Father’s Day is just around the corner, and if you’re scrambling to find the perfect gift for dad, we have some suggestions for you. If he tolerates wine at best and would much rather have a cold beer in his hand, tending the BBQ and watching a game on TV during that special day. Fear not, I have three foolproof ways to entice your father to join the family for a great day of wine tasting at Wilson Creek Winery.
1. Bribery: Let’s face it, most dads can be swayed with the promise of a good meal. I know I can, just say “RIB-EYE” and you got me. Creekside Grille at Wilson Creek serves delicious food to pair with wine. My favorite is the Hanger Steak grilled medium rare. Tell dad that you’ll treat him to lunch at the Grille if he agrees to come wine tasting. And if that doesn’t work, they serve beer in
the Grille.
2. Reverse Psychology: Sometimes, the best way to get your dad to do something is to tell him he can’t do it. Use reverse psychology by telling your dad that wine tasting is not for him, that its way too much for him beyond his abilities, and that he should just stick to his beer. Trust me, he’ll be intrigued by the challenge and will want to prove you wrong. And if he still doesn’t enjoy his time wine tasting, at least he’ll have the satisfaction of saying “I told you so.” Plus, Creekside Grille serves beer.
3. The Dad Joke Approach: Dads love a good joke, so why not use that to your advantage? Tell a good Dad wine joke like “How do you know if a wine is good?” Look at the winemaker if he drinks wine out of an old tire – you know it’s a GOODYEAR.” He’ll appreciate the humor and may even be curious enough to try the wine. Plus, Creekside Grille serves beer. So, there you have it, three ways to entice your dad to go wine tasting with the family this Father’s Day. And if all else fails, just remind him that spending time with his favorite child (you, of course) is the best gift of all. Plus, Creekside Grille serves beer.
