Wines for Easter Dinner

Whites for hams, reds for lambs




Spotlight on Spiral Ham

Apricot Brown Sugar Ham

Try a slightly sweet German Riesling with this one. And not just because this recipe was submitted by Roz21, whose hometown in Germany's Rheinland-Pfalz region is among the world capitals of Riesling! A German Riesling paired with a salty, slightly sweet ham can be one of those rare matches where all the stars align upon grateful taste buds. Incidentally, Roz21 is now living in Idaho, a newcomer but no slouch at making crisp, minerally Rieslings! 


Other Top Baked Ham Recipes

Pour Riesling with these baked hams, as well. Along with Germany and Idaho, Washington, Alsace (France), and Australia are also making great Rieslings. You could also go with a Gewurztraminer from Alsace. If you want red, try a lighter kind, like Beaujolais. 


Favorite Easter Lamb Recipes

Cabernet Sauvignon is often too tannic and powerful, bowling over lighter dishes. So on those special occasions when dinner means steak or lamb, go ahead and reach for it--one sip, and you'll remember why Cab is considered the king of wines. With these recipes, lamb meets up with rosemary, a very red wine-friendly herb.


Got Leftovers?

Chardonnay and sparkling wines go great with eggs. Try a less oaky style of chard with these recipes or go festive with some bubbly.

I would like to thank Nancy Clancy for her "Easter Deviled Egg" recipe. It is such a great idea and I shared this recipe with my mother and some of the ladies in my church ~ Again, thanks to Nancy Clancy for this creative and great idea ~ God bless ~ Robin Burns ~
