We agree that dads are tough to buy for. It’s not the time to buy a new tie for a father currently working from home. But budget constraints eliminate the option of spoiling him with an updated barbecue or a new set of golf clubs. So, where does that leave us? Frankly, we like to avoid the kitschy personalized beer koozies and beard trimming kits. Those types of gifts can get the job done – but they don’t exactly scream thoughtful or personal. That’s why we’re sharing our answer for an absolute sure-fire and easy father’s day gift – especially for dad with a penchant for food and wine.
Gift a SOMM TV Subscription for Unbelievable Access
For the dad who loves stories, SOMM TV delves into bottles from more than a century ago. A father who has a soft spot for family will appreciate episodes that focus on multi-generational producers. And for the eternal learners, the ones who reach for an encyclopedia or textbook instead of Google, a subscription to SOMM TV includes wine education from the industry’s top sommeliers.
New Content Every Couple Of Days
The hard-working production team at SOMM TV delivers new series throughout the year, with new episodes out every week for some. Subscribers also have access to the original SOMM documentaries and The Delicacy, all directed by Jason Wise.
Exclusive to SOMM TV, the much anticipated fourth film in the SOMM series is due for release in the next 12 months. 8,000 years in the making, the next chapter in the acclaimed SOMM films dives into what wine truly means to human history and the land we inhabit. From the birthplace of wine in the Caucus Mountains to vines in the Americas, this film explores the crossroads of wine, religion, and conflict.
Drool-Worthy Food Pairings
Wine without food is like salt without pepper or peanut butter without jam. Fret not, SOMM TV is the spot to find decadent food content to round out your (or your dad’s) palate.
Recently, The Delicacy – a film about the sea urchin and how it’s harvested, eaten and the role it plays in nature – reached the top spot on Apple documentary charts. And you guessed it; the film is available to SOMM TV subscribers.
And coming later this summer, a food and wine competition unlike any other you’ve seen will premiere on SOMM TV. Sparklers will feature head-to-head competitors matching unconventional ingredients with some of our favorite bottles of sparkling wine.
