New socks. A gift card for a hardware store. T-shirt or tie. No matter how many times these presents have made an appearance on Father’s Day, it’s never too late to shake up your gift game in time for this year. A bottle of wine, while not a new idea, is always a way to make Dad smile. Plus, you can also drop a hint about you enjoying a glass or two from aforementioned bottle with him.
With that in mind, we have flipped through the pages of the recently released 2020 Halliday Wine Companion to pinpoint a selection of wines that we know will be a hit this Father’s Day. Whether your dad is a food lover, adventurous drinker, or lays claim to an exceptional cellar; the wines here will have you in contention for ‘Favourite Child’. These bottles aren’t just for dads, either, and can be gifted to a stepfather, uncle, godfather, grandfather, or any father figure in your life.
Of course, if your dad is the kind who likes to choose his own wines, you can always buy him a membership to Halliday Wine Companion. All membership options provide access to more than 130,000 tasting notes online and Halliday magazine, or you can really treat him with a Father’s Day membership that includes full digital access, a print subscription, a copy of the 2020 Halliday Wine Companion guide and three additional books by James Halliday. Go on, he deserves it.
