This might be last minute but just in case you need a nudge here are a couple of suggestions for choosing a wine for Easter dinner, there’s still time for wine selecting.
If you are having brunch start off with orange juice for everyone. For the adults add sparkling wine and a dash of Grand Marnier or triple sec for a festive Mimosa.
For the children add sparkling water or seltzer to their glass of orange juice. Drop in a cherry or slice of orange and they will feel special too.
The affordable Prosecco is a good choice for the sparkling wine. It’s a nice way to start the day and toast Spring! finally.
WINE WITH DINNER
A popular main course for Easter is ham which often has a sweet glaze topping. For a white wine choose a Riesling and if you would also like to serve a red wine choose the food-friendly Pinot Noir.
Dry Rosé wine is also a food friendly choice for Easter dinner. Rosé is available in several styles — dry, semi-dry, and sweet — so you can choose a style for each course you will be serving.
… and DESSERT
Everyone loves dessert. An affordably priced late harvest Riesling from Washington’s Columbia Valley is moderately sweet with tropical fruit flavors that will go well with a cheese plate of smoked Gouda or fresh goat cheese or fresh fruit tarts and apple pie.
Another suggestion is Moscato d’Asti to serve with desserts. TIP: When serving dessert choose a wine that is as sweet, or sweeter than the dessert.
