Father’s Day Wine Gift Guide, Chosen by Wine Experts

Which one reminds you of your dad more?

1. He is a sophisticated collector, with a cellar full of vintage wine. He enjoys talking about wine flavors and nuances over a perfectly paired dinner.

2. He prefers the simpler things in life. He likes to drink a few glasses of "red wine" a night, and is happy as long as it goes down smooth while being surrounded by family.

Regardless, our wine experts have put together a beautiful lineup of wines for you to savor and appreciate on Father’s Day.

Father’s Day Wine Gifts

The only place to start is with Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most suave wines in the world. Brunello, made from 100% Sangiovese, is loved for its depth and complexity, much like your father. From the Tuscany region of Italy, it carries the country’s top wine designation, DOCG.

The sophisticated wine drinker will want to age it for decades, but they can enjoy it now, and more so when surrounded by loved ones. Given the pandemic, there is no better time to drink great wine than the present. While Brunello is wonderful with food, savoring it on its own is a unique experience.

Try the astounding two-pack of the highly rated 2015 and 2016 vintages from Sassetti Livio Pertimali or the 2016 Tenuta di Sesta Brunello di Montalcino. If you drink these now, you’ll long remember Father’s Day 2021.

Napa Valley wines are at the top of every father’s wish list, and we offer up three beauties:

  • Award-winning 2018 Martin Ray Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain – 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from an historic property.
  • Food-friendly 2016 Acre Cabernet Sauvignon – ready-to-drink classic Napa Cab.
  • Family-owned 2018 Buehler Napa Cabernet Sauvignon – rich, full-bodied Napa Cab at an affordable price.


Serve these fabulous Napa Cabs with everything from burgers to rib-eye steaks.

For dads who prefer white wine, only a Burgundy will do. The tiny production 2014 Domaine Sophie Cinier 'A la Cote' Saint-Veran delivers a beautiful fresh expression of Chardonnay. It’s sure to please the most discriminating father.

For guys who prefer cocktails, the NV Martellotto Semi-Secco Bianco Vermouth will fire up their imaginations. Bianco Vermouth is a versatile mixer that also drinks well on its own over ice.
