If your dad routinely unwinds after work with a bottle glass of merlot, we bet he would appreciate a gift card from your local wine shop. If you don’t have one, we recommend Astor Wines & Spirits, which has a collection that spans the globe and often runs sales on already affordable wine. Astor Wines & Spirits is based in New York City, but it ships nationally (check its website for state-based restrictions). It also has a great selection of wines, sake, and spirits for the dad who lives more than a few blocks from a good wine shop. If his tastes are evolved enough that he knows exactly what he likes, he can search the Astor site by name, country, region, or grape.
