Father's Day Wine: Old-fashioned Dad reading to his daughter

Old-fashioned Dad

This kind of dad cannot seem to understand technology whatsoever and before he reads a text he has to get his glasses. But no matter what you love him.

The perfect wine for this dad is from the classic Bordeaux region in France. This is an old world wine region and just like your dad, they like to stick to tradition. Reach for a timeless Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc) to match your dad’s traditional personality.

Overly Proud Dad

This is the dad that would celebrate when you almost hit the ball in little league baseball. They’re your biggest fan – no matter how big or how small the accomplishment is.

The best wine to go with an overly proud dad is a Champagne or sparkling wine. The bubbles from the wine will match perfectly with your dad’s bubbly excitement.

Don’t want just plain champagne? Add a little orange juice!

Big-into-Sports Dad

This is the kind of dad who has a subscription to ESPN. You may also catch him rewatching some of his football highlights from high school. But he won’t admit to it. 

The perfect wine for this dad depends on his favorite sport: If he is big into football try out a Syrah/Shiraz or a Malbec! They go great with burger sliders or roasted meats. 

Maybe he is more of a basketball kind of guy! In that case, go with a Red Rhône Blend. This blend goes great with pulled pork sandwiches! 

If he really likes baseball, a crisp white wine would be perfect. Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris are great summer wines. They also go great with outdoor tailgates since it pairs great with brats and hotdogs

Want something a little sweeter? Try out a Moscato!

Adventurous Dad

This is the kind of dad who can’t wait to retire so he can buy a RV and travel around the United States in it. (We may be speaking from personal experience.)

The best Father’s Day wine for this dad is something that is just as adventurous as he is. For this dad try a glass of Refosco! This is probably a wine you’ve never heard of or tasted, but that is part of the adventure.
