Planning a holiday dinner, yet unsure of where to start with wine pairings? While many varietals work well with each of the proteins below, here’s a quick cheat sheet to help you find a good match within any budget.
We like to pair beef with a bold red, such as Juggernaut Hillside Cabernet Sauvignon. This Clarksburg-produced wine is dense and velvety, with hints of vanilla and ripe black currents.
This holiday favorite plays nice with everything from a red Syrah to a white Riesling. Substance Chardonnay from Washington’s Columbia Valley has flavors of pear, apple and a hint of clove that will pair perfectly with your classic holiday entree.
There are endless possibilities with plant-based cuisine, but you can never go wrong bringing some sparkles to your festivities with Mumm Napa Brut Prestige. This sparkling white wine will pair great with any plant-based options.
Fish works best alongside white varietals like Pinot Gris or Chardonnay. The California-grown Rickshaw Sauvignon Blanc has bright acidity and solid minerality that will pair with any style of seafood.
