Easter will soon be upon us, which means delicious springtime meals such as ham, salads, macaroni, and lamb. Many of the most popular Easter dishes are foods we don’t often serve throughout the rest of the year. Because of this, it can be tricky to know which wines pair best with your main course for the holiday. Don’t worry though, we have a quick list of Easter wine pairings for all your favorite spring wines with some of this year’s most popular meals!
Ham, especially one with a sugary glaze, is very popular this time of year. We recommend serving it with either a sweet Riesling or Beaujolais.

Rack of Lamb
If you’re serving lamb on Easter Sunday, you have several wines to choose from. Two we are especially fond of with lamb are Petite Sirah and Pinot Noir.
Potatoes make a great side dish for most Easter meals. We recommend pairing them with either a Sauvignon Blanc or a Chardonnay.

Pork is another popular choice this spring! It pairs well with a variety of wines, but we find that Zinfandel or Syrah/Shiraz pair best with it.
39335 Seven Deadly Zins Zinfandel
This popular, spring side-dish can be tricky to pair! However, we suggest either a Pinot Gris or Gruner Veltliner.
Don’t overlook your salads! Many wines compliment green salads very well. A few of our favorites are Rosé and Vinho Verde.
