Several wineries are pulling out all the stops this Father’s Day. Take a peek at the thirst quenching menu of options below. You’re sure to find one that will appeal to the special people you want to honor.
Father’s Day Beefsteak Dinner at Brook Hollow Winery
594 State Highway 94, Columbia
Brook Hollow throws an epic bash for dad every year. This one is set for Sunday, June 18. The entire family will be treated to all-you-can-eat steaks with table side service, and live music. Tickets are $40 for adults, $15 for kids 12 and under.
This is a meal fit for kings: dinner consists of beef tenderloin cooked in butter, served on thin-sliced Italian bread, with sides of French fries and coleslaw. Experienced beefsteak dinner guests (the annual event has become a tradition for many and often sells out) make towers of the bread on their tables to track just how many slices of beef they’ve eaten.
The party kicks off at 4 pm.
Father’s Day Live Music at Sharrott Winery
370 S. Egg Harbor Road, Hammonton
If the main man in your life loves live music and wine, head over to Sharrott Winery for a great lunch and performance by Mike Beck.

General admission is free, and a wine tasting is $8 a person. The tasting includes six samples of Sharrott’s line of award-winning wines, and the tasting comes with a souvenir glass. There will also be a food truck on site serving up delicious wine-friendly lunch fare.
