Mothers, Grads & Dads 2017

It could be my imagination, but time seems to accelerate after Spring Break!  All of the sudden, we are plotting summer- camping, trips, child care and parties.  Before we speed too far ahead, let's not forget the last minute gifts for Mothers, Graduates and Fathers.  Here's an entertaining list to find some inspiration.

Gardner | Outdoor --  Does your Mother/Grandmother/Aunt spend more time outside than inside?  It's Rosé all the way. La Colline Sancerre Rosé (Loire Valley, France)
Best Baker Ever -- There are magical people out there that can create the most divine desserts, pastries and baked goods.  It is nothing to be scoffed at!  Dust off the flour and present this beauty: Weingut Prechtl Leitstall von Molasse Reserve Grüner Veltliner (Weinviertel, Austria)
Chef --  Never a dull meal, ever!  And probably spends just as much time studying culinary items as I do!  Treat them with this:  Paul Reitz Vosne-Romanée (Burgundy, France)
Entertainer -- Either through parties, going to events or just hands down entertaining- Tickle their fancy with this:  Vilmart NV Grand Cellier Brut Premier Cru (Montagne de Reims | Champagne, France)
Book Club -- A contemplative, riveting, thought provoking wine?  Pelassa Riserva Nebbiolo Roero Antaniolo DOCG (Piedmont, Italy)
Professional | Go Getter -- Whether she is a CEO or just an amazing multi tasking Mother, your Go Getter should receive this:  W.T. Vintners 2014 Mourvèdre (Yakima Valley, Washington)

-- A wine that makes you want to dissect and ponder how it could be so amazing: San Cassiano Amarone della Valpolicella (Veneto, Italy)
Arts -- Color! Structure! Depth! Beauty! Intrigue and inspiration- all in this: Nottola Anterivo Super Tuscan (Tuscany, Italy)
Culinary -- Challenge the senses, and give them something a tad bit obscure.  Domaine de Frégate Bandol Rouge (Provence, France)
Technology & Mathematics --  It's not all about 0's and 1's!  Try something exponentionally inspiring:  Spring Valley 2011 Derby Cabernet Sauvignon (Walla Walla Valley, Washington)
Fashion--  Need something with flair and pop to wow?  Here you go:  Domaine de Nalys Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Classique (Southern Rhône, France)
Caring for Others (Nursing, Social Services) --  Though probably wanting a stiff drink, the care giver would still delight with this bombshell: D'Arenberg 2010 The Dead Arm Shiraz (McLaren Vale, Australia)

Grillin' All_Year_Round
-- Got one of these?  Never fear, the perfect BBQ gift is here:  Orin Swift 2013 The Prisoner (Napa Valley, California)
In the Library -- Cigar, leather, tobacco, cedar.  Bordeaux it is.  Fleur du Grand Port Pauillac (Bordeaux, France)
Camping, Hiking, Climbing... always in Nature --  Earthy and rustic:  Vinchio & Vaglio Barolo (Piedmont, Italy)
On the Water -- Ever wonder if he had webbed feet due to the amount of time he spends in the water?  Try this refreshing and zesty treat:  Château Lafargue Pessac-Léognan Blanc (Bordeaux, France)
Tech Dad -- The only way to pluck him from the screen is to spend time with you?  This will help:  Corliss 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon (Walla Walla Valley, Washington)
Alternative Dad --  Whether a step dad, a mom-dad, or just off the beaten path type of dad, this wine will satisfy your need to impress:  Darby 2011 The Swagger Cabernet (Columbia Valley, Washington)

This short list of Moms, Grads and Dads does not complete all the different styles, however, we are here to help you find the perfect wine for them!  Stop in!  We will wrap it for you too.
Cheers-- Jaci
