To surprise fathers on their day, or whenever you feel like it. There can always be a reason to celebrate them or create emotional moments to remember. Here we recommend you nine labels according to the style of your father.
They are those parents who vibrate in nature. They love activities like trekking in the mountains, camping or simply enjoying a good book with the sounds of nature in the background. Generally, they prefer healthy food. Because they are parents who are very committed to the environment, they choose wines made in a respectful way, whether organic, biodynamic or sustainable. Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon or Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc are two wines from Concha y Toro’s sustainable line that fit very well with their tastes.
They are those who like the classics, but with modernity. They tend to like fashion, which is reflected in their clothing: neat and refined garments. They are very confident in their attitude, friendly and if they like wine, they prefer those bottles influenced by tradition. A Bordeaux blend dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon such as Marques de Casa Concha Heritage with D.O Puente Alto, it is a wine with a deep concentration of flavours, framed by tannins and a long finish that will surely not disappoint this type of dad.
They are characterized by wanting to be present, like mothers, in raising their children. As they share tasks, many of them are the ones who cook at home, help the children with their homework, do the grocery shopping and, for the same reason, go through the supermarket’s wine aisles, always attentive to the latest news. They like to try new wines, less traditional varieties or made in a different way. For them, try a mineral white wine, without oak, from Block 5 of Los Boldos Vineyard, D.O. Casablanca, as Terrunyo Sauvignon Blanc, is sure to be an incredible experience.
They are constantly reading or learning new things because they love to use their brain. They are innately intelligent, carriers of great wisdom and to listen to them talk, what better way to do it around a glass of wine. These parents love wines with history…Carmín de Peumo, a Carmenère from the best area of Chile (and probably the world) for this almost extinct variety, will surely give a lot to talk about.
They are enjoyers, love gastronomy and are always trying new ingredients, products or restaurants. Therefore, for them you must look for a wine that can be brought to the table. However, since they are fathers of demanding palates, it must be a wine that surprises. Ideally one that is complex, multi-layered, with a long, crisp finish. A wine that meets these characteristics is Amelia Pinot Noir, in addition to the fact that this variety is very versatile when looking for food and wine pairings, which will entertain them even more.
They are always looking for new experiences and getting out of their comfort zone. They are not afraid of being wrong, since the mistake is the learning. Since they are almost always open to trying new things, which goes for wine if it’s to their taste, giving them wines that break away from stereotypes (for example, that men like bold red wines) can be a great idea. Surprise them with a rosé wine like Marqués de Casa Concha Rosé, made from Cinsault, or a mineral white wine like Amelia Chardonnay.
They usually walk through life smiling, looking for the opportunity to crack a joke or make whoever they can laugh. They like trivia, board games, but above all, after-dinner conversation. It is there where they can display their comedian skills, tell the latest jokes they learned, tell those that don’t fail for the umpteenth time and make the audience laugh. A wine to enjoy with them around the table, after decanting, is Gravas Cabernet Sauvignon.
