10 wine-themed gifts for Father’s Day
Father’s Day falls on June 21st this year, and it will certainly be one to remember for many reasons! Make the day even more memorable – and show the dad in your life how much you appreciate him – with a special gift that’ll go down a treat with wine pros and rookies alike.
In vino veritas cufflinks
Elegant and understated, these sterling silver cufflinks manage to be fun and whimsical without the questionable ‘wackiness’ that often accompanies novelty designs. If symmetry matters, you can request a pair of glasses or bottles instead, while the bottle shape can be stamped with up to six personalised characters.
Tattinger Champagne with historical newspaper
Give the gift of a trip down memory lane with a bottle of top shelf Tattinger and a genuine copy of The Times newspaper from your chosen date, both packaged beautifully in a black silk-lined gift box.
Georg Jensen wine carafe
This stylish wine carafe, crafted from mouth-blown glass, includes a stainless steel and silicone stopper to combine modern form with superb functionality. The design also encompasses a raised base, enabling better aeration.
Coravin Model Six
Something of a legend in the world of wine, the Coravin is arguably the go-to wine preservation system, allowing users to drink any wine, in any amount, without ever pulling the cork. We’re up to Model Six now, which also works with screw-cap wine, and comes in three smart colourways: red, silver and black. This particular set comes with two capsules, which will pour up to 30 glasses of 150ml.
Three Choirs Vineyard gift vouchers
One of England’s oldest vineyards, Three Choirs in idyllic Gloucestershire has been producing wine since 1973 and is revered for its upstanding position in the English wine industry. The vineyard offers gift vouchers in a variety of denominations, or if you’re feeling flush, you could gift a complete weekend experience, which includes luxury bed and breakfast, a winery tour and extensive tastings. All vouchers are valid for 12 months, so if your dad can’t use it this year, he’ll have something to look forward to next year.

Decorative cork display case
If you’re father goes through a lot of wine, chances are most of the corks end up in the recycling bin. Instead, why not help him showcase his passion with this rustic wooden display box? Crafted by Danish designers, the case can be placed on a shelf or dresser, or attached to a wall, to give any room a vinous vibe.

What pairs more wonderfully with wine than a good cheese? This well-presented hamper includes a fine goat’s cheese, Worcester Hop, Cornish Yarg, Brie and Stilton, although you can also build your own gift selection if your dad has particular favourites.
Hand-blown aerating wine tumblers
These unique wine tumblers are designed to look good and treat your wine well. The hand-blown curvature makes for a comfortable grip on the glass, while ensuring your wine is aerated perfectly as it’s poured. These set contains four tumblers, presented in a smart gift box.
