Treat Dad this Father’s Day!
It’s that time of year again! Father’s Day is coming up, which is the perfect time to shower the special men in your life with love and appreciation – and what better way to do that than in the form of delicious wine!
Impress with a selection of quality wines from Coonawarra in South Australia, where the primary planting is Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The unique geology of Coonawarra, coupled with a Mediterranean-esque climate, makes for distinct wines unlike anywhere else in the world.
We’ve curated a list of some of our best wines to gift this Father’s Day:
The Brand’s Laira’s ‘Blockers’ range has a reputation for expressing the bold fruit flavours of Coonawarra, yet also delivering a powerful and elegant style of wine. The range is named after one of the original ‘Blockers’ – our founder, Eric Brand. He may enjoy something light, like our Blockers chardonnay with aromas of white peach, nectarine and grapefruit or something heavier like our Blockers cabernet sauvignon with deep classic berry fruits and blackberry. For something in-between, you can’t go wrong with Blockers cabernet merlot.
To experience a truly exceptional Coonawarra wine, try the One Seven One cabernet sauvignon from our Flagship range. The fruit for this wine is sourced from our block of cabernet sauvignon vineyards planted in 1971. The combination of fruit from old, established vines with maturation in top-quality French Oak has produced a fantastic balanced wine that he will surely love.
Father’s Day could be the perfect time for a trip to the Coonawarra! Coonawarra is a hidden gem nestled between Melbourne and Adelaide and home to Brand’s Laira. Our Coonawarra Cellar Door has been recently renovated and offers a relaxing but modern indoor dining area, lounge and fireplace. Enjoy an alfresco dining area, woodfired pizzas and soak in the beautiful views of the vineyards!
