Wining And Dining

Fantastic wines for holiday entertaining

When entertaining over the holidays, never forget the most important thing on the table: wine.

Pause for a moment to consider the potential trauma of running out of vino at a party, and then relax: Wines from the Touraine region of France are balanced and pair well with a variety of foods, making them the ideal choice for a festive party with friends or a simple dinner date for two.

Located in the famed Loire Valley, Touraine wines have a great balance between fresh and fruity flavors, making them easy to sip and perfect for just about any recipe. The climatic differences of the region and variety of soils produce an abundance of grape varietals, so you get the bounty of wine types the area is known for.

When hosting your next dinner party, pair a Touraine Sauvignon Blanc with Tasting Table's fragrant Roast Quail with Farro and Winter Squash (get the recipe) and prepare for an evening of good times and great conversation.

Because let's be honest: The holidays are a great excuse for another glass.
