Ideas for Father’s Day, June 15

Father's Day Idea: AprèsVin single varietal grape seed oil

Father’s Day Idea: AprèsVin single varietal grape seed oil

Father’s Day is June 15, which is rapidly approaching. If your Dad enjoys wine, one of the following ideas or gifts may be a great way to show him how much you care. I’ve divided the suggestions between activities and wine related gifts. Since we are such a global community, many adult children do not live nearby and sending a gift plus a phone call may be the best way to remember your father.


Numerous wineries offer special events to celebrate Father’s . Check with the wineries in your location to see what they have to offer. Or just do an Internet search to look for wineries with special Father’s Day events.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

For the Dad who like to barbecue or cook: Grape seed oils from AprèsVin in Washington State

  • AprèsVin  is a boutique manufacturer of varietal grape seed oils.
  • Chardonnay Vine Smoked Sea Salt (coarse) also available from AprèsVin

For the Dad who wants to learn more about wine:

  • Aroma kits from Le Nez du Vin
  • A Wine Journey
  • A Wine Tourist’s Guide: Visiting Tasting Rooms:  This is a handy guide for a father who is interested in visiting wineries.
  • Georgian, Sakartvelo: the Birthplace of Wine: Does your Dad know that wine was made in the country of Georgia 8,000 years ago
    All three of the books mentioned above are available online.

For the Dad who likes art:

  • By visiting tasting rooms, you can discover some marvelous artwork. Depending upon the winery you visit, you may find local artists’ work decorating the walls but also available for sale.
  • Some wineries have created artwork and furniture from oak barrel staves and the barrelhead.

For the Dad who knows what type of wine he likes most

  • Buy a bottle of wine or have it shipped directly to him from the winery. Most states now allow the shipping of wine; just tell the winery where to ship the wine. The winery will know right away if they can ship it.

For the Dad just beginning his wine journey:

  • A wine notebook: these can be purchased or handmade
  • A set of Riedel wine glasses
  • Corkscrews
  • Bottle stoppers

For the Dad who likes Caymus wines:

For Dad’s with hobbies: Fill a gift basket including a bottle of wine and corkscrew. Add a variety of items related to Dad’s hobby

  •  For the gardener: Add hand tools, a gardening book, a coupon for a plant from a nursery
  • For the golfer: Add a golfing towel, golf balls and golf tees
  • For the fisherman: fish hooks, lures, a thermos
  • For the professional sports watcher: Add a t-shirt of his favorite team, a team hat, a ticket to a game

Cheers! Kathy
