Here’s to Dad!
Great Wines for ol’ Pops
June is here and Father’s Day is but a few weeks away.For all those times he’s walked uphill both ways, Dad deserves something he will truly enjoy this Father’s Day! If you lucky, maybe he’ll even share some with his *favorite* child…We asked sommeliers around the country which wines men gravitate toward at dinner and compiled them into a custom list of “Daddy Wines” with something for every dad.
The Wine Dad Loves. DELIVERED. 
Order by Wednesday, June 5th for delivery by Father’s Day.
Featured Wines
Troublemaker Red
Paso Robles, CA

This little Troublemaker shows uncanny complexity in its youth. (Didn’t we all?) A one-of-a-kind blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Petite Syrah and Zinfandel, this is a delightful red – rich and fruity, with undertones of smoke and violets. 



Avignonesi Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
Frogs Leap Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, CA

 Bring home a frog that will really make dad proud. It won’t fit in your pocket, but it is perfect in a glass. Deep, intense black fruit with bright acidity and long gorgeous flavors. Yummy now, but will also age 20–30 years.



This Week’s Featured Wine Lists
Available now in the Drync iPhone App

Just like wine, every Father has his own unique characteristics. Our new Daddy Wines lists offers a range of wines from lush Chardonnays, to Zinfandel blends and full-bodied Cabs – all indicated by sommeliers to be the most popular among Dads. 

Summer is unofficially here, and Dad’s everywhere are breaking out their grilling gear. These BBQ paired wines will help Father fill his wine rack with interesting hand-selected wines to compliment any meal – from grilled chicken to marbled rib-eyes!
To buy wines from these and other lists, go to the list tab in the Drync App.
