Christmas Dinner is one of the most highly anticipated meals of the year! When planning your holiday dinner, don’t stress over the wine, use this list to help you determine the right bottle for each dish. While there are probably some of your classic favorites on the list, don’t be afraid to try something new this year!
Get your holiday meal off to the right start with a delightful Aperitif wine! You can never go wrong with a classic Brut or Rose Champagne!
Riesling is a popular wine to pair with ham as its sweetness will meld nicely with most ham glazes. However, sparkling white or regular rosé wine can also complement ham.
Turkey can be paired with so many wines! However, we recommend sticking to either a light red wine, such as Pinot Noir, or a Chardonnay.
Goose pairs best with a wine that can help cut through the fattiness with a little acid. Try a Sauvignon Blanc or a Vouvray.
A red wine without much for tannins makes a great match for this traditional dish. Bordeaux and Cote du Rhone both pair excellently with pork pie.
A fabulous roast is best paired with a heartier red wine. We love both Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon with this dish.
Potatoes are a common and popular side dish at many holiday dinners. While it can be tricky to pair them with wine, we find they do best with Merlot and Chardonnay.
It is no surprise that it pairs best with red wine! While you can’t go wrong with most reds, we recommend either a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Châteauneuf du Pape.
