Which wines to pair with Easter dinner?

Which wines to pair with Easter dinner

Easter Sunday is an example of a holiday that brings together many different people for celebrations and conversation over food. The perfect pairing for your Easter lunch or dinner is the Coravin, which will allow you to serve high-quality wines without sacrificing your collection. And if you’re new to wine, our handy pairing guide will help you discover what wines are best when paired with your traditional Easter dishes.

Ham with...

Remember, pairing food and wine eventually comes down to personal preference, but this is to help you and your guests get started. As Easter approaches, a classic ham is sure to make an appearance. When it comes to pairing wine with ham, you can’t go wrong with a Riesling or a Gewürztraminer. These white wines are great choices for those who prefer something lighter. For red wine lovers, Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, or Grenache can be the perfect match. For ham-based dishes, fruity and low-tannin red wines are the best choice. And if you want to impress your guests, consider serving a dry rosé, which has berry fruitiness, light tannins, and a dry finish that will complement the ham beautifully.

Lamb with...

You’re in for a fantastic Easter Sunday with incredible food, including this sweet and savory lamb roast. The meat is deliciously seasoned and cooked to juicy perfection. Accompany it with a bold red wine that expresses high levels of fruit, tannin and acidity like Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah or Rosé, which will complement its earthy and gamey flavors. Pairing lamb with wine doesn’t have to be difficult. A delicious meal goes hand-in-hand with the right kind of wine. Look for Rhone-style varieties that have peppery and smoky flavors that will complement the taste of the lamb.

Salmon with...

There is a beautiful relationship between fish and wine. Baked salmon is a classic Easter dish. A crisp white wine, such as a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio will pair well with the delicate flavors of baked salmon. These wines have bright acidity that enhances the flavor of salmon, making for a refreshing and satisfying pairing. A Chardonnay is also a good option if you prefer something more creamy and buttery. Sparkling wines or champagne can be festive and elegant for a special occasion like Easter brunch or dinner.

Mashed Potato with...

Sure, mashed potatoes are a great side dish, but they can also be the star of the show. Pair them with a dry rosé wine and a splash of chicken stock and you'll have delicious results. If you're serving savory potato dishes with meat, such as pork sausage, for example, you might want to pick a red wine like Malbec. Roasted vegetables, on the other hand, pair well with clean, crisp whites such as Grüner or Albariño. These wines provide a refreshing contrast to the roasted flavors of the vegetables.

Chocolate Easter eggs with...

Finally, Easter chocolate is a must-have for dessert. There is chocolate for every taste, and pairing it with wine can be a fun and delicious experience. Whether you prefer dark, milk, or white chocolate, there is a wine that can elevate your chocolate experience. On our blog, we have a detailed guide to wine and chocolate pairing, so you can find the perfect match for your taste. Chocolate has never tasted so good!

Now you have no excuses for not planning a perfect Easter food and wine pairing. All you have to do is pick up a Coravin device of your choice, decide what wines you’ll be serving, and then pour, serve and enjoy! Don’t forget to take pics to commemorate your fun event, and tag @Coravin on Instagram!
