Elevate Your Easter Dinner: Wine Pairing Ideas for Every Course

As Easter approaches, thoughts turn to gathering with loved ones and enjoying a delicious feast. Whether you're planning a traditional Easter dinner or putting a modern twist on the menu, one thing is certain: the right wine can elevate the flavors of your meal to new heights. From starters to desserts, here are some wine pairing ideas to make your Easter dinner an unforgettable culinary experience.


1. Deviled Eggs:

  • Wine Pairing: Crisp and refreshing sparkling wine such as Prosecco or Champagne. The effervescence and acidity will cleanse the palate and enhance the richness of the eggs.

2. Spring Salad:

  • Wine Pairing: A light-bodied white wine like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. These wines offer citrusy notes and vibrant acidity that beautifully complement the freshness of the salad greens and vinaigrette.

Main Course:

3. Roast Leg of Lamb:

  • Wine Pairing: Opt for a medium to full-bodied red wine such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot. Their robust flavors and firm tannins pair wonderfully with the richness of the lamb while adding depth to each bite.

4. Honey Glazed Ham:

  • Wine Pairing: Choose a slightly sweet white wine like Riesling or Gewürztraminer. The hint of sweetness in these wines complements the honey glaze on the ham, while their acidity balances the richness of the meat.

5. Herb-Roasted Chicken:

  • Wine Pairing: For a versatile pairing, go with a light to medium-bodied white wine such as Chardonnay or Viognier. These wines offer enough acidity to cut through the richness of the chicken while enhancing its herbal flavors.

Side Dishes:

6. Asparagus with Hollandaise Sauce:

  • Wine Pairing: Choose a crisp and herbaceous white wine such as Sauvignon Blanc or Grüner Veltliner. The wine's herbal notes will complement the asparagus, while its acidity will cut through the richness of the hollandaise sauce.

7. Roasted Root Vegetables:

  • Wine Pairing: Pair with a medium-bodied red wine like Pinot Noir or Grenache. Their earthy undertones complement the flavors of the roasted vegetables, while their acidity adds brightness to the dish.


8. Carrot Cake:

  • Wine Pairing: Opt for a sweet white wine such as late-harvest Riesling or Moscato d'Asti. These wines echo the cake's sweetness and spice, creating a harmonious balance of flavors.

9. Lemon Tart:

  • Wine Pairing: Serve with a light and zesty dessert wine like Muscat or Vin Santo. The wine's citrusy notes will mirror the tartness of the lemon while providing a refreshing finish to the meal.
