If you’re planning a big event for the holiday season, you should definitely be looking at wine pairings. From small, casual affairs to larger, full-family get-togethers, you can bring a lot to the table by properly pairing your meals with flavorful wines. Whether you’re going traditional with roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, and gravy or you’re going exotic with curries, candied vegetables, and spice-laden desserts, you can be confident that the perfect wine won’t just complement your meal, it will elevate it. In today’s post, we’re going to walk through a handful of the most delicious wines that you can pair with your holiday meals.

Chardonnay

When you’re looking to pair your buttery side dishes with a great wine, Chardonnay is the best option. Full-bodied with oaky notes, Chadonnay works with the creaminess and butteriness of mashed potatoes, roasted carrots, and other “heavy” side dishes.

Pinot Noir

A great way to kick off any meal, Pinot Noir features a strong, fruity flavor that pairs well with traditional holiday food. From turkey and chicken to roast beef and ham, its tart, acidic flavor perfectly balances the hearty, earthy flavors of our favorite meat dishes.

Sauvignon Blanc

If you’re going exotic for the holiday, you should consider Sauvignon Blanc. A refreshing, fruity wine that pairs well with mild curries and other spice-heavy dishes, it is well-suited to elevate the aromatic flavors of Indian and Mexican dishes.
