I’ve always been fascinated with big bottles of wine at any event – it immediately adds that feeling of something special is going to happen – partly because the size infers lots of people, fun and joviality amongst friends and relatives.

Also, wines from magnums and even bigger formats usually show youth and vitality because the airspace to wine ratio is lower, and supposedly the wine ages slower.

So, for Christmas, whether it be at the dinner table, or as a special gift to a loved one, consider a magnum. At deVine’s, we buy magnums all year long just for this time of the year. Below is a very large list of available big formats at deVines for your consideration (availability is very limited, most we only have one or two bottles of each for sale), so shop early for the best selection.
