What Wine Should I Pair With My...


Smoked turkey? Standing rib roast? In-laws? Well, this question is one that we hear all the time in our wine aisles, but especially now as we all get ready to celebrate the family, friends, and food in our lives. 

So to help you find the holiday spirit that will raise everyone's spirits, we asked our wine team for a few highlights.
  • Bellenda Prosecco - Made in small batches by a family that has been in the winemaking business since Napoleon's occupation of Veneto. Rated 90 points by Wine & Spirits magazine. Ideal with prosciutto, cheeses, and shrimp.
  • Zuccardi "A Series" Malbec - An intense dark purple, with plum and dried-fig aromas makes the Zuccardi family’s a wine begging for turkey, beef, or roasted vegetables. The Central Market exclusive is also rated 90 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
  • Santa Barbara Winery Pinot Noir - This earthy red produced by the Lafond winemaking family is also a Central Market exclusive just waiting to complement traditional holiday foods. Enjoy with turkey, duck, pheasant or lamb.
  • Bosio Gavi - Produced by Luca Bosio, this great Italian white wine from Piedmont is the perfect alternative to Pinot Grigio. It’s a perfect pairing for seafood, salads, or simply by itself.
  • Bon Anno Chardonnay - Meaning "good year," Bon Anno heralds the celebration of good times, and is a fortuitous play on Napa Valley Vintner Matthew Bonnano’s last name. Pair this 100% Carneros region Chardonnay with roast chicken or grilled seafood.
  • Foley Johnson Napa Cabernet - This Napa Valley Cab is predominantly Cabernet (92%) with small amounts of Syrah, Malbec, Merlot, and Petit Verdot and perfect for a myriad of holiday foods. You’ll find aromas of sweet spice, vanilla, and ripe red cherry that carry through the palate.
  • Cross River Sauvignon Blanc -  If you like Kim Crawford, then you'll love this Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand, which balances well with lighter seafood and raw vegetables.
  • Domaine Fourrey Chablis -  Prized for its lively nose and lingering flavor, this fresh, clean, well-balanced Chablis is produced by the fourth generation of the Fourrey family in Northern Burgundy. This fresh, clean Chablis has a good balance, lively nose, lingering flavor, and is great on its own as an aperitif.
  • Domaine Laroque Cabernet Franc -  From an historical estate in the ancient Carcassonne region, this quaffable wine made from 100% Cabernet Franc combines that varietal’s characteristics with the lively fruitiness of wines from the south of France. Fire up the grill and pair this red with grilled lamb chops.
  • Domaine des Carteresses Tavel -  A unique Rhone Valley rosé, from the only winery to be opened by a President of the Republic (Albert Lebrun, 1938), that is best highlighted when paired with dry, mild cheeses.
With these fine suggestions we raise a glass to your and yours this holiday season. Cheers!
