Remember the guide to pairing wine with Halloween candy that recommended what to drink when you raided your kids’ candy bag? The creator of the guide, Vivino, has another wine pairing guide, this time for holiday pies.
As you’re choosing wines for Christmas dinner and other holiday events over the next few weeks, this guide may come in handy. Here, I’ve linked to some of the sustainable wines that I might choose to go with a certain kind of pie.
Sauvignon Blanc for key lime pie
Riesling for apple pie
Chardonnay for pumpkin pie
Champagne/sparkling wine for apple crumble
Pinot Noir for peach pie
Rose for lemon meringue
Merlot for chocolate cream pie
Petite Sirah for blueberry pie
- Bogle Vineyards Petite Sirah - I’ve never written about this wine here on MNN, but it’s one I enjoy, and it is from a sustainable vineyard.
Syrah for cherry pie
- Bonterra’s Biodynamic The Butler (or, try Bonterra’s Organically Grown Syrah)
Muscat/Muscato for pecan pie
- Bocchino Sori Dei Fiori Moscato D'asti - I haven't written about this wine, either, but I recently went to a tasting of Moscato D'asti wines from Italy and this wine is sweet and well balanced, making it (and other Moscato D'asti wines) a good pairing for something as sweet as a pecan pie.
