What Your Dad Really Wants for Father’s Day
Shopping for relatives is never easy, and dads may just be the trickiest of them all. Although we don’t know your dad personally, we can basically guarantee that he doesn’t need another tie… so what’s a gift-giving child to do? We’ve said it before and we’ve said it again. Wine is the gift that keeps on giving—so let us take care of it for you!
For the dad that loves to golf, we’ve got our ‘Gaux Golf Kit locked and loaded, featuring 2020 Par Fore the Course New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Each kit comes equipped with a customized amount of Par Fore the Course Sauvignon Blanc (available in 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12 bottle options), two cups for the course, two tees and ball marker books, and one microfiber golf towel. Nothing says golf ready like a bag full of supplies (Sauvignon Blanc included).
About the wine: Par for the Course Sauvignon Blanc is produced from organically-farmed fruit in the heart of New Zealand’s Marlborough region. This acid-driven juice explodes with flavors of melon, guava, green herbs, passionfruit, and grass, finishing long and strong. Fair warning, this stuff goes down pretty fast!
For the dad that loves to cook, we can’t recommend our Food & Wine Pairing 101 Kit, featuring a copy of Big Macs & Burgundy. Looking to dive deeper into the world of wine pairings? You’ve come to the right place! Our Food & Wine Pairing 101 kit comes in 2, 3, and 4-bottle options, each including one copy of Vanessa Price’s new book Big Macs & Burgundy – Wine Pairings for the Real World.
This book has become one of our go-to resources for wine tasting and food pairing; it’s fun, it’s simple, and it takes all of the pretension out of pairing delicious wine with your favorite foods. From healthy staples to guilty pleasures, this book’s got your back (and we’ve got the wine to go with it!)
Argaux Tip: As much as we recommend reading, we’ve found that tasting is definitely the best way to learn. Pop a few bottles, open the pages, and sip while skimming. Find a recipe that catches your eye and get to cooking—or let’s be real, simply order in and spend more quality time hanging with dad on the couch.
For the dad that knows what he likes—or the son / daughter who knows his wine preferences better than he does—simply build your own customized gift box (scroll to the bottom of the page to check out sizing options). Choose your desired quantity of bottles and browse our ever-rotating selection of small production, family-owned, and sustainably-farmed wines.
Not sure where to start? Consult your Pocket Somm by calling or texting 949-284-4917. We’d be thrilled to help you navigate our selections and curate the best picks possible with your dad’s personal preferences in mind.
From Team Argaux to you, we wish all the dads in your family a happy, healthy, and wine-filled Father’s Day!
