Merry Christmas to all our readers!
To me, Christmas has always seemed a bit less confusing than other holidays for the at-home sommelier. Unlike Thanksgiving, where you sit down to ten courses and 10,000 calories all at once, it’s a great day to spread the drinking around — Champagne in the early afternoon, maybe a nice white wine or light red after that, and then a couple of big reds with dinner (especially if, like me, you’re sitting down to a standing rib roast).
So what’s on your holiday menu this year? An aged Bordeaux? A 2008 Napa Cab? Maybe something from Israel’s “Grapes of Galilee” winery?
