Nothing better than celebrating Father’s Day with a family lunch, pairing your favorite recipe and surprising everyone with a selection of wines. If you prefer to enjoy an outdoor experience, we recommend you make a reservation at your favorite restaurant or celebrate your dad with an unforgettable tour around nature and wine.

Share a special bottle

Wine is an elegant gift and always well received. It allows us to share and enjoy a good time with our loved ones. Choosing a bottle of wine, thinking of giving something special, generates conversations and anecdotes around it, in addition to creating moments of pleasure around family lunches and dinners.

MCC Etiqueta NegraAccording to personal tastes as well as the personality of our father, we can choose which wine to give, and after acquiring it, choose to share it the same day or maybe to be guarded and uncorked in the future. If you want to make a gift that lasts over time, to those patient fathers who will enjoy the wait around the aging of a great wine, we recommend one of the great novelties in the Super Premium portfolio of Concha y Toro: Marques de Casa Concha Etiqueta Negra. This elegant blend of red varieties, extracted from El Mariscal vineyard in Puente Alto, in the heart of Maipo Valley, has an age potential of more than 20 years and has been praised by the world’s leading critics, only weeks after its launch. This powerful and silky blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and touches of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, not only reflects the great character of the Puente Alto terroir, but also achieves a different, fresh and intense proposal.

With dark and deep red colors, this wine has unctuous notes of cherry, blackcurrant, cedar, blackberry, graphite and tar. While it seduces with its firm tannins, it also has a smooth texture and a long finish, balancing its power and generating a true explosion of aromas and flavors. The British critic Tim Atkin, in his recent visit to Chile, met with Marcelo Papa, Technical Director of Viña Concha y Toro, to taste this new label. He praised its great structure and potential; assuring that Marques de Casa Concha Etiqueta Negra will only improve with the passage of time, granting it with 93 points.

Reserva Privada Jamon SerranoTo pair the selected recipes of Father’s Day, both in lunches and for family dinners, we recommend to surprise everybody with the Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada line, which stands out for its sophistication and superior quality. In each of its three varieties; Sauvignon Blanc, Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvginon, Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada offers special pairings, filled with balance, even for the most complex dishes.

Marcelo Papa, Technical Director of Viña Concha y Toro and winemaker in charge of these delicate wines, highlights: Casillero del Diablo Reserva Privada is a line of wines made from grapes selected from vineyards located in the best terroirs in Chile. These wines combine to perfection, elegance and sophistication.”

We invite you to reread the post How to Buy Wine in 10 Steps, where you will find more tips to give the perfect wine, according to the personality of each dad. 

Experience wine with your family

If you want to plan an experience away from home to celebrate parents who love good wine, visiting the tourism center of Viña Concha y Toro, located in Pirque, just 45 minutes south of Santiago, is undoubtedly a memorable experience.

Dia del padre Tour PirqueWith tours from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm from Monday to Sunday, Concha y Toro offers guided tours through its gardens and centuries-old vines with tastings of its best wines, as well as the option of adding an extra tasting of Marques de Casa Concha wines paired with local cheeses. In addition to the tour, you can visit the Concha y Toro’s Wine Bar, to enjoy a gastronomic proposal with great local identity, filled with aromas and flavors from the Valley. At the bar, you can taste the full range of the company’s wines, in different formats: from accompanying your lunch to tasting them by the glass. Concha y Toro’s Wine Shop, located within the winery in Pirque, also offers special prices on wines, as well as an attractive range of accessories and wine souvenirs.

The important thing, whatever the scenario chosen to celebrate this date, is to spend quality time with our loved ones, and generate memories that will accompany us for life.

Happy day to all fathers!
