Christmas Dinner Food and Wine

It has been awhile since I have posted to the blog. Today’s post is about food and wine – my two favorite subjects.  Specifically, what wine to serve with Christmas dinner  in particular Turkey and Ham. The wines are suggestions. You can always serve your favorite wine. Without going into detail, here are the wines I suggest. All of them are medium or lower priced.

With appetizers, I suggest either a Prosecco and for the sweeter palate a Moscato. All are very drinkable and less expensive then Champagne.

For white wines, I suggest three. In simple terms, I chose these because of the acidity and sweetness.
  • Riesling – Semi sweet
  • Sauvignon Blanc – California not New Zealand
  • Pinot Grigio – Goes with all foods

Red wines:
  • Pinot Noir – My favorite and I prefer Oregon, it has more body.
  • Zinfandel – Adds a little spice. Make sure it is Old Vine.
  • Barbera di Asti (Italy) – Light tannin and high acidity.
