With the holidays just around the corner, I wanted to pass along some of my favorite ways to pair classic Thanksgiving and holiday dishes with a variety of wine varietals for fall on behalf of Italian wine brand, Santa Margherita.
From charcuterie boards to savory entrees and sweet desserts, Santa Margherita has a wine to perfectly pair with every holiday dish and bring out the seasonal flavors we love. More information on our varietals below!
Are you currently working on any pieces where Santa Margherita might be a fit? If so, I’d be happy to provide you with samples, high-res imagery, recipes for these tasty dishes, or anything else you may need.
Charcuterie Board // Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio ($24.99)
Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio is clean and dry with a flavorful personality, making it ideal to pair with this savory mushroom dish. The diverse flavors and texture of the meats, cheeses, and fruits emphasize the fruity flavors in this classic wine.
Rosemary Chicken with Cranberries // Santa Margherita Sparkling Rosé ($29.99)
This pale pink wine is the perfect accompaniment for your food explorations, featuring a pink hue that introduces a subtle succession of floral fragrances lifted by white fruits and delicate hints of red berry fruits, while offering a versatile drinking experience.
Pork with Tart Balsamic Cherries // Santa Margherita Chianti Classico Riserva ($24.99)
This ruby colored wine, in particular, makes a perfect pairing with game meat through its vigorous tannins and fresh acidity, followed by an aroma of forest fruits and sweet spice against a backdrop of herbs and autumn leaves.
The crisp, tart taste of the peach, sweetness of the honey, and ripe flavor of the goat cheese perfectly complement the fruity flavors and aromas in this sparkling wine, allowing the vibrant bubbles to resonate with every sip.
