It’s hard to believe that Easter is just around the corner, and I feel like we just celebrated Christmas. Lately we’ve experienced some fabulous warm weather here in Michigan and it seems like everyone is in the mood for spring cleaning. I love Easter! When families get together and celebrate. I love the sweet smell of the ham, baking in the oven and I especially look forward to the delicious chocolate bunnies and eggs that I get to munch on.
Typically fruity wines with a slight touch of sweetness pair deliciously with the sweet and salty richness of a ham.
Here are a couple of my favorite picks to pair with your Easter dinner.
J.P Chenet Sparkling Rose-$9.99- France
This one will definitely be placed on my Easter dinner table. It has a delicate touch of sweetness plenty of acidity and just the right amount of fruit to balance.
Parducci Small Lot Blend Pinot Noir 2014
If you prefer a red wine, the Parducci Small Lot Blend Pinot Noir is an excellent choice, with aromas of raspberry and strawberry with a hint of cedar on the finish, complementing the Easter dinner.
Dr Loosen Riesling 2015
The Dr Loosen Riesling has a delicate, sweetness with luscious acidity and balance, with flavors of apple, pear and quince.
Here at Nino’s we have a very large assortment of wines to pair with all your favorite dishes. I hope you found this helpful, Happy Easter, Simone
