Your dad was never that into wine. Sure, he'd have a glass of the "house Red" with a steak when you were out for dinner, but he sure didn't know the different between a Moscato and a Chardonnay and he had definitely never visited a winery.
Fast forward to now. Your father is a different man now that he's retired. He's developed interests other than working and reading the newspaper quietly in a comfortable chair. He went on a LIFE-CHANGING (his word, not yours) trip to California and became a complete wine snob. He bought a huge wine chilling fridge. He's declared Sideways his favorite movie. It seems like it's getting out of hand. It's okay, though—obsessions are good, they keep the mind sharp! And red wine is heart-healthy (I think?).
The newly-obsessed wine snob will love this Wineries of Napa & Sonoma Set ($250, Pop Chart Lab)—he can hang it in his newly-christened "wine cellar" (aka: the basement of your childhood home).
