Wine Gifts for Dad — Father’s Day & More

The Perfect Wine Gift for Every Dad

Giving Dad wine for Father’s Day is a great idea. All of the wine gifts on this page can be delivered to Dad, or if you’ll be celebrating Dad in person, you can have them delivered to yourself and bring them with you on Father’s Day. These wine gifts are great for your actual Dad, your husband, your boyfriend, your brother, your buddies, your uncle, and your grandfather.

FYI: I find great wine deals so you don’t have to. To keep me on the hunt, I earn a commission when you buy wine based on my recommendations.

Where to Ship the Wine Gifts

You may not be aware, but due to complex shipping laws, gifts of alcohol can’t be sent to every state from every state. You don’t need to worry... just select the state where you’ll ship the wine and we’ll let you know which gifts can be delivered there.

Make it Easy This Year with a Subscription Box

You are at and wine subscriptions are what we know best. We recommend a 3- or 6- month wine club membership to help him get all the way through grilling season and into the fall. Check out these three wine of the month clubs we think are perfect for Dad this year.

Three-month gifts typically cost around $150. You can spend more with longer gifts and more expensive wine. If your budget is smaller, shop the one-time gifts in this guide or see more: Wine Gifts Under $100 and Wine Gifts Under $50.

Shop Roscioli Wine Clubs

Rarely-Exported Italian Wine

For years I've listened to wine lovers wax poetic about Italy and I never understood it. Then I started working with Roscioli — an authentically Roman company that is 100s of years old — and I began to understand what makes people so excited about Italian wine.

The Roscioli wine clubs ship directly from Rome. It's considered a quarterly wine club (because payments are made quarterly) but to simplify shipping requirements, they only ship it twice per year. They offer two levels of Italian wine clubs and two levels of Exceptional French & Italian Wine clubs. Prices range from 179-1000€ (~$210-1200, four times per year).

An Introduction to Italian Wine

If Dad's not already keen on Italian wine, you can send him a taste of the hubbub. Millesima knows about more than just French wine and they curate Italian Wine gift sets, too.

These are not the cheap, mass-produced Ruffino and Antinori wines you'll find in your local stores. These are high-quality Italian wines from affordable wine regions.
