5 Gifts for Your Wine Loving Dad

Posted: 06/15/11 04:15 PM ET

Father's Day is almost here. If you're like me you've procrastinated, mainly because Dads can be hard to buy for. But if your father loves wine, here are five gift ideas he's sure to enjoy.

Wine aerator

Wine Aerator - Does Dad like red wine? There are many aerator devices on the market now. They quickly get more air into the wine to help soften tannins or bring out more of the aromas and flavors. The best I've found is the Soirée (pictured), which is a glass bulb that you fit on top of the wine bottle. It's a one-handed operation and gives the wine a good little workout as it decants directly into your glass.

Gift cards - Does Dad prefer to buy his own wine? Head to, a traditional wine retailer. Bottlenotes not only offer wine for sale, but has user generated tasting notes to help guide a purchase.

For Dads with a Kindle, an gift card can help him purchase Secrets of the Sommeliers or Gary Vaynerchuck's 101 Wines, among other wine titles.

If nothing else, bring Dad a great bottle of wine from your home wine cellar (or closet) that you've been waiting to open on a special occasion. Your Dad will agree that his day is one of those times. Happy Father's Day.
