24 Wines of Christmas - week 1





We're feeling festive at CellarVie Wines, it being the 1st of December.  We've already scoffed the chocolate from the first window in the advent calendar and Jon is getting creative with tinsel... don't ask about the baubles.
 
Anyway, moving on, the team are all excited about the run up to the big day, so we have created a special food and wine matching for the next twenty-four days, our idea being to come up with "24 wines of Christmas" which we love and which we hope will help and inspire you this Christmas.
 
Some recipes are not necessarily all that festive but we have tried them out and matched them with wines from the CellarVie range, so all you have to do is place your order, put on your pinny and get creative.  Just make sure you check the food & wine pages of the blog for the full recipes and feedback on what you thought of the combination.
 
So why not have a look at our 1st Day of Christmas recipe or feel free to tell us your favourite wine and food matches are in general?

The Easter Challenge: Matching Curry with Wine


Lamb is the traditional choice for your Easter Sunday lunch, and with good reason too. Sumptuous, juicy and seasonal, it’s a delicious meat to choose and so spoil your loved ones and family on this special Sunday with a lamb showstopper. For the more adventurous, I’m urging you to stray from the traditional and try something different. I slow-cooked a curried lamb shank over the weekend, and it was fantastic.

The Best Wine Pairings for Lamb: CellarVie vs The Experts


A dish as wonderfully tender as lamb is hugely popular in spring and a common choice for a Sunday lunch, especially over the long Easter weekend. One of the most flexible of meats when it comes to wine pairing, it is normally the accompanying sauces that dictate the wine choice rather the meat itself. For a traditional roast lamb, however, it is the deliciously tender meat that plays centre stage at the table. Lamb’s modest flavour and supple juiciness lends itself very nicely to a smooth, low-tannin style of wine.
