Cocktail Hour: Holiday Entertaining

Guest blog by Clark Trim, Owner, Colonial Wines and Spirits

During December, we’re asked these questions:

  • What one red and one white wine pairs well with Christmas dinner?
  • What good quality, inexpensive wines do you recommend for gifts?

Here are our answers – Cheers + Happy Holidays!


Red – Block Nine Caiden’s Vineyards Pinot Noir
beautifully long + rich in ripe cherry and berry flavors

White – White Oak Russian River Chardonnay
golden delicious apple, anjou pear and subtle toasty oak notes


Sparkling – Francis Coppola Sofia Blanc De Blancs
subtle notes of pineapple, peach, honeysuckle, apricot and lime

White – Kendall Jackson VR Chardonnay
tropical flavors – pineapple, mango, and papaya – with citrus notes

Red – Gerard Bertrand Reserve Speciale Pinot Noir
ripe cherry and wild raspberry flavors with notes of nutmeg + brown spice with silky tannin and an elegant finish


Cheers! And remember to celebrate responsibly.
