Getting better with time
How do you gift appreciation to an entity that never demands one? I am talking about fathers. They care and nourish and love and provide for…but never demand anything in return. It is enough for them to know that their children are doing well and are everything that they wanted them to be.
And now that you are doing well, it’s time to honor the tradition that is Father’s Day, to show how much his presence has meant in your life. It’s time to show your father that nothing and no one can ever replace them in your life, because fathers are timeless, just like wine. They both remain timeless, one with taste, another with love and wisdom. We are never too young to turn to our fathers for help and understanding, and they are never too old for us to show some gratitude.
Now that the importance of this day has been stressed upon, let me tell you what kinds of gifts are trending this season. Let’s begin with wine itself!
European wines are considered the best in the world, and are classified according to region (e.g. Bordeaux, Rioja and Chianti), while non-European wines are most often classified by grape (e.g. Pinot Noir and Merlot). Some wines have become so famous that they have become a part of marketing jargon itself, with the brand name gaining more fame than the kind of wine itself. For instance, Meritage is generally a Bordeaux-style blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, and may also include Malbec, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Franc.
Wines are all mostly made only with grapes; if they are, however, made with any other fruit, it will be mentioned in the name of the wine itself, for example, elderberry wine, fruit wine, apple wine, rice wine etc.
Vintage wines are very prestigious to own as they are specially made with grapes were all or mostly grown in a particular year. As we all know, wine gets better with age, so the older the year on a vintage wine, the better it is.
The best vintages from the best vineyards across the world sell at thousands of dollars a bottle, and are well-sought for by collectors. It is a matter of pride for them to have the best wine in their personal cellars.
