out at the wine grape-friendly climate of Harry & David headquarters in Southern Oregon, this little tree would look great in a bright spot in any home.

You don’t have to be a master gardener to take care of it, but it’s probably more appropriate for someone who has a track record of watering their house plants, or even a green thumb outdoors.

Tree & Plant Gift Ideas from Harry & David

blood orange tree harry david

Blood Orange Patio Tree: These little patio trees are about 2 feet tall, and produce miniature blood oranges. These special fruits are named for their dark, red flesh, and are sweet and tangy, with a bit of a raspberry flavor. They can actually be eaten right off the branch, or added to a fruit salad.

While most people might find a sunny spot inside to put them, this miniature blood orange tree would be great in a sun room or on the right patio. Did you know that cool nights when the temperature drops are the reason for the blood orange’s unique color? The color comes from a pigment called  “anthocyanin,” which also makes these oranges rich in antioxidants.

Another Bonsai Tree Gift Idea

california redwood bonsai tree

California Redwood Bonsai Tree – A redwood bonsai tree? Talk about an oxymoron, right? Kind of like “jumbo shrimp,” or “original copy” this is a mini version of the world’s tallest trees. Well, you certainly can’t fit one of the actual redwood trees into your living room. You might have high ceilings, but probably not the 350 feet that these trees grow to.

Like children in the Philadelphia school system, these guys don’t have much more potential for growth than what you see already. This makes them a great addition to a table or windowsill. The best part is that 10% of the sale price will go to the Redwood Forest Foundation.

Harry & David Flowers & Wine on Valentine’s Day

If you want to kill two birds with one stone (what a terrible expression!) consider adding flowers or wine to your Harry and David Valentine’s order, (they have Kosher wine too!) as it usually doesn’t significantly increase the shipping cost. (Always check for a free shipping coupon here before placing an order!) My favorite is the mini rose garden, or their gingerbread love trailer, which is pretty funny. You can also consider a beautiful flowering gardenia plant in a rustic flowerpot.
