Matchbook Dads

by: Virginia Sandfer

We asked Dads at Matchbook to describe their perfect Father’s Day. The responses were the same across the board – a great meal and some wine!


Pat Kane  President and CEO
The perfect Father’s Day “weekend” for me is with my two sons, in Omaha, Nebraska, for the College World Series. This includes dining at one of the fine restaurants in The Old Market while enjoying a glass (or two) of Mossback Chalk Hill Cabernet.


Rob W. Senior Accountant
Spending time with family, watching baseball on TV or at the ballpark. Just soaking it all in while sipping on Chasing Venus Sauvignon Blanc.

 


Rob V. Regional Manager, Central U.S.
My Father’s Day is celebrated in three stages. The morning always includes Sunday brunch with eggs Benedict topped with crab meat and paired with Matchbook Chardonnay. The afternoon is spent at the ballpark watching my son, Ian, play baseball. Chances are Tinto Rey Rosé will be in the Yeti tumbler. The evening will include some chillin’ and grillin’ pork tenderloin and veggies paired with The Arsonist Red Blend.


Javier S. | Lead Bottling Line Operator
I like to spend the day with my family at home – throwing some carne asada on the grill and drinking Matchbook Cabernet (and tequila, of course!)

 


Blake W. | Central Division Sales Manager
I will be spending it with my wife Kelly, my daughters Casey and Hunter and their husbands. The day will be spent on the boat, enjoying some sunshine (hopefully), good conversation and laughs with a cooler full of Tinto Rey Rosé and Chasing Venus Sauvignon Blanc. We will follow that up with grilled ribeye, wild mushroom risotto, a summer salad, and The Arsonist Red Blend to wash it all down.


Greg G. | Director of Vineyard Operations
Make breakfast with the kids and spend the entire day together. We barbecue steak or ribs with a side of corn, green beans and watermelon. It’s a total summer BBQ! Paired with Tinto Rey Super Tinto Red Blend to complement the tangy BBQ sauce!  


John T. | Director of National Accounts
Wake up early, drink a cup of pour over BRIDGE coffee (my new fave), read the SF Chronicle newspaper front to back, go for a 5-mile run, relax by the pool, then I cook up special family BBQ (cowboy steaks and veggies) to honor me. With all that activity, I go to bed early. It’s the only day I break my rule no drinking on Sunday. My favorite wines of the day: mid-day Tinto Rey Rosé and for dinner –The Arsonist Red Blend.


Ken B. | Regional Sales Manager, Mid-Atlantic
My perfect Father’s Day is brunch with the kids and grandkids. Dogs won’t let us sleep in, ever! Brunch would be eggs Benedict with hash browns. Tinto Rey Verdejo and Rosé followed up with oranges and whipped cream. One day to be spoiled and pay no attention to eating right.


Matt Q. | Graphic Designer
Wake up late to a good breakfast. Hang out with my family. End the day with grilling a good dinner paired with Matchbook Chardonnay.

 


Jose C. | Cellar Master
I like to drink  The “Red King” so I can celebrate Father’s Day like a king! I pair it with a custom baked pizza with all the toppings – Canadian bacon, pepperoni, arugula, mozzarella and fresh roasted garlic. 


Miguel C. | Cellar Crew 
I spend my Father’s Day at home with my family and a home cooked meal with a chilled glass of an old favorite – Musque Chardonnay.


 

Happy Father’s Day! We hope you enjoy your day with a glass of wine in hand to celebrate.

Visit our tasting room Sunday – Thursday 11am – 4:30pm or Friday & Saturday 11am – 8:30pm to pick up wine for the day. Or give Dad a day off from the grill and join us for a pre-Father’s Day celebration at the Matchbook Tasting Room. Sip wine and enjoy Rollin’ Roadhouse BBQ and live music by Whiskey Moonlight on Saturday, June 15th from 5 – 8pm.
