We love Dad. He has been there to pick us up when we scrape our knee or was just a phone call away when we needed him most. He is amazing and unique in his own way. This Fathers Day we thought about our different types of dads and paired their interests with a selection of Heringer wine. These wines will show your dad how much you love and appreciate everything that he does for you and more.
The Frontiersman/Handyman Dad
He is always working on a project, learning about nature, or fixing something around the house. He is a quite busy body with a love for wide open spaces and using his hands. The wine for him this Father’s day is the New Release 2014 Norton (available for sale Thursday 6/14/18). This unique, native North American wine will appeal to his adventurous side with it’s dark tannin and high acidity. The Norton drinks much like a beer with flavors of blackberry, coffee, and cinnamon. It pairs well with wild game. Add a wild game cookbook to your Frontiersman Dad gift and he will have hours of fun ahead of him.
2014 Norton will be released and available for sale and tasting on Thursday 6/14/18
The Sportsman Dad
Maybe he is crazy about just one sport, or maybe he will gladly watch anything on ESPN? The Sportsman Dad loves the excitement of competition and bold flavors. We think he will love the 2014 Malbec for its balanced flavors of blackberry, plum, and chocolate. This wine will pair well with all the food your dad loves while watching the game and the velvety finish will go down like a well executed play.
At the Grill Dad
Summer is here and your dad is already at the grill. He loves to cook meats outdoors for all his friends and family. Not only does he love to grill, he loves to eat the meat that he slaved over on the open flame. We think your grilling dad will love the 2013 Petit Verdot. This rich tannic, red wine with flavors of cherries, plum, and leather will pair well with his grilled meats and veggies. It also is a stand alone wine to add to your burger meat before grilling to make a rich delicious gourmet backyard meal.
The Sensitive Dad
He might play tough but your dad is really a softy with a big heart. He always seems to get something in his eye during romantic comedies and tells you he loves you every chance he gets. Your sensitive dad will love the 2013 Nebbiolo. This wine has a light soft body with flavors of cranberry and rhubarb pie, with and edge of leather. It has just enough edge to make your dad smile and enough heart to make him cry (in a good way).
The Playful Dad
He’s the joker, the teaser, he is always making everyone laugh. Even when you don’t think there is any humor in the situation, your dad knows how to turn your frown upside-down. This Father’s Day we think he will smile with the 2013 Insieme. This blend boasts flavors of dark berry, cherry, caramel and a hint of chocolatey tobacco. Composed of Primitivo, Barbera, and Teroldego as the 3 partners in crime, this wine will harmonize well with your dads awkward punny jokes and cheery laughter.
