With the first day of Spring right around the corner, we’ll be setting the Easter dinner table sooner than you might think! So, it’s only appropriate that we start talking about some of our favorite wine pairings that we’ll be enjoying this upcoming Easter Sunday.
Lot 141 Organic Prosecco paired with Easter brunch and mimosas
Our newest wine, and our very first organic wine, is here just in time for Easter… introducing our brand-new Prosecco made from organic grapes! We couldn’t think of a better time to release this dry, fresh and crisp Italian sparkler. It’s perfect for brunching on Easter and throughout the Spring. Whether you’re adding a splash of OJ for a mimosa, sipping alongside freshly sliced prosciutto and other charcuterie or pairing this effervescent wine with the whole Easter spread, it’s the perfect pairing wine! Plus, once you pop this bubbly we guarantee your fun family members will be sipping right along with you… and who doesn’t want to be a part of that sparkling squad? #SquadGoals am I right?
Lot 42 Pinot Grigio paired with kitchen duties and deviled eggs
If you’re anything like us, you like to cook with wine. Sometimes you even add it to the food. Lot 42 Pinot Grigio from Trentino, Italy is one of our favorite kitchen companions – for cooking and, well, sipping away! They say “A watched pot never boils,” but they never said anything’s wrong with sipping on a perfectly dry white wine while you’re waiting for those bubbles to boil, right?! For this Easter, try Lot 42 Pinot Grigio paired with deviled eggs, a classic Easter Sunday dish.
Lot 66 Riesling paired with Ham
The salty, sweet nature of your Easter ham begs for something cool, fruity and slightly sweet itself; and Riesling is just the ticket. This wine is light-bodied and intensely flavored with just enough tart to match the honey glaze of your main course. Don’t be afraid of Riesling’s sweetness, though. It will not seem as tangy when paired with ham. Plus, its characteristic freshness and stone fruit aromas make drinking it like biting into a refreshingly juicy nectarine.
Lot 132 Provence Rosé paired with roasted vegetables and salad topped with goat cheese
Spring showers means it’s time to stop and smell the rosé! We recently released the new 2017 vintage of our Reserve Provence Rosé and we can’t wait to bring it to the Easter table. The wine is dry and bright with juicy fruit and an easy-going demeanor. It’s hard to find a food pairing that doesn’t work with this rosé, but roasted vegetables and salads topped with goat cheese pairs up particularly well.
Lot 143 Cotes du Rhone paired with Lamb or Beef
Red meats like beef and lamb need boldly flavored, structured wines to pair with. Lot 143 Cotes du Rhone from our Classic Series offers just that. Sipping the wine reveals layers of mouth-filling dark fruit and spice, dried herbs and anise, and a punch of freshness that transforms into a cool, peppery finish. This savory wine will fit right in with your meat course; not to mention, it’s a phenomenal value and the perfect way to get a taste of what the classic Rhone region is all about.
Lot 134 Moscato d’Asti paired with Peeps and Jelly Beans
There’s absolutely no denying that everyone gets a sweet-tooth around Easter. It’s all about the chocolate rabbits, Peeps and Jelly Beans… don’t even get me started on those Cadbury Crème Eggs. Our Lot 134 Moscato d’Asti is a crisp, balanced and tastefully sweet Moscato that has a light fizz and perfumed aromas that can keep up with all of the Easter treats to come. The perfect pair for the sweeter side of Easter.
Lot 27 Barbera d’Alba the Italian Red that pairs with the spread…
Lot 27 Barbera is one of our quintessential red food wines. Textured, fresh and vibrant, Barbera can harmonize with many different foods. As versatile and drinkable as it is, you really can’t go wrong when bringing Barbera to the Easter table. So, while you’re going from ham, to lamb and everything in between, why not find the red that will do the trick next to them all.
