There's enough to think about during the holiday season.
Scheduling, shopping, decorating, decoding, gifting, gathering, friends, family, feasting... As the clock counts down to Christmas Day, let us take away one thing to think about: wine for the holiday table. Instead of stressing about the perfect wine(s) to serve with your feast (of course, there is no such wine), do what we do. Open a few bottles, put them on the holiday table, and let people pick and choose for themselves. Sacrilege? Not at all. Considering all the different flavours on the table, and the different personalities around the table, its genius to select a few different bottles that are classically food-friendly and seasonally appropriate. You needn't select all ten (though if you do, invite us over please). Pick one or two whites, a dry rosé and/or a light red or two, plus a fizz to start and a sweet wine to finish. The wines will invite conversation and facilitate festivities. It's one less thing for you to think about, and more for you to enjoy. Availability varies between government and private wine shops so be sure to engage with staff for bests results and if they don't have any of our picks, giving a name will set them off in the right direction. Happy Holidays.
