Let’s celebrate!

Errazuriz Aconcagua Alto Cabernet Sauvignon

This typical bordeaux blend of cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot and cabernet franc isn’t actually French but Chilean! With its aromas of very ripe red and black fruit, spicy notes and touch of woods, Aconcagua Alto is a wonderful choice for any dad who enjoys full-bodied wines. The well-structured red is a great match for grilled red meat, like these brochettes of filet mignon, cherry tomatoes and halloumi. Bon appétit!

Bodega Palacios Remondo Finca La Montesa Rioja 2018

Álvaro Palacios, the winemaker at the helm of Bodega Palacios Remondo, is an emblematic figure in Spanish viticulture. Here, he’s created a wonderful organic Rioja that blends garnacha and tempranillo in which dominant red and black fruit notes meld with woody and spicy touches. This flavourful and well-balanced wine adds a festive touch to even the most classic burgers. Drink it this year or let it sit in your cellar to be enjoyed on another Father’s Day.

Celilo Falls Pinot Noir Oregon

The state of Oregon is synonymous with pinot noir, and Celilo Falls certainly substantiates this reputation. This fleshy and structured organic wine blends aromas of black fruits and leather and slightly smoky notes. You’ll taste cherry and cassis buoyed by lasting supple tannins. It’s the ideal complement to grilled meat like tenderloin. Add a refreshing and slightly piquant Chilean pebre sauce and you’ve definitely got a recipe for success!

Rocca delle Macie Sasyr Toscana

Tuscan Rocca delle Macie Sasyr gets its name from sangiovese and syrah, the two varieties that go into making it. It isn’t short on character, and its notes of cocoa and candied cherry, spiciness and slightly floral touch come together in a complex epicurean experience. Particularly versatile, it can fly solo or accompany a fun recipe like these turmeric lamb satays.
