Why is wine a good gift for Father’s Day?
Wine is the perfect gift for Father’s Day for plenty of reasons. Wine actually symbolizes prestige, uniqueness, wealth and integrity and is the perfect gift for many occasions. Needless to say, wine tastes great and it is a drink that many men like our fathers would be able to appreciate. Pair them with some cheeses and biscuits and you’re all set for a wonderful Father’s Day celebration!
What’s more, wine – especially red wine – is said to have multiple health benefits. This includes providing the body with antioxidants and even helps in lowering bad cholesterol. Of course, too much of a good thing will eventually become unhealthy too, so drinking in moderation is ideal. Getting wine as a gift also allows you to explore many different options for taste, brands and price points. This makes it so much easier to meet the needs of both the person purchasing it and the recipient!
What type of wine should I get for Father’s Day?
There are actually plenty of wine types ranging from red wine, to white wine and sparkling wines that cater to the preferences of your dad. Each kind of wine has its own distinct taste and even within each category, the taste differs too! Generally, here are the differences between the types of wine:
- Red wine: Made from dark red and black grape varieties, red wines generally have the presence of tannin that makes their taste distinctively different from white wines.
- White wine: White wines are made using grapes with lighter complexion, hence the lack of red colouration. They are lighter and fruitier than red wines, albeit with less antioxidant content.
- Sparkling wine: Unlike still red and white wines, these are carbonated versions with significant levels of carbon dioxide. These wines are usually made with a combination of red and white grapes.
Don’t know where to start looking for the best wines to get for a Father’s Day gift? We’ve gathered a list of affordable yet tasty wines for each type down below!
