Dapper Dad

Voted best-dressed in his yearbook, Dapper Dad has nary a hair out of place. His outfits? Masterful mixes of colour, pattern, texture and shine, proving that good taste never goes out of style. He will fall for the silky and sensual Le Moderniste from Chateau de Malijay, our elegant red Chateauneuf-du-Pape that is very today. Structured yet sublime, notes of violet, peony, blackberry, and cherry are effortlessly chased by a velvety-smooth palate.

Disciplinarian Dad

You know the one. The sergeant-major we all loved to hate growing up. Strict and severe on the outside, he’ll surprise with a warmth and sensitivity that shows how much he cares. Hello, Bordeaux. Our Chateau de Pez 2011 has tons of character and an austerity that has mellowed beautifully with time. Complex aromas of leather, oriental spices, chocolate, and jam are ably supported by peppery, liquorice tannins. Delicious.

Down-to-Earth Dad

Down-to-Earth Dad loves his plaid shirts, khakis, and comfy shoes. Affable and sincere, he relates to others with ease. His ideal match? Marianne Wine Farm’s Okoma 2016 from South Africa. Fresh, fruity, and delicately spicy, this popular choice has a tender, ruby colour and wonderful aromas of red and black fruit followed by cool liquorice notes. On the palate, this wine is round and delicious. Perfect for a down-home barbecue!

Detective Dad

Ever wonder how he finds the truth no matter how hard you hide it? Disarmingly paternal, Detective Dad takes disparate clues and pieces them together like a boss. He’ll be intrigued by our Karasi 2014, an Armenian treasure he’ll want to uncover. Made from the ancient Areni grape planted 1,400 meters above the sea, the wines mature in buried clay vessels, resulting in a suave, ruby elixir of ripe cherry and tobacco on a chocolatey backbone. A gem.

Daredevil Dad

Daredevil Dad has a boundless need for speed! Inexplicable fascination with sharks? Check. Dreams of jumping out of a perfectly functioning plane? Check. Quench his thirst for action with an exotic Indian adventure. Our 2016 Sauvignon from Sula Vineyards helped put the Indian wine scene on the map. Pale gold with flashes of green, this stunning medley of citrus, exotic fruits, and lemongrass is both refreshing and bursting with flavour.
