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.

Pork Pie

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.

Crown Roast

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.

Prime Rib

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.
