6 Wine Gift Ideas for Father's Day (Complete with Terrible Wine Puns)

Are you looking for the perfect wine gift for Father's day?

Is Papa prone to a few Dad jokes?

Here are 6 wine recommendations paired with some terrible wine puns that will make your Father’s Day gift extra special this year.

Because remember, wine puns are never in pour taste!

1. Italian Red: When We Dance Chianti, 2022

This wine-derful bottle was produced on Sting’s fully organic and biodynamic vineyard. A traditional yet clean style of Chianti that has all the wonderful red berries mixed with a slight balsamic finish. Beautifully balanced and fresh, this red Chianti be beat!

2. Bordeaux Red: L’Ecuyer de Couronneau Bordeaux Supérieur, 2022

If Dad only drinks traditional French, then this is the one for him. This medium-bodied Bordeaux is full of blackberry, plum and juicy liquorice that will have him wishing he played the Claret-net!

3. White: Bon Vallon Chardonnay De Wetshof Estate, 2022

Looking for a classic style of wine that’s a little bit different, kind of like your Dad? Then this unoaked Chardonnay is for you! A Chablis-esque white with a brisk and clean freshness that leads to classic flavours of citrus, wild flowers, subtle stone fruit and grilled nuts. An absolute corker from South Africa, it has an impressive zingy minerality on the finish that will have you singing Chardonn-yay!

4. Welsh Sparkling (e.g. Velfrey Sparkling Brut, NV, Parva Farm Vineyard ‘Dathliad’ Sparkling Rosé, 2018)

These Champagne-method wines are absolutely de-vine and make for excellent gifts for special occasions. Unique and bubbly, just like Dad, they’re well worth the investment, particularly if you’ve been a Champagne in his arse recently!

5. Port: Fonseca Terra Prima Organic Reserve & gift box

Is Dad more of a Port man than a wine man? This rich, chocolatey tipple will definitely hit the spot. Blackcurrant, dark cherry and dates mingle with hints of liquorice and spice. It’s so good, he’ll end up port-ing himself another glass!

6. Welsh Pinot Noir: Y Gwyllgi, 2023 - The Dell Vineyard

If Dad really is wine in a million, then this limited release Welsh Pinot Noir is the way to go. Only 250 bottles were made and the label depicts a wild dog that may or may not look like Dad before his morning shave! Light in colour but not in flavour or character, this is a bright and delicately spiced red with lots of red berries, cherry and a hint of vanilla. You’ll be sipping your hat to the winemakers after just one sip!
