Why does food and wine matching seem so difficult, so fraught with opportunity to miss the mark? It’s simple really: we insist on reinventing the wheel, overlooking time-tested pairings that are always spot-on in favor of hit-or-miss improvisations.
Our Wine Team offers their top picks for the wines they’re most excited to give this holiday season.
As the seasons change we look forward to some of our most decadently delicious cheeses of the year. The perfect pair for these lavish, richly-textured delights is the biscuity, toasted depth of Montbourgeau Crémant du Jura.
Less known than Barolo and Barbaresco, the Alto-Piemonte (Upper Piemonte) is home to some equally amazing Nebbiolo wines. The Vallana family’s vineyard produces particularly elegant and charming bottles.
Crafted by the Courrèges family on France’s “Île de Beauté,” this Corsican red wine is wonderful with seared lamb chops and roasted Brussels sprouts.
We love this highly drinkable wine from the town of Le Pradet, in southern Provence!
