You walk into your neighborhood wine & spirit store and you are suddenly overwhelmed looking at hundreds of bottles, some wines have names you have never heard of before and can't even pronounce. How do you know which wine is going to be great with your special upcoming meal?
Luckily, I have tried each and every one of Deer Run's wines and truly consider myself well versed on selecting the best wine to go with your special occasion dinner. I know how daunting the list of wines can be when you have no knowledge of what the wine in the bottle will taste like. A label can be pretty, even on a bad bottle of wine. Fortunately, most wines are delicious and I have very rarely met a bottle of wine I have not loved enough to consume in its entirety. ;)
This post is intended to help you decide what wine to pair with your Easter dinner! Scott selected his top four wines that he feels will be the best paired with Easter dinner and below I have made a chart to help you decide for yourself! We wish you a very successful Easter dinner and can't wait to clink glasses with you again in person!
