While a lot of people like wine, some people are really, really into the science behind wine making, the beauty of the vineyards, and the history behind the distinct culture. If your dad is one of the latter, you’re going to want to find something special for Father’s Day – something that resonates with his love of fine wines and maybe hints at a little bit of adventure. Here are a few ideas we hope will get you started.
Wine Train Package
For an awesome weekend away, treat your Dad (and Mom, too), to one of our incredible Napa Valley Wine Train packages. The packages rage from two to four nights and include a queen sized room with a three-course gourmet dinner for two on the wine train’s incredibly relaxing three-hour ride through St. Helena and Napa.
Balloons Above the Valley
This is another incredible spring/summer package we offer, also two or four nights. This package includes a queen size room, a balloon ride for two over the valley, and a complimentary breakfast at the Napa General Store Café. Your Dad will love, with either package, the opportunity to get a unique view of the valley between jaunts out to local wineries.
Wine Club Subscriptions
Maybe traveling isn’t in the cards. That’s OK. Bring the wine to Dad with a subscription to a monthly wine club. There are tons out there, ranging from Club W to Wine of the Month Club. No matter which you choose, just make sure the regulations in your state allow for membership as some areas don’t allow for the home delivery of alcoholic beverages. Prices generally range from $39 up depending on the type of package you choose.
Does your dad have his own wine cellar or bar? If so, he’ll love some classy stemware. Williams-Sonoma has several stemware collections including cabernet glasses, tumblers, and decanters. He’ll be able to proudly display his glassware while serving his friends in style.
For a more unique approach, check out sites like Uncommon Goods, where you’ll find twisted decanters, vintages wine boxes, aerating tools, and some really cool major scale musical wine glasses.
It doesn’t matter how much you spend on Dad this Father’s Day. It’s the thoughtfulness behind the gift – something he really loves and enjoys – that counts. Think outside the box and you’re bound to find something that will appeal to your dad’s love of wine and culture.
