Father’s Day is about celebrating the bond formed between Fathers and their sons and daughters. For us, it’s also about passing a love of wine onto the next generation and celebrating important family traditions that often include a special bottle. In celebration, our Founder, Greg Lambrecht, had the opportunity to sit down with some other notable dads to talk about fatherhood, their life passions, and, of course, their favorite wine.

In their glasses, Marc and his daughters enjoyed sips of 2019 Aloft Chenin Black and 2019 Dark Matter Cabernet Sauvignon. Watch the interview here.
