Best Easter food and wine pairings
Whether you’re having an Easter brunch or afternoon Easter feast, we’ve got the best wine selections to pair with your Easter recipes.
Mionetto Prosecco Brut ($12)
A perfect white bubbly to sip for Easter, Mionetto's Prosecco is an easy-drinking, fruit-forward wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or throughout a meal. It has a special affinity for lighter fare. We like it paired with a bright flavored salads.
Little Black Dress Riesling ($10)
A new varietal from Little Black Dress Wines, the LBD Riesling is an excellent wine for egg-based Easter recipes, such as quiche. This crisp, aromatic white wine will be available right before Easter and will quickly become one of your favorite spring and summer wines.
Golan Heights Gilgal Chardonnay 2007 ($13)
Made entirely of Chardonnay grapes in Golan Heights, this non-wooded Israeli wine features natural fruit characters that pair well with poultry, seafood, pasta with light creamy sauces, and mild cheeses. This Chardonnay is also kosher.
Luce Della Vite Toscana 2007 ($92)
This red Italian wine is a blend of Merlot and Sangiovese exuding the aroma of dark fruit, herbs and spice with a supple, velvety mouth feel, balanced with vibrant fruit flavors. The 2007 vintage, which was scored 95 by Wine Spectator magazine, is a delicious pairing for roasted meats and aged cheeses. Though in the pricey range, it is the perfect wine to serve for special occasions, such as Easter.
Duca del Frassino Cabernet Corvina ($20)
With its rich, lush fruit flavors, this robust Italian wine is ideal for large Easter feasts featuring red meats or entrees with bold flavors. Duca's wines are packaged in eco-friendly boxes, each box the equivalent of four bottles of wine. If you've turned up your nose to boxed wines, Duca's impressive taste will change your mind.
Voga Italia Moscato ($11)
A luscious dessert wine, the VOGA Moscato lingers on your palate letting the rich natural grape flavors dance across your tongue. Though it is deliciously sweet enough to sip savoringly after your Easter feast as dessert, it pairs well with fruit desserts or light cakes.
