As we all woke to snow earlier this week we might have assumed Spring has fallen asleep on the job. I am a little anxious to get going with outdoor activities, open the windows and break out of my Winter cloister.

Forget the weather, it’s Easter time and it’s time to enjoy some holiday specialties. Do you belong to the Lamb or ham group? We are well stocked to satisfy all celebratory feasts. For a classic, smoky cured ham and scalloped potato spread, go with something fruity, crisp and slightly sweet to contrast the saltiness of the food. Riesling and Gewurztraminer are excellent choices for white wines and you could also use a Pinot Gris if you want something drier. Avoid Chardonnay or any oaky whites as they do not offer the same level of freshness that is needed. For reds, go with low tannin reds in the light to medium weight class. Pinot Noir and Gamay are good choices as are Barbera and Dolcetto from Italy. For a lamb dinner, try a Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah or a nice Rhone blend.

Come on in and we’ll fix you up for deliciousness this Easter!
