*****Do I hear sleigh bells??

Let’s not forget that December is almost upon us and Christmas is just around the corner. What better time to snap up some yummy wines at tasty prices for your yuletide celebrations? Here are some recommendations which pair perfectly with those Christmassy meals:

With your turkey on the big day, make sure you enjoy it with a Riesling, Chenin Blanc or even an oaked Chardonnay and if you go for a nice joint of beef instead, it can only be eaten with a Bordeaux, Rioja or Barolo/Barbaresco. After the main course, a Christmas pudding can’t go without a glass of Sauternes and for cheeses, bring out the port, New Word reds or Jurancon. 

The Ideal Christmas Gifts  

Thinking of treating those around you? Here are also some tips for the perfect pressie:

Magnums
Champagnes (white & pink)
Port or Sweet Wines
Special Occasion bottles – Grand Cru Bordeaux, Premier Cru Burgundy or Gran Reserva Rioja.
