Nov 25, 2021



The holidays are right around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about gifts for your wine-loving friends. If you or someone you know is planning an upcoming trip to a wine region, check out Argaux. The all-women-operated and -owned online wine shop and educational platform offers a series of tasting sets to celebrate and introduce some of the best wine destinations. The Gaux-To Tasting Sets are perfect for travelers to experience the wine before they travel — or without having to travel.


Gaux-To California ($100–175): A Taste of California

No need to hop on a plane to enjoy the taste of the lush vineyards in California. In this wine kit, travelers will get a Santa Barbara County Chardonnay wine. The fresh and tropical wine offers aromas of banana, bubble gum and royal riviera pear. The silky-smooth palate is slightly mineral with fresh apple and red peach sherbet and is perfect for all occasions. If you are looking for a red, you will also receive the Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is the first vintage of No. 9 Napa Cabernet. Upon opening, you will smell aromas of warm blackcurrant, smashed blackberry and cedar. Once you take a sip, you will taste notes of bay leaf, leather, graphite and wild violets.


‘Gaux to Champagne ($150-$200): A Taste of Champagne

Celebrate the little things in life with a pop of Champagne. This is the perfect wine for year-round sipping, festivities and more. In this kit, you will receive a Brut Nature Ground Cru Champagne. This Dual-Vintage, Single Village Brut Nature is created without added sugar. The sun-soaked chalk soils and hillsides, surrounded by forests and cool evening winds, provide natural thermal regulation for perfect growing conditions. The Champagne provides freshness, citrus notes, white peach and orange peel. You will also get a Brut Tradition Grand Cru Champagne. Elevate your dinner party, weeknight happy hour and more with this 60 percent Pinot Noir and 40 percent Chardonnay bottle of Champagne. Enjoy flavors of apple fritter, brioche, fresh green apple skin and lemon. Lastly, you will get a Brut Rose Grand Cru. Treat yourself to its raspberry-hued robe and strawberry and blackberry bouquet. With aromas of red berries, baked red apples and rose petals, as well as a juicy taste of baking spicy red fruit and a creamy, persistent mousse.

Busan Boasts a Stylish Mix of Neighborhoods to Explore

Based on their respective locations and divergent personalities, it’s inevitable there will be New York vs. Los Angeles (or San Francisco) comparisons when discussing the South Korean cities of Seoul and Busan. While Seoul is known as the nation’s business and government hub, Busan is defined by its coastline, beaches, cliffs, mountains and a slower — but by no means sleepy — pace. The city’s public hot springs, historic temples, ornate parklands, regional South Korean flavors and spins on global trends (like craft beer) also distinguish it from its Western counterparts.
