The Perfect Father’s Day Wine

If the dad in your life is anything like my dad or hubby, they probably love wine (ha!). And if you’re looking to gift in that direction, I have the perfect Father’s Day present for you! Meet my go-to Sonoma County wine, Bear Flag  Zinfandel!

For Mark, the bigger and bolder the wine, the better – and Bear Flag Zinfandel is all that and more. It has a robust flavor with hints of blueberry, vanilla, and toast! Not to mention, the label is really masculine, which I know Mark will appreciate. The best part? History nerds will appreciate the fact that there’s a cool real-life story of independence behind the brand. This amazing wine retails for less than $25 and if you click here you’ll find retailers close to you that carry it.

One of Mark and Austin’s favorite things to do together is to BBQ, so I thought it would be cute to get this wine picnic basket which also includes a cutting board and cheese knives, as well as this grill press to accompany the wine. Put it all in a basket and you’ve got yourself the perfect Father’s Day gift, all for under $100!

To top it all off, I’m planning a little family BBQ outside with all of Mark’s favorite food. Pro tip: Bear Flag Zinfandel pairs perfectly with a tender rib eye or any of your favorite red meat.

If you do happen to buy a bottle of The Bear Flag Zinfandel I’d love to know how you liked it!

Thank you so much to Bear Flag for sponsoring this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
