Holiday Wine Pairings
Whether you’re looking for the ideal accompaniment to your Holiday Filet or a nice aperitif to add some holiday sparkle to your celebration, Stewart’s has a nice selection of this season’s best wines!
To get the celebration started (on its own or with Hors d’ Oeuvres):
The holidays are all about celebrating with friends and family and what better way to add cheer to the season than with first-rate bubbly. Add some sparkle to your holidays! (Of course we have Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label Brut on special – CT’s Lowest Price – while supplies last as well, but the following are Sparklers not to overlook this season):
Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs Napa Valley Brut
Barons de Rothschild Brut Champagne
Lallier Grand Cru Brut Champagne
Le Mesnil Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut
Perrier Jouet Champagne Grand Brut
Mionetto Superiore Prosecco Valdobbiadene
For your Filet:
What pairs best with beef tenderoin – some say Merlot, some say Burgundy, we say you it’s hard to go wrong with a fantastic Cabernet or even a wonderful 2010 Barolo! And though our shelves are stocked with so many superb choices, we’ve boiled it down to a few stellar picks:
For your Holiday Ham
Whether you prefer to match your holiday spiral ham with a nice chilled California Chardonnay or a tasty Pinot Noir (slightly chilled), these two wonderful choices are sure to delight:
Whether you’re serving Roast Leg of Lamb or a Roasted Rack of Lamb, enjoy with a fantastic Napa Valley Zinfandel Blend, a classic Bordeaux, an earthy Chianti Classico, or a flavorful Reserva Rioja.
Roast Turkey, Chicken or Goose
Again we will choose simplicity instead of throwing out too many choices – so here we’ll opt for Oregon Pinot Gris and Oregon Pinot Noir. But for you beer drinkers a Chimay is a great choice (especially with Goose).
And of course for the lighter side of the holidays we have some superb Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc:
