Expert Wine Pairings for Father’s Day Grilling

With so many award-winning wines on the market, it can be hard to narrow your selection down to the best bottle for special occasions. That’s especially true when you’re trying to find a wine to pair with your Father’s Day feast perfectly. Luckily, ONEHOPE offers some of the best grilling wines for all your favorite dishes. Check out some of our top Father’s Day wine pairing recommendations below!


Grilled Beef Filet & Vintner Cabernet Sauvignon

When it comes to top-rated wines for grilling steaks, it doesn’t get much better than our Vintner Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine is bold and beautiful, with complex aromas and textures of dark berries and toffee with an echo of vanilla, providing a richly balanced experience when paired with a perfectly grilled filet.


Grilled Salmon & Hospitality Pinot Noir

If you’re a fan of lighter fare, our Hospitality Pinot Noir is bursting with the aroma of ripe strawberry and bing cherry, paired with a hint of cinnamon for an elegant, silky finish. Pair this juicy Pinot with a fresh, flaky grilled salmon for a taste of luxury.


BBQ Ribs & Vintner Red Blend

Our Vintner Red Blend is big and bold with complex berries and cocoa aromas. With a light to medium body and an off-dry finish, this smooth red is perfect for washing down a rack of ribs, straight off the grill.

Pro Tip: Try pairing this deliciously drinkable Red Blend with a fresh bacon cheeseburger for a weeknight meal your whole family will love!

Your Father’s Day Menu: Summer Skewers and Pinot Noir

When searching for award-winning red wines for barbecue dishes, look no further than our Monterey Reserve Pinot Noir, which provides a healthy dose of textured tannins and generous aromas to make your BBQ pop! Pair this deliciously unique wine with our favorite summer skewers and chipotle BBQ sauce for a Father’s Day feast Dad’s sure to love.

Summer Skewers

Makes 10-12 skewers

Prep Time: 50 minutes

Cook Time: 1 hour 

Building skewers is a fun, interactive way to involve your family in the kitchen. This healthy, crowd-pleasing dish is great for kids and adults alike and is completely adaptable to suit your dietary needs or personal tastes. Mix up the meats, marinades, or fresh produce to create a seasonal dish that’ll always shine!

Don’t have access to a backyard grill? Looking to shake it up and make these later for a taste of summer, year-round? No problem! These tasty skewers are just as good cooked indoors with a stovetop grill pan or skillet.


  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 1 ½ cups oil & vinegar salad dressing or marinade
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 yellow zucchini
  • ½ red onion
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms (about 12)
  • ½ pineapple, skinned


  1. Cut all ingredients into 1-in. squares or cubes. Try to keep the meat pieces all roughly the same size to ensure uniform cooking.
  2. Add the chicken and marinade to in a medium bowl and let it sit for at least an hour (if you’ve got more time, you can refrigerate this mixture for up to 24 hours). Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before lighting the grill.
  3. Assemble skewers. Alternate between chicken and vegetables until you run out of ingredients.
  4. Lay the skewers on a hot grill and cook for about 10-15 minutes, rotating regularly to cook evenly. 
  5. When the chicken reaches 165 degrees, remove your skewers from the grill and brush with chipotle BBQ sauce (recipe below).
  6. Enjoy!


Chipotle BBQ Sauce

Makes 6 cups

Total Time: 10 minutes

This smoky chipotle sauce is the perfect pairing for a dry Pinot Noir. Once your skewers are fully cooked, brush them generously with this delicious sauce (and don’t be afraid to get a little messy!) for a savory treat you’ll crave again and again. 


  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 cups ketchup
  • ¾  cup red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 chipotle pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Brush over fully cooked skewers and enjoy!

Whether grilling up classic favorites or trying something new, making Dad feel special on Father’s Day starts with delicious food and the perfect wine pairing. Cheers to all the dads out there and those who love them, knowing the way to their hearts is through their stomachs! Bon appétit!
