If you are looking for ideas on wines to pair with your Easter dinner, here are some suggestions from our winemaker.

Illinois Sparkling Co.

  • Brut Ombré Rosé has bright, fresh, fruity aromas and flavors and is a wonderful pairing for a meal.
  • Pét Nat, like most rosé wines is a fruit friendly wine. It has a mouth-watering freshness, making you crave another sip.
  • Sec is a mouth-watering fruity sparkler. With a hint of sweetness, Sec is an amazing companion with food but is also delightful to sip on its own.
  • Demi Sec Rosé This sparkler pairs well with your chocolate bunny and cut-out cookies.

 

August Hill Winery

  • Vignoles is a semi-dry, light-bodied white wine that pairs wonderfully with ham.
  • Club Blanc (wine club members only) is a dry white wine and a good choice for those who prefer a dry wine.
  • Niagara is a favorite to pair with ham for those who prefer a sweet white.
  • Moscato pairs well with light desserts such as your lamb or bunny cake. it also pairs nicely with most flavors of jelly beans.
  • For those who only drink red wines, we recommend Berlyn (semi-dry), Chambourcin (dry), or Red Letter (semi-dry & wine club members only).
  • Rosés are fun and incredibly food friendly. Try LaBelle Rosé (dry) or Chambourcin Rosé (semi-dry).

 

How many bottles do I need?
A 750 mL bottle of wine holds about five glasses of wine (5 ounce servings). We recommend having at least two wine choices for your guests.

 

Happy Easter to all!
