Boss’s Day is a day for employees to show gratitude to their bosses for the kindness they show them throughout the year. It is celebrated on October 17 this year and is helpful in strengthening the relationship between employees and management.


Tokens of Gratitude

During the celebration of Boss’s Day, employees show their appreciation to their managers and supervisors by giving them simple gifts or tokens of appreciation. These gifts could range from flowers to perfume or cologne to pens.

Wine, too, can make an excellent gift. Employees can find a wide variety of simple to high-end wines from many sources such as grocery stores, liquor stores, specialty beverage stores, and online wine retailers. Online wine retailers are becoming good sources for many wine aficionados but checking the displays in a brick-and-mortar store gives customers the advantage of being able to closely examine the bottles and pair them with a personalized wine accessory.

Wine accessories for the boss may include bottle openers, stoppers, wine glasses, wine labels, wine racks, wine coolers, or a gift basket full of wines, cheeses, and chocolates.

Wines for the Boss

Consider these wines that are sure to be a hit for the boss:

  • Barbaresco – This is a great Italian wine made from Nebbiolo grapes. It is produced in the Langhe area of the Piedmont region. Barbaresco wines are aged from two to four years to be considered a riserva (a term given to wines of higher quality). It has a12.5% alcohol level. The well-made Barbarescos are supposed to be aged from five to ten years after vintage. The flavor suggests bouquets of roses or violets with notes of cherry, fennel, licorice, and truffles. The Barbaresco wines develop more earthy and smoky notes as they age.
  • Bandol – This great red wine of Provence is a good winter wine. This wine goes well with roast or a hearty chili or stew on a cold evening.

It’s the Thought

Whether you splurge or spend modestly for Boss’s Day, your boss will appreciate knowing that you put forethought into your gift and chose something meaningful to express your thanks.
