Wines for the Texas Holidays

Two glasses of wine, one red and one white

Wow, it’s that time of year, when we get together for parties, family time and whatever occasion we can think of.  Lots of traditional dishes are cooked to share with others, so why not create the perfect paring with your meals and a great Texas wine.

Here are some great ideas of what to pair, thanks Go Texan for sharing these.

Turkey pairs well with dry white wines such as Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio. If you prefer your turkey smoked or grilled, sip on a dry, red wine, such as Pinot Noir or Shiraz.

If you’re dining on steak or prime rib, choose a red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon, Tempranillo or Sangiovese for the perfect match
Chicken or seafood
Chicken, wild-caught Gulf shrimp or fish, then you must try Chardonnay, Blanc du Bois, Chenin Blanc or Gewurztraminer to make the flavors stand out.
Wild game
Hunters will enjoy a Pinot Noir or Zinfandel with duck and quail, or Merlot or Syrah with wild boar.

While enjoying a chocolate dessert, pair with a  Port or Riesling.

Such great suggestions, now if it was just as easy to figure out which of the many great Texas Wines to choose from.  We use our partner wineries of Brennan Vineyards and Wedding Oak Winery

enjoy! Deb.
