Springtime is here! So, it’s only appropriate that we start talking about some of our favorite wine pairings for the season ahead -- including the wines we’ll be enjoying for upcoming holidays and patio season.
Lot 197 Prosecco Rosé - Pairs with Brunch and Spring Weather
Producers in Italy have been making sparkling rosé for a long time, but until 2021 they hadn't been able to label these wines with the “Prosecco” name. New regulations in Italy, however, have opened up the opportunity for labeling wines Prosecco Rosé, and are now allowing producers to blend the traditional Glera grape with up to 10-15% Pinot Noir to make their Prosecco Rosés.
This vivacious and aromatic sparkler is perfect for any occasion, but it’s especially perfect for brunching on Easter and throughout the spring. Whether you’re sipping alongside charcuterie or pairing this effervescent wine with the whole Easter spread, it’s the perfect pairing wine and one of our faves!
Lot 23 Old Vine Malbec - Pairs with Lamb, Red Meat Dishes and "Asados"
Malbec is an excellent choice for pairing with many of the red meat dishes you'll find during the upcoming holidays. And, our tried and true, Lot 23 Old Vine Malbec, from the high elevations of Mendoza, Argentina is our go-to. You may have heard of BBQs but in South America, the name for a traditional barbecue is called an "Asado," where friends gather and enjoy a wide selection of grilled meats like chorizos, skirt steaks, blood sausages and more over a charcoal or wood fire brick-built grill. We believe Old Vine Malbec was specifically made for Asado occasions.
Lot 42 Pinot Grigio - pairs with Kitchen Prep 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? This Easter, try Lot 42 Pinot Grigio paired with deviled eggs, a classic Easter Sunday dish.
Lot 126 Sancerre - Pairs with Roasted Vegetables and Salad Topped with Goat Cheese
Our French Sauvignon Blanc, Lot 126 Sancerre, is an absolute fan favorite at this time of the year, and for good reason! Balanced and crisp, this is a wine destined for the finest tables, but happiest among a humble goat cheese topped salad and other springtime vegetable dishes.
Lot 179 Pinot Noir - Pairs with the Spread
A light red to pair with the whole spread. Pinot Noir is one of our quintessential red food wines. As versatile and drinkable as it is, you really can’t go wrong when bringing Pinot Noir to the Easter or Passover table. So while you’re going from apps to the main course and everything in-between, why not find the red that will do the trick with them all.
