Bevvy of the Week – Christmas Wine and Food Pairings

Christmas Wine and Food Pairings

With Christmas only a few days away now, I would like to recommend a few grape varieties that will work well with your Christmas dinner.

Bevvy of the Week - Christmas Wine and Food Pairings

A lot of people stress about the wine they serve with Christmas dinner specially if they are cooking dinner for a number of people and want to impress. The main thing is to buy what you like. If you like a certain wine, chances are your guests will like it too, so don’t worry too much about it.

The following is just a quick guide to go by if you are still looking for the vino to serve up on the big day.

Bevvy of the Week - Christmas Wine and Food Pairings

Christmas Wine 

Starters : Something bubbly is always a great way to start off the meal and if you are serving fish or shellfish a Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc will go very nicely indeed. If you don’t want the bubbly a Sauvignon Blanc will do just as good.

Turkey & Ham : There are a few grape varieties that will work well with Turkey and Ham. Pinot Noir or Tempranillo for the red wine drinkers and a Chardonnay preferably from France for the white wine drinkers,

Spiced Beef : The red grape varieties in Shiraz will work best with the spiced beef. The spice and pepper from the Shiraz will help bring out its flavour.

The Pudding : A bottle of LBV Port will stand up to the richness of any Christmas pudding.
