It’s the week before Easter in Paso Robles Wine Country and hostesses all over California’s Central Coast are putting the final details on their Easter menus and choosing the right wines to serve with their holiday feast. If you’re traveling to visit loved ones or if you have been invited to dine with treasured family and friends, you’ll need to find the perfect hostess gift.
It’s always a good idea to arrive with a special token of appreciation and while flowers and candy are good choices, a hostess gift is not something that’s specifically meant to be shared, but a memorable gift that your host and hostess can enjoy long after you have said your goodbyes.
Here are our 3 favorite hostess gifts to give that best represent Paso Robles Wine Country:
Olive Oil: There are so many exceptional food products to choose from in Paso Robles, but we have our favorites. Any hostess would enjoy a bottle of good olive oil from We Olive, especially the buttery, mild Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Best of all, you can buy a special bottle or container and have it filled fresh at the shop.
Happy Acres Goat Milk Hand Cream: A quick glance of a map of California’s Central Coast reveals plenty of small family farms, but one of our favorites is located just down the road from Paso Robles in Templeton. Happy Acres Farm is home to many happy goats—who are responsible for a range of fabulous products from tangy goat cheese to the ultra-rich body lotions and creams known for leaving skin soft and delicately scented. Choose the delicate rose or lavender for a springtime scent that will make any hostess happy.
A Wine Tasting Tour: Special people deserve special gifts and one guaranteed to please your host and hostess is the gift of a Wine Wrangler Wine Tasting Tour where they can enjoy a day of wine tasting and sightseeing—a true sensory experience of the Central Coast.
The Wine Wrangler offers a number of tours, including the more social Adventure tours or a Private Wine Tasting Tour with an itinerary designed especially for your guests.
Wherever you’re planning on enjoying Easter dinner, bringing along a special gift for your hostess will show your appreciation. Choose a local gift that represents Paso Robles Wine Country and you’ll treat your hostess to the best that our area has to offer—olive oil, artisan products and wine, of course.
