Top 5 Wines for Easter

Easter dinner, with its rich, salty ham, can be a difficult meal with which to match a wine. Some reds will be too tannic, and some whites can be too buttery. Typically, light, fruity and crisp wines work well.

Here are our top 5 wine choices for your Easter dinner:

CALIFORNIA MOSCATO (white)
Produced from the widely popular Muscat varietal, this delightfully sweet white balances juicy peach and tropical fruit flavors with a refreshing finish.

COLUMBIA VALLEY WASHINGTON RIESLING (white)
Delicate yet complex, this off-dry Riesling offers pronounced floral aromas and flavors of peach and apricot with a refreshing finish.

GRENACHE ROSE’ (blush)
An exceptional, refreshing, light and crisp medium-bodied wine. Low in tannins and a little higher in alcohol.
SOUTH AFRICAN PINOTAGE (red)
Earthy, with rich red berry notes, this medium-bodied varietal was created in South Africa by blending light, fruity Pinot Noir with robust, spicy Cinsault.
FIESTA RED (red)
Bright, zesty, Seville Orange is perfectly balanced by tangy red fruit flavors in this refreshingly sweet light wine.
