Father’s Day Picnic

Looking for a fun way to celebrate Dad this year? Skip the ho-hum necktie and opt for a classy picnic instead. Turn a simple meal on a blanket into a celebratory outing with a few father-approved recipes, the perfect Sonoma-Cutrer wine pairings—plus some fun picnic-themed gift ideas to cover all your bases.

There’s a time and a place for a basket full of cold cuts and pre-made potato salad, but Father’s Day is not one of them. Think outside the box—er, basket—and plan Dad’s spread around a showstopper like Grilled Korean-Style Short Ribs.

Easy to make ahead, these flavor-packed ribs blend an exotic mix of flavors ranging from fresh ginger to chili flakes. Pair with a smooth, juicy red like Sonoma-Cutrer’s Russian River Valley Pinot Noir to complement the bold flavors of the beef.

Is Dad more of a hands-on grill man? Scope out a well-equipped picnic site and let him get in on the fun when you toss a few tasty Halibut Hobo Packs over the coals. Prosciutto, citrus and capers infuse the fish with flavors that pair perfectly with Sonoma-Cutrer’s distinctive Les Pierres Chardonnay.

If you want to stick to classic picnic fare, plan your meal around a beautiful Sonoma-Cutrer Roasted Chicken, a crowd pleaser packed with fresh herbs and plenty of garlic. Elevate this lovely dish by serving it with a special-occasion worthy bottle of Founder’s Reserve Legacy Chardonnay.

Still stumped about a gift? Play off the picnic theme with an insulated wine tote, vintage corkscrew or picnic-ready stemless wine glasses. Consider throwing in a nice selection of artisanal salts and gourmet spreads for foodie fathers, or surprise active dads with a new bocce ball or croquet set to enjoy between helpings.

For a gift that keeps on giving, why not sign Dad up for Club Cutrer? He’ll get first dibs on limited release wines, enjoy discounts and receive three exclusive shipments of Sonoma-Cutrer wine throughout the year.

No matter what you pack in your Father’s Day picnic basket, turn it into a truly memorable celebration with your favorite bottle of Sonoma-Cutrer wine.
