Don’t forget the wine when planning your holiday party! One question: Is there truly a wine that pairs well with all of the flavors of a holiday meal?
From appetizers to dessert there are several wines that will pair nicely with your meal from start to finish.
Sparkling wines are typically paired with the holidays. They bring elegance and sophistication to any meal or party. For any holiday, sparkling wines shine brightly!
Pinot Grigio is an aromatic, light-bodied white that stands up perfectly to the rich, bold flavors that encompass any holiday menu.
Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp white wine with citrus flavors and herbal undertones that pair well with almost anything on your buffet.
Pinot Noir is a light red wine with simple flavors that will show off the big flavors of the meal.
Syrah is an edgier, more daring wine. Characteristically spicy, it can handle the classic flavors of a traditional holiday dinner.
Rosé is a smart consideration to pair with your meal. For guests who aren’t sure between red and white, dry rosé offers versatility that pairs well with nearly every part of the feast.
If you’re not sure how much to buy, remember that there are 4 glasses of wine in a bottle. Each guest will likely drink one glass during a cocktail hour and 2 glasses during dinner. It’s best to plan for one bottle per guest to ensure you won’t run out!
