Celebrating Spring Holidays Together
Easter and Passover both fall in April this year, which means a great many people will be gathering with family and friends to celebrate, reflect, rejoice, and, of course, eat. Whether it will be your home filled with family or if you’re a guest at a friend’s table, if you’re observing these spring holidays, odds are you’ll need some wine. We’ve put together some fantastic recommendations for your holiday enjoyment.
Let us know how you like them!
Selections for Passover
Serving wine at a Seder is not only part of a well-planned, elegant meal, it’s also part of the ritual of Seder itself, making it all the more important that you plan ahead and purchase Kosher wines so that everyone can partake freely. Thankfully, today’s Kosher wines are much more refined than the grape-juice concoctions of yesteryear.
This year, try a bottle of Cantine del Borgo Reale’s 2009 Pinot Grigio for a Kosher, Mevushal white wine that will balance the traditionally heavier Seder offerings beautifully. With its lovely herbal bouquet and citrusy, fruity crispness, this is a bottle you’ll want on your table all year round.
Recommended Easter Wines
Whether Easter in your home means a day of reflection or hours spent hunting for eggs and munching on chocolate bunnies (or both!), it’s a joyous time for family to gather and celebrate together.
As you relax around the dinner table or visit after the children are in bed, open a bottle of the 2010 Brotherhood Winery Riesling. This festive blue bottle pairs well with the traditional ham Easter dinner, and its crisp pear and apple notes make it an excellent aperitif as well.
