Show Your Love: Fathers' Day Gift Wine Selections
Wine makes an elegant statement as a gift; it also conveys appreciation. Honor Dad this Father's Day with a nice bottle - one that he wouldn't necessarily buy for himself. Shopping for a gift such as this should be fun - you may approach from a thematic perspective, such as, "Favorite Wines/Varietals," to "If Dad were a wine, he would be..." to "We share a love for this Book/Movie/Location and it's represented in this bottle."
You can also turn the tables and select a varietal that he may not have tried, thus making you the teacher and he the student! Most of all, have fun together.
