When you are shopping for the best Father's Day wine gift, it's important you consider what kind of a wine drinker dad is. Is he a collector of fine wines or someone who just likes to have a nice bottle on hand for guests. Does he enjoy a rich cabernet with his steak or a complex pinot noir he can dissect? You also should consider the amount of wine he is comfortable drinking. Does he enjoy a glass with dinner each night or does he enjoy wine on special occasions?
We put together a few of our favorite wine gifts to give you a starting point. We tried to offer a mix of price points. We also try to highlight both wine gadgets, wine subscriptions, and gift baskets. We hope you can find something on our list that will make your dad happy on this special day.
Two top-rated bottles of cabernet sauvignon each month to dad's door. The Aged Napa Cab series from the California Wine Club is one of the premier monthly wine subscriptions available. Your dad will receive wines that are perfectly aged for drinking. Each one of the bottles is aged for 8-12 years. This time in the bottle allows cabs to age into silky perfection.
You aren't going to find these wines at the local wine shop. That's what makes this such a fun club for true wine lovers.
This exclusive club also includes VIP invitations to the wineries that are featured in their shipments (assuming the wineries are allowed to receive guests).
Fine wines often sit in their bottles for years. In order to keep the wine from going bad, sulfites are added during the winemaking process. The sulfites don't affect the taste of the wine, but they can be an irritant. Some people feel that sulfites cause headaches and stomach problems.
Wine that sits also tastes better when you mix it with a lot of air before drinking. Aerating wine allows volatile chemicals to dissipate. It also activates the compounds that give wines their unique aromas. The Ullo unit has a switch that allows you to turn on the aerating feature.
The complete Ullo system includes a hand-blown decanter, filter packs, and the filter/aerating device.
The Ullo wine purifier is a unique gift for Dad's who love wine.

One of the best high-end Father's Day wine gifts for any Dad who likes a glass or two at a time. Why do I say that? With the Coravin system, Dad can pour wine without opening the bottle. That means there is no pressure to finish the bottle. You can even sample from a few different bottles each night if you want. That opens up a lot of possibilities.
Argon gas is released into the wine bottle when the wine is poured out. This keeps the remaining wine tasting as if the bottle was never opened.
