Stuck for ideas this Father's Day? We've rounded up 2021's best gifts for wine lovers to help you nail the brief – from birth year wines and gadets, to gift packs and unforgettable winery experiences. Find out more below.

A Seppeltsfield Centenary Tour

At the Seppeltsfield Centennial Cellar, dad can taste tawny made in his birth year directly from the barrel. This is a fascinating insight into the aging process of premium fortified wine, with Seppeltsfield being the only winery in the world to release a 100-year-old single vintage wine each year. $169 per person. 

The 2019 Yarra Yering Dry Red No. 1

Halliday Tasting Team member Jane Faulkner described our 2022 Wine of the Year as ‘mesmerising’. At 98 points, it’s sure to sell out fast. Pick up a bottle for dad’s cellar while stock lasts. RRP $120.

A Coravin Pivot

Extend the life of your everyday wines with the new compact gadet from Coravin. The ingenious combination of the Pivot Stopper and Device allows you to pour just a glass, preserving the remaining bottle for up to four weeks. RRP $185.

The Cellar Experience at Vasse Felix

Book The Cellar Experience at Margaret River's founding wine estate for a private tasting of historic wines in the exclusive Vasse Felix Vault – followed by a three-course meal from the a la carte menu in the award-winning restaurant. $135 per person.

A Father's Day Flight from Lark

The team at Lark have carefully curated three dad-approved whiskies, for a journey of flavour that is sure to impress. The pack includes the highly awarded trio of Symphony No1, Brandy & PX Sherry and Rum Cask III. RRP $180.

The Four Pillars Single Vineyard Bloody Shiraz

Following the success of the always-sold-out original, Four Pillars have released their first ever Single Vineyard Bloody Shiraz Gin. Made in partnership with winemaker Sarah Crowe, the exclusive style is made from one of the Yarra Valley’s finest shiraz vineyards – Yarra Yering’s Underhill Shiraz. RRP $175.

The Ultimate Penfolds Tour

Start with a visit to the Grange Cottage, the original home of Dr Christopher and Mary Penfold, before viewing the Magill Estate winery, vintage cellar and underground drives, and concluding with an intimate tasting of Penfolds’ most awarded and sought after wines – including one vintage of Grange. $150 per person.

A Henschke Father's Day Gift Pack

This Father's Day curated gift pack includes six gift-boxed shiraz and grenache blends, complemented by a Henschke branded apron to ensure that dad is barbecue-ready for spring. RRP $309.

A Halliday Annual Membership

With access to more than 150,000 tasting notes from over 3500 wineries in Australia – plus a 12-month subscription to Halliday magazine and copy of the 2022 Halliday Wine Companion – dad will never drink a bad bottle again. From $79.
