BEST WINES TO PAIR WITH YOUR CHRISTMAS DINNER
No doubt preparations are already underway for the Christmas dinner later this month, including getting your menu ready. Of course, a delicious Christmas feast isn’t complete without the perfect wines to really make an impression, and ensure your day tops both the style, and taste charts.
We’ve put together the ultimate Sea Change wine guide for the holidays. Whether you’re enjoying festive drinks with friends or planning your Christmas dinner, we’re here to help!
Wine pairing can seem a little daunting but, essentially, it’s about finding the perfect partner for a dish. We’re confident we’ve got something for everyone in our award-winning range.
PROSECCO FOR BREAKFAST!
We believe that a glass of fizz at breakfast is the best way to start Christmas Day! If you’re starting off your festivities with a celebratory glass of our award-winning Prosecco, our Christmas Day Pack is the perfect partner:
For something even more luxurious, add the elegance and summer berry fruits of a rosé to the soft bubbles - our Prosecco Rosé is truly special!
CHRISTMAS TURKEY AND OTHER MEATS WINE PAIRING
When it comes to main course, you’ll want to make sure you pair the flavours and textures you’ve chosen with the perfect wine.
A traditional turkey is fairly mild in flavour, so make sure the wine you choose doesn’t overwhelm it. For this reason, Sea Change Sauvignon Blanc is hard to beat. Refreshing, vibrant and zesty, this is a classic Sauvignon in an easy drinking style.
If you prefer goose, you can go a little bolder with your wine choices due to its higher fat content and more gamey flavour. We’d suggest our Sea Change Organic Red - a full-bodied, vibrant wine packed full of rich, fruity flavours that will complement your goose nicely. If you prefer white, try our Riesling, whose structure and balanced acidity, would be a great match for your main.
Our Simply Sea Change festive wine case is the hassle-free way to enjoy an eco-friendly and delicious Christmas. Curated with celebrations and food-matching in mind, our range of reds, whites, rosés and Prosecco provide the ideal accompaniments whether it’s canapés with friends or traditional Christmas dinner.
If you’ve got beef on the menu, it has to be red wine all the way. Take your pick of reds from our Sea Change festive packs or select our Warming Reds pack. Featuring our Negroamaro, Organic Red and Merlot, it’s made for red wine lovers!
NUT ROAST WINE PAIRING
If you’re enjoying a meat-free Christmas, it’s just as important to find the perfect wine match to complement those flavour-filled favourites. The robust flavours of French reds work really well with a nut roast – choose between our Merlot or Malbec, chock-full of dark fruit flavour and spice.
If a meat-free Wellington is on your menu, Sea Change Chardonnay is a match made in heaven for a mushroom Wellington. If you’re adding chestnuts or prefer a red to accompany, our Malbec is a fantastic option.
Whether your Christmas dinner is a meat or vegetarian feast, why not give your table that extra wow factor with our Limited Edition Sea Change Provence Rosé Magnum? This is a touch of true decadence and is guaranteed to impress!
CHEESEBOARD AND DESSERT WINE PAIRING
With so many cheese and dessert options, we’ve picked just a few pairings to ensure your meal ends with as much impact as it begins. A traditional cheddar is a staple of any well stocked cheeseboard, and pairs beautifully with Sea Change’s Chardonnay (remember to make sure it’s well chilled).
If you’ve got a herby cheese, goat’s cheese or feta, our Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect partner. And for Italian cheese lovers our Pinot Grigio, bursting with citrus zest, is superb with mozzarella, Burrata and other mild Italian cheeses.
SPARKLING WINES FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON
It’s not just Christmas that we’ve got you covered for, of course. To see in New Year, it simply MUST be sparkling!
Our Prosecco and Prosecco Rosé are award-winning, and both feature our beautiful Starfish label, just one of the marine creatures you will be helping to protect by purchasing Sea Change wine.
GREAT WINE IS ONLY HALF OUR STORY
Buying from Sea Change means not only a delicious Christmas, but an eco-conscious one too. Our goal is to combine our love of great wine with our desire to do something to help protect our oceans. We believe that everyone has a role to play in protecting our marine life. Turning the tide on the juggernaut that is plastic pollution is only going to happen if we all make changes, even small ones, and this is where the wine you choose can play a role this Christmas.
Every bottle sold helps fund ocean conservation projects across the globe and our minimal packaging reduces waste and environmental impact. With your help, we have already raised over €400,000 to protect our oceans and marine life.
