Wines to toast and share with the family for Father's Day
And the long-awaited day in 2022 has come! It is a great occasion to honor the person who has always been the family's emotional rock and is also our winning hero. He is also the one who, by his example, forges us. A father's energy for his children is limitless. That is why we would like to commemorate this day as much as we can!
If we're seeking a unique present for this Father's Day 2022, nothing beats toasting with a nice wine that also serves as a gourmet treat.
And even better if our father is a wine lover. When you enjoy a bottle of good wine with your family, it nearly always results in a moment of complete kinship. Normally, the theme of wine becomes a bond of union and communication between parents and children.
Swapping bottles, recommending labels, tasting together, or seeing who discovers a "hidden gem" can become a family tradition not only celebrated on Father’s Day.
What wines to give on Father's Day?
Every year we try to put together a special gift for fathers, and we have several red and white wines to fit the bill. If you're looking for a wine that pays homage to an Italian winery, consider Sauvignon Blanc, as it's made in a region that tends to produce safe, unpretentious white wines with strong citrus notes.
If you're looking for a red wine for a special gift, there's no better match than one from the Niagara region, which boasts some of Canada's best wines.
White wines for Father's Day 2022
To start with a delicate and flavorful white wine, try the Louis Latour 2003 Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru. This wine has wonderful characteristics. Let’s break them down.
- Light blue/narrow starry white
- Very elegant nose with subtle aromas of molasses
- Classic red fruits, caramelized fruits, strawberries
- Tasty, dry and elegant finish.
Like reds, whites are described as "long-finish" compared to reds. In other words, they offer a very nice drink. Many of Burgundy's white wines are also described as having a "woody" or "tannic" finish. This one is no exception to this rule.
It possesses medium weight and medium length, with typical notes of red fruits, but with more concentration of red fruits and less sweetness than most red wines. The finish is fine and very elegant.
Try this fine Burgundy white for its "woody" and "tannic" qualities. You won’t regret giving a gift like this.
Louis Latour's Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru is a good example, an almost perfect balance of red fruit aromas and white grape varietals. You can get it at the finding.wine store for $195.

If your father enjoys the versatility of a white wine, then the 2017 Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte is the right choice. This wine pairs well with seafood and can be a good option for a special Father's Day menu.

On the palate, it is flexible and round, showing an elegant, light and easy-to-drink wine. The fine acidity reveals the characteristics of a Beaujolais Cru, with bright grapefruit, orange peel, vanilla and lime on the finish.
