Wine Pairings for Your Christmas Feast

Post image

We don’t know about you but one of things we look forward to most at the holidays is dinner! Let us help you put the finishing touches on your Christmas dinner plan with the perfect wine for your favorite dish.

Honey ham (with extra spiced glaze, if you’re anything like me) is a staple of many Christmas feasts. Sonder Roussanne or Johnnes Zillinger Riesling are both crisp whites with rich fruit notes that work perfectly with that delicious sweet saltiness of glazed ham.

Maybe you like to set a traditional Victorian table with a roast duck or Christmas goose. For your rich duck, the earthy red fruit of Chateau du Hureau is a winner, or for a lighter take, try the foresty fruit smoothness of Mount Riley Pinot.

The bubbles and richness of Lini Rosato or Marie Thibault La Roue Qui Tourne make them a winning combo for a roasted goose.

A classic prime rib will always have us reaching for a bold Cab. We recommend the rich fruit of award-winning Penley Mythology Cabernet Coonawarra, or for an Old World take, try Vivens Margeaux.

Celebrating the feast of Seven Fishes? Or maybe you just love lobster! Lobster and Condrieu is divine, a classic pairing for the ages. This tiny region in the Northern Rhone makes one of the world’s most beautiful white wines. Pick up a bottle today to elevate your feast to the height of luxury.

If you’re not sure what you’re having but you want to be prepared, grab our Holiday Survival Six Pack, featuring six awesome bottles and a Tipsy eco-tote bag all for $100. With a selection of three luscious reds hitting light, medium, and full-bodied, a sparkling white, a crisp white, and a delicate rosé, you’ll be ready for any dinner plans through the rest of the year!
