I'm looking for a Father's Day gift for my Dad (planning ahead) and he is very into wine.  I know there are some cozy and other series out there that feature wine (such as Michele Scott's "Wine Lover's Mystery" series).  I don't often read mysteries myself, so I wonder if of you mystery folks might be able to recommend a good "wine fiction" title or two?

Thanks in advance for any and all help smiley

Hi!

I picked up the first in the Wine Lovers Mysteries 'Murder Uncorked', it was not my cup of tea/glass of wine, lol. Not knowing what your dad's preferences are for style and content, I just did a quick google and this list on Amazon looks promising: Wine Mysteries. In fact, I see a couple of titles I may look into, myself! 

Good luck!
