Elevate your Easter feast: Perfect wine pairings for every palate! Springtime is in full bloom and Easter is just around the corner!

As all of us here at Wine and the Wood prepare to gather with loved ones over the festive celebrations, there’s one thing that is sure to elevate our Easter feasts: the perfect wine pairing. Whether you’re hosting a delightful brunch, a traditional Sunday roast or simply indulging into sweet treats over the weekend, we’ve got you covered with the ultimate guide to pairing wines with your Easter spreads! And don’t worry, we have everything you could possibly need here at Wine and the Wood to complete your table at Easter.

One for the red wine enthusiasts. For those hearty Easter roasts or grilled lamb dishes, a robust red wine is the perfect companion - opt for a rich and velvety Cabernet Sauvignon or a smooth Merlot. The bold flavours of these reds, complement the savoury goodness of roast lamb, bringing out the best in each bite. If you’re serving up a vegetarian dish, like roasted root vegetables or mushroom wellington, a medium-bodied Pinot Noir offer a great balance of fruitiness and earthiness.

For those that love a white wine. If your Easter table features a lighter spread like seafood or spring salads, a crisp and refreshing white wine is a must-have. Reach for a vibrant Sauvignon Blanc, which with its zesty citrus notes, boasts the flavours of grilled fish or a shrimp or prawn cocktail. Alternatively, a classic Chardonnay brings buttery richness to creamy pasta dishes or roasted chicken, making it a versatile choice for any Easter gathering. The crispness of a white wine will also enhance all the different flavours in a salad to complement the rest of your meal.

Did someone say rosé? Embrace the mood of Spring with a glass of blush-coloured rosé. This delicate wine is a crowd-pleaser, offering the best of both worlds with its light and fruity profile. Pair a dry rosé with a charcuterie board or smoked salmon canapés for a sophisticated starter. For the main course, you could try a sweeter rosé with honey-glazed ham or barbeque ribs, as the hint of sweetness, embraces the smoky flavour of the meat.

No Easter celebration is complete without a touch of sparkle! Pop-open a bottle of bubbly to add a festive touch to your festivities. Whether you’re serving brunch favourites like eggs benedict or decadent desserts like lemon meringue pie, a dry sparkling wine like prosecco or champagne is the perfect match. Its excitement cleanses the palate between bites, ensuring every dish shines.
