Holiday Wine Pairings

The holidays are not only a time to enjoy festive lights and presents, but also a time to enjoy delicious food and wine.  It is always a tough venture to pick out the perfect wine that will complement your food, so here’s a quick guide for what wine to drink with your holiday meal.

If you’re having ham:
This salty, scrumptious food practically begs to be paired with something sweet.  If you are a white wine person, try a German Riesling or Gewurztraminer.  For all you red wine drinkers, stick with lighter wines such as Pinot Noir or Beaujolais.


If you’re having turkey:
We highly recommend Sauvignon Blanc to drink while eating turkey, but if you aren’t a white wine drinker, there are still some good options.  Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and Syrah are some good red wine choices.


If you’re having duck:
It’s important to consider the way the duck is prepared when trying to pair with wine.  If roasting, smoking, or braising the duck, try a red, such as Red Burgundy, Tempranillo, or Zinfandel.  If you are enjoying duck with a fruit-based sauce, try a sweet, white wine like Gewurztraminer, Riesling, and Sauternes.

 

If you’re having red meat:
If you’re eating red meat, there is really only one type of wine to drink – red.  It is difficult to find a good white wine match, so if you like red, stick with it.  Try a Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, or Zinfandel to get the most out of your food and wine combo.
