bvWines_GeorgeDeLaTour.jpgNAPA, Calif., May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For Father's Day, all Dad really wants is a little respect, a little evidence that you've been paying attention. Show him that you haven't missed a step by making his favorite meal.  Even better -- give Dad a bottle of wine selected specifically to enhance the flavor, the aroma, the experience of his favorite meal. And you know what that meal is, don't you?

To ease your gift giving, here's a helpful group of wine-pairing suggestions: 

"Burger Pop"
For "Burger Pop," the patty and the bun are just the beginning. He learned long ago that the biggest, best flavors can come from artful combinations of ingredients. That's why "Burger Pop" is happy to pair a bottle of Chalone Estates Pinot Noir with his latest creation, the farm-raised buffalo, sauteed mushroom, Roquefort burger on a brioche bun. 

"Delivery Dad"
What is Dad's favorite thing to make for dinner? Yep, a phone call. That a quick trip of digits across the touch screen is all it takes for food to show up is an endless source of amazement for "Delivery Dad." Whether it's spicy Vietnamese, Thai or Chinese, "Delivery Dad" is even happier to pair it with Snap Dragon Riesling.

"Fajita Father"
There's nothing like the sizzle of fajitas, onions and peppers on a hot iron skillet to signal that a hearty dinner is about to be served. "Fajita Father's" seared steak strips go well with his signature salsa. For a fruity mouthful to offset the spice, they're even better paired with BV Coastal Estates Red Blend.
"Mediterranean Man"
You've got your lamb, your couscous, your lemony marinade spiked with oregano and rosemary. To "Mediterranean Man," that combo is just one step short of perfection -- all it needs is a bottle of Sterling Vineyards Napa Merlot to bring out his inner Zorba.

"Grill Guy"
Let others have their grilled burgers and dogs because "Grill Guy" takes cooking over coals to a level of high art. Give him a cut of beef and he can smoke, roast or sear it to become the centerpiece of a fine summer meal, particularly when it includes a bottle of Rosenblum Cellars Zinfandel.

"Papa Chateaubriand"
Keen to enjoy the best of the best, "Papa Chateaubriand" chooses quality over quantity. He's eager to have the finest of steaks with the King of Wines, Georges de Latour Private Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon. The classic wine from the Beaulieu Vineyard is, in every way possible, a gift in good taste.

"Master Pasta"
If you want to witness happiness, there is no purer expression of it than "Master Pasta" savoring a forkful of his favorite hearty Italian dish with a glass of A x Acacia Pinot Noir. The savory combination of tomatoes, cheese, pasta and Pinot is the definition of comfort food.
