THE BEST WINES FOR CHRISTMAS

Christmas is fast approaching; this means one thing, you will be thinking about the sips and bites you will be offering as part of your holiday spread. There will be numerous opportunities to pop a couple of bottles of wine. If it’s your duty to provide the festive sips at a Christmas dinner, or any other holiday gathering, you might be wondering what wine will be the best or how you will make the decision on which wines to serve. Not to worry, this write-up will clear those doubts. Below are some of our lists for the best wines for Christmas and get ready to enjoy the yuletide spirit.

RUINART BRUT BLANC DE BLANCS 

Since Christmas is a celebration, it means that no celebration can be complete without champagne. Ruinart Blanc de Blancs is a go-to for the holidays. The wine is super flexible at the table, with notes of golden apple, lemon curd, and almond. Most importantly, this brand of wine can be really enjoyed while unwrapping presents. 

PROSECCO

If there’s a Christmas brunch coming up, you can never go wrong with this Sparkling Italian wine. Prosecco does one thing; it leaves you open with plenty of options because your guest will have to enjoy the sweet tastes of white grape. Easily start your holiday season with a blend of honeydew, green apples, and creamy mineral textures. This brand of wine pairs well with fruits and baked goods covered in powdered sugar during brunch.

SANTA MARGHERITA CHIANTI CLASSICO RISERVA

The Christmas holiday remains a perfect time to enjoy a medium-bodied red wine. The Santa Margherita Chianti Classico Riserva is sophisticated, yet approachable, with seasonally proper notes of plums, cherries, and sweet spices. This wine can be served with both pork and beef, including any category of game meat. The more flavorful the dish, the better it will be for this wine.

OLEMA PINOT NOIR

You need to check this Pinot Noir from Olema if you crave for a slightly lighter red wine. This Sonoma County wine is a mixture of grapes from the Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley, which comprises the very best of both worlds. A typical Christmas dinner of ham or turkey is the perfect pairing for this wine. It has fragrant, bright, and filled with red fruits, including strawberry and cherry. It goes so well with those lighter meats, including any vegetarian dishes.

SCHRAMSBERG BLANC DE NOIRS 2015

Nothing speaks more of a Christmas holiday more than a bottle of sparkling wine. It makes everyone much more bearable, and the glowing lights from the tree reflecting off the glass full of bubbles give a special feeling. As it gets colder out, you will enjoy it more when you step outside and power your champagne with a Blanc de Noirs. It is entirely made with a red grape. The use of red grapes gives more structure to the wine.

EGLY-OURIET GRAND CRU BRUT 2009

Besides being with family, one of my top must-haves during the holiday gathering is a Champagne. It has a way of bringing happiness, warmth, friendliness, and hospitality to any get-together. Champagne is enjoyable while opening gifts during Christmas morning. It is generous with a beautiful freshness and refinement.

THE BOTTOM LINE

Choosing the ideal wine to serve at Christmas dinner may seem like a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. When pairing wine with a special Christmas meal, just concentrate on your main dish. Red wines are preferred for pork or beef while white wine pair nicely with ham, poultry, or even seafood. If you are seeking for a wine to pair with your family and friend, these selections are sure to please your holiday crowd.

The Art of Luxe – Incorporating Brass Wine Pins into Opulent Hospitality Design

In the world of high-end hospitality, every design detail matters. From the soaring ceiling heights to the carefully curated furnishings, these spaces are crafted to provide an unparalleled experience of indulgence and exclusivity. One distinctive element that is finding its way into the most opulent hotels, restaurants, and resorts? Brass wine pins. These stunning fixtures, designed to horizontally store and display bottles of fine wine, introduce a sense of old-world grandeur and sophistication into modern hospitality venues. With their warm, golden hues and timeless aesthetic, brass wine pins have an undeniable appeal for designers seeking to create environments that exude elegance and opulence. So what is it about brass wine pins that make them such a covetable addition to luxury spaces? For starters, they celebrate the art of winemaking and the cherished ritual of wine service in the most elevated settings. Whether showcasing labels or allowing bottles to rest with just their necks exposed, these racks put the spotlight on the world-class wine offerings that define a premier hospitality experience. But brass wine pins are more than just functional storage. They are sculpted metal pieces that introduce sculptural beauty into a space. Their gentle curves and polished finishes catch the eye while complementing a range of high-end materials like book-matched marble, antique mirrors, and hand-stitched leather wall panels. Truly a jewel-like accent in the hands of talented interior designers. Beyond their physical beauty, brass wine pins align perfectly with the move towards hotel and restaurant spaces that feel more like lavish private residences than commercial venues. These bespoke pieces instantly lend an air of intimacy and exclusivity to dining rooms, wine grottos, and even guest suites where top-shelf vino is available for in-room service. Spatially, brass wine pins can be integrated into virtually any area where wine service is to be highlighted – from back bar displays and temperature-controlled walk-in cellars to entire walls clad in the gilded racks. They can anchor a statement wall or be repeated in patterns that create a rhythm of visual interest. In an era where global ultra-high-net-worth individuals are driving demand for ever more opulent spaces, the addition of brass wine pins has emerged as a must for hospitality designers seeking to deliver an unmatched luxury experience. When executed with discerning attention to detail and material quality, these metallic racks elevate an already ultra-premium environment into the realm of world-class indulgence worthy of the most discriminating clientele.
