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
Our newest sparkling wine couldn't have arrived at a better time… introducing 90+ Cellars Prosecco Rosé! Producers in Italy have been making sparkling rosé for a long time, but until recently they haven’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 new faves!
Lot 144 Chianti - Pairs with Lamb and Red Meat Dishes
Chianti is an excellent choice for pairing with many of the red meat dishes you'll find during the upcoming holidays. And, Lot 144 Chianti from our Classic Series is our go to. Sipping the wine showcases a texture that balances the naturally high acidity of Sangiovese with its ripe red fruit flavors and firm tannins. Lot 162 Cotes du Rhone is another savory wine that will fit right in with the 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 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
We’re very excited to have Lot 126 Sancerre back with a new vintage and new and improved look! This French Sauvignon Blanc is one of our most sought-after wines, 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.
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.
