Perfect Pairings For Fathers Day

Perfect Pairings for Father’s Day

Dad’s sometimes get a bad rap for being impossible to buy for, but what they’re really looking for is a perfect pairing. And these pairings aren’t just for the wine-lovers in your life (although we offer up one of those too!)


If flights are what your dad is into, treat him to a once in a lifetime gift with a flight in one of the Canadian Aviation Museum’s Yellow Birds, authentic WWII-era training aircraft. Once he’s back on solid ground continue the tour of Essex County with a Barrels Bottles & Brews Flight Log where he can explore and pour his way through the 12 participating craft breweries and 2 distilleries in Windsor Essex.


For a total Pelee experience, book dad a Friday Night Paddle with Pelee Wings, you can bring your own kayak or rent one for the night. Stop in for a cheese and wine pairing at Pelee Island Winery on your way. Start with a tour demonstrating the production of wine and finish with cheese and wine pairings.


You may not have Scottish ancestry, but golf and whisky do, so we’ve paired them together with a distinctly Windsor feel. Book you and dad a round of golf at one of the over 20 lush green courses Windsor Essex is home to then treat him to a unique and exclusive educational experience that you won’t forget: the Whisky Blending Class at J.P. Wiser’s Experience. You’ll join Master Blende, Dr. Don Livermore where you’ll learn, create and blend your own custom whisky.


If dad is a grill-master or king of the kitchen stock him up with farm fresh ingredients with the W.E. Heart Local Passport as your guide. Visit for the freshest meats, locally-produced fruits and veggies and where to shop for the best bounty of Essex County!


If he goes by the name ‘pops’ you’ll want to head to Soda Pop Bros for a 6 pack of original and imported flavours from around the world. Then stop in to What’s Poppin’ Popcorn Factory and pick up a bag – or a pail! – of sweet, savoury or gourmet popcorn. The hard part will be choosing your flavours!
