With Father’s Day being this Sunday, we thought it would be beneficial to share some great wine gift baskets for men we found on gifts.com.

Gourmet Wine & Cheese Board Gift Basket. This gourmet collection of savory edibles – beef salami, biscotti, spicy cocktail nuts, sesame crackers, Sonoma Cheese spread and gourmet mustard – is enhanced by the balanced fruit flavors of Vendange Merlot, Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah.. A beautiful gift of savory edibles with an attractive cutting board and stylish cheese knife.($34.99)

Tuscan Trattoria Wine Gift Set. Nestled in a five-quart stainless steel colander is everything you need to cook authentic, savory Italian pasta dinners. Two types of pasta, Trombette and Trottoloni, pair well with both of these classic sauces – sugo di pomodoro and pesto alla Genovese. Enjoy your pasta with the bottle of Banfi Col di Sasso, a hearty Tuscanblend of Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. For dessert, an all natural twice baked almond anise biscotti completes the meal. ($59.99)

Spanish Paella & Rioja Wine Gift Set. The heart and soul of Spanish cuisine is fragrant paella. This gift set starts you off with the essentials: a traditional steel paella pan, imported saffron, pimenton and paella rice which naturally absorbs all of these wonderful spices. The bottle of Campo Viejo Reserva comes from Rioja, Spain’s most prestigious wine region. It delivers complex, spicy flavors that complement the exceptional flavors of Spanish paella. ($59.99)
