Which wines to choose for New Year's Eve?

The choice of wines for New Year's Eve will once again depend on the menu you have planned and the preferences of your guests. However, here are some general recommendations for celebrating New Year's Eve:

Sparkling wines:

  1. Champagne: Nothing screams party like a bottle of Champagne. It can be served as an aperitif or throughout the meal.

  2. Prosecco: A cheaper but equally delicious alternative to Champagne. Excellent for toasts and sparkling wine-based cocktails.

White wines:

  1. Sparkling Chardonnay: If you want something different from traditional sparkling wine, a sparkling Chardonnay can be a fresh and elegant choice.

  2. Pinot Grigio: A light, fresh white wine that pairs well with light appetizers and seafood.

Red wines:

  1. Cabernet Sauvignon: A robust, structured wine that pairs well with red meats and rich dishes.

  2. Syrah/Shiraz: A bold option that can be perfect with roasts or barbecues.

  3. Lambrusco: An Italian sparkling red wine that can be a fun and festive addition to your selection.

Sweet or dessert wines:

  1. Asti Spumante: A sweet, sparkling wine that can be an excellent choice for sweet toasts.

  2. Brachetto d'Acqui: A sweet, sparkling red wine that pairs well with chocolate desserts.

Always remember to consider the taste of your guests and pair the wines with the food you are serving. If you have the chance, seek advice from a wine expert or sommelier, who can help you find the perfect options for your New Year's Eve party.
