The beauty of sparkling wines is that you can pair them with just about any food. Bubbly is a champion when it comes to food pairing because the natural acidity in a good sparkler helps to brighten the flavors. Whether you are celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Year’s, or some other holiday tradition, a bottle of bubbly means it is time for the party to start.
Here are some of our favorite selections to pair with your next holiday meal.
