How To Wrap A Wine Bottle

A bottle of quality wine can make the perfect gift for many different occasions. Weddings, birthdays, and holidays are all appropriate events for wine gifting.

However, it would cheapen the occasion to give a quality bottle in a cheap paper bag, right? That’s why we’ve crafted this helpful guide to demonstrate how to wrap a wine bottle.

How to Giftwrap a Wine Bottle

If you buy a bottle of wine under $20, you may not want to spend the extra money to have the bottle boxed or wrapped at the store. Typically, wines at this price point can be sufficiently adorned with a nice bobble around the bottleneck.

But when you purchase a bottle of wine for $50 or more, it’s always a nice gesture to go the extra mile and gift wrap it. Whether you’re a crafty person or not, taking a few extra moments to add a personal touch to your wine gift will always stand out from the crowd. Our guide below will show you how.

Needed Materials

  • A quality bottle of wine worthy of gifting
  • Wrapping paper or tissue paper for the occasion 
  • Scissors 
  • Double-sided tape 
  • Your choice of ribbon or bow 


  1. Place the wine bottle on the center of your wrapping paper leaving about 1 ½  inches of paper below the bottom of the bottle.
  2. Tape one side of the wrapping paper to the wine bottle. Affix the tape to the glass and not the label. Roll the bottle over keeping the wrapping paper tight until the other end of the paper is secured by the double-sided tape.
  3. Place a piece of tape under the bottom of the bottle and fold the remaining paper under the bottom of the bottle and secure it with the tape.
  4. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the bottle. Cut off any excess.

Wine Gift Bags

Not good with your hands? No time to wrap it yourself? Burlap wine gift bags are an inexpensive option that can still provide you with an elegant presentation with no work!

Although a wine bag doesn’t convey the same personal sentiment as a hand-wrapped chardonnay, it still looks like you cared enough to take an extra step. Wine bags can be found at any quality wine retailer or on Amazon.
