We all know what Halloween candies go well with our favorite wines. But now that we are right in the middle of the holiday season. It’s time to figure out what wines go best with our favorite Christmas cookies.
To be honest a perfect day for me during the holidays is everyone is out of the house, I’m sitting on the sofa with some cookies while watching a Hallmark Christmas Movie…The only thing I need is something to wash it down with. Here are some recommendations:
Butter Cookies – These rich cookies pair great with a crisp, bubbly like Prosecco.
Gingerbread Cookies – Yes this classic holiday treat goes great with a nice semi-dry Riesling or even a seasonal red like Beaujolais.
Jam Thumbprints – These or even those Linzer cookies that get most of their flavor from the center. They pair well with a dessert wine or even something sparkling like a Moscato Rose.
