Eggs, ham, Easter bread, spring onions, Russian salad, lamb, radishes, asparagus, veal, fish – white or oily, regardless of what will be found on your Easter table and whether you are invited to lunch or you entertain your loved ones for Easter – we are sure that at some point you will need to buy wine.
Here are a few guidelines that can be useful in choosing the right wine.
The ideal start to the day whether it’s breakfast or brunch are bubbles. Whether you are looking for an ideal gift or you are the one preparing delicacies, sparkling wine is always a good start. Given that the traditional Easter table usually consists of hearty food, feel free to choose a sparkling wine with a bit more character. Rose wines are great and will pair nicely wilth eggs and ham as well as Easter bread (regardless of whether you start with salted or sweet).
Begin you lunch with an elegant white. Spring is here and nature thrives so farmers’ markets are full of gorgeous green vegetables. If you want to think out of the box and move away from the standard Malvasia or Graševina, offer a nice Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Sylvaner or Veltliner. They will fit any dish with spinach or asparagus.
We are quite sure you will have a roast for the grande finale of your Easter lunch. Whether it’s spring lamb, delicious porchetta, fine veal or poultry – you can go bold and serve orange wine. Although it may not be the first wine that comes to mind with these foods, orange wine does like a bit more serious food. If you opt for a more traditional approach, try a slightly different choice and offer a Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Lasina, or some creative cuvee.
