Editor's Choice: Drink Me Tags

There’s a great wine shop just down the street from my house, so wine and champagne have recently become my go-to hostess gifts. The other day, I got an e-mail for the Drink Me Tags gift tags and discovered this company had created a product I never knew I wanted.

The idea is genius, really. Drink Me Tags aren’t as pricy as a reusable wine bag or as wasteful as a wine-bottle gift bag. The cards, which hang around the bottle’s neck by ribbon, are designed by Val and Sara Rossi, a mother-daughter design team. The tags are designed with sayings like “It’s 5 p.m. Somewhere,” “Grape Therapy,” “Conserve Water,” “Put a Cork In It” and “Drink me.” The gift tags are attached to a loop of ribbon with a metal brad, so that they hang cleanly on the shoulders of any wine bottle. The website allows customers to individually pick their favorite tags to order.

What an ideal add-on at the cash wrap! And with nothing like it available in my neighborhood, the tag is truly unique. The complete line of Drink Me Tags can be viewed online at Also, for vineyards, wine stores, wedding and corporate gifts, Drink Me Tags will personalize tags with logos and business names.
