Why Gift Hampers Make Great Gifts

gourmet gift hampers

Simply put, hampers make the perfect gift as they cater for all types of recipients and their different tastes.

Hampers make great gifts for families, friends and business associates. Imagine the delight as your recipient opens the hamper and uncovers each delicious item one by one. Larger hampers also make great family gifts with many products to ensure suitable treats for all family members to share. Finally, hampers can be enjoyed over a prolonged period, such as the holiday season and well into the New Year.

Product Description

Chateau Dillon

Cru Bourgeois
Haut-Médoc
 

The Château was built in the early 17th century. Robert Dillon, an Irish refugee bought it in 1754. The property, then named Terrefort, was confiscated during the French Revolution… François Seignouret, a rich furniture entrepreneur from Bordeaux, bought the estate in 1829 and developed it into a genuine wine farm. He had the idea to sell the wine in the Unined-States under the name Château Dillon…Viscountess Arlot de Saint-Saud, the last private owner, sold the property to the Ministry of Agriculture in 1956. Since then, the property has been run and managed by the Lycée Agro-Viticole.

Château Dillon was constructed in late the 17th or early 18th century, on the site of a fortress that was probably medieval. It was named after the Dillon family. At the turn of the century the vineyard was in a state of decline. Today, the property has been revived by the Bordeaux-Blanquefort Lycée Viticole, and Château Dillon remains one of just five crus bourgeois in this commune, which used to have 32 in 1824. In 1963 the Lycée enlarged the property by buying most of the plots that belonged to Château Breillan and has restored this excellent cru bourgeois to its former high standard.

The wine is aged in new oak barrels, 40% renewed each year. This is a refined, elegant wine with fruity aromas.
