What Dad Wants
More great gift tips for Father's Day.

fathers_day_giftLast week (and last weekend on Fox & Friends), The Daily Sip shared its first round of Father’s Day Gift Giving Tips. Because there can never be enough Fathers’ Day gift ideas to make everyone happy (and you, like us, might still not have done your Dad’s Day shopping), here are a few more gift suggestions for the wine-loving dads in your life by “type.”


roberts_groove_glassesIn the category of new and cool, Roberts Wineware glasses have textured crosshatches below the rims that stimulate your salivary glands, making you taste more flavors in the wine. We compared them to regular glasses and really saw a difference! See them here.

Notorious D-A-D
notorietylabelThe second vintage of Notoriety Pinot Noir 2009 is sure to please any noteworthy dad. From the Santa Lucia Highlands, blended by Team Bottlenotes, this cherry-driven Pinot is our best vintage yet and is a perfect summer sipper. Find it here.

The Ultimate Companion
ultimate_wine_companionEdited by Kevin Zraly (of Windows on the World Complete Wine Course fame), this is a “complete guide to understanding wine” by some of the world’s best wine writers. Images, maps, and personal anecdotes make it entertaining for the dad who likes to read on the beach with a good glass of wine. Buy it here.

Founding Father
cakebread_logoNapa legend Jack Cakebread runs the family business, Cakebread Cellars, with two of his sons, continuing a tradition of great winemaking. Cakebread Chardonnay and the Dancing Bear Ranch Cabernet from Howell Mountain are Napa classics. Find them here.

The Avid Explorer
iwa-latelier-du-vin-wine-tasting-kit-mainEncourage your dad’s passion for wine with this smart gift. The Wine Discovery is a beautiful, cool kit with 40 wine aromas in little plastic vials, plus tasting sheets to help any wine lover learn how to identify aromas of different varietals and terroirs. See it here.
