Every delicious holiday dish deserves a clink-worthy companion. And we think you’ll find the perfect complement to your holiday spread—whether you’re keeping it small or going all out—among our wide selection of local and international wine.
We asked our knowledgeable wine buyers for their expert pairing suggestions for turkey, rib roast, ham, appetizers, and the best part of any meal: pie! Here are some of their top picks for your festive feast:
Because turkey is so versatile, you really can’t go wrong with your wine selection. For red wine lovers, our Partners in Crime and Overjoy Pinot Noirs are both great picks. If you prefer a white wine with your turkey, our Overjoy Pinot Gris or Overjoy Chardonnay are great options. No matter which wine you choose, you’re getting a local favorite!
When it comes to tender, flavorful beef, spring for medium- and full-bodied red wines with depth and complexity, like our Partners in Crime Organic Malbec, with grapes harvested from the Columbia Valley. Louis Martini Sonoma Cabernet brings dark chocolate and ripe cherry notes from California to the table, while Overjoy Tre Donne Nebbiolo pours slightly dry with a fruity-yet-earthy nose.
Pair your slightly sweet and oh-so-savory ham with a perfectly light- to medium-bodied aromatic white wine or fruit-forward red wine. Underwood Pinot Noir Nouveau is a dry, fresh wine perfect for such a feast—same goes for the floral and fruity Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau. For white wine lovers, Hugel Gentil Alsacian Riesling balances the spiciness, body, and vitality of other beloved varietals and blends in one delish bottle.
Who doesn’t love getting full on wine and finger food? Well-ripened cheese plates and oysters are a match made in heaven for a nice, crisp white wine, like Bella Notte Extra Dry Prosecco. Or, if you’d prefer to go all in on the cured meats, choose an easy-going red wine like Underwood Pinot Noir Nouveau and our Overjoy Brunelli Chianti from Oregon favorite Sokol Blosser are not to be missed.
Everyone’s favorite reasons for the season—sweet and tangy fruit pies, rich and creamy spiced pies, and all that flaky, buttery crust—pair perfectly with a lush port wine. For fruit pies, grab a bottle of the cherry-forward Krohn Ruby Port. If you’re digging into a spiced pie, a glass of smooth, jammy Krohn Tawny Port will treat you well.
