Easter Wine Pairings

April 11, 2017
(0) Comments on this post

It’s hard to believe that Easter is just around the corner, and I feel like we just celebrated Christmas. Lately we’ve experienced some fabulous warm weather here in Michigan and it seems like everyone is in the mood for spring cleaning. I love Easter! When families get together and celebrate. I love the sweet smell of the ham, baking in the oven and I especially look forward to the delicious chocolate bunnies and eggs that I get to munch on.

Typically fruity wines with a slight touch of sweetness pair deliciously with the sweet and salty richness of a ham.

Here are a couple of my favorite picks to pair with your Easter dinner.


J.P Chenet Sparkling Rose-$9.99- France

J.P Rose

This one will definitely be placed on my Easter dinner table. It has a delicate touch of sweetness plenty of acidity and just the right amount of fruit to balance.

Parducci Small Lot Blend Pinot Noir 2014

Parducci 2014 Pinot Noir

If you prefer a red wine, the Parducci Small Lot Blend Pinot Noir is an excellent choice, with aromas of raspberry and strawberry with a hint of cedar on the finish, complementing the Easter dinner.

Dr Loosen Riesling 2015

DR Riesling 2015

The Dr Loosen Riesling has a delicate, sweetness with luscious acidity and balance, with flavors of apple, pear and quince.


Here at Nino’s we have a very large assortment of wines to pair with all your favorite dishes.
I hope you found this helpful,
Happy Easter,
