Perfect wine pairings for your Christmas dinner

The science of pairing wine with food has been studied for hundreds, if not thousands of years, and the general consensus is that they work wonderfully together. What is not an exact science, however, is what traditional holiday meals are served from one family to another. Each could potentially have a different varietal of wine that suits the staple of the meal. To help with this  dilemma I have comprised a list of common festive feasts and near perfect wines to pair with them.

Tips on how to make holiday entertaining easier

‘Twas the night before guests arrived, when all through the house, not a creature was silent, not even the spouse. The stockings were hung by the chimney in a hurry, in hope that they could pull it together with haste, not fury.

There’s more to kosher wines than sweet concord grape

The holiday season is upon us and that means Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa too. The upcoming Hanukkah festival of lights, which begins Dec. 2 this year, is typically not a drinking holiday. I write that as a Jewish level-2, certified sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers and a senior wine and spirits specialist at the new ABC Fine Wine and Spirits in North Miami Beach. Hanukkah is traditionally more for eating latkes with applesauce or sour cream and dreidel spinning for prizes. Nevertheless, this is one of a several times each year when more people ask me about kosher wine recommendations for exchanging gifts.

I absolutely love Halloween! There is nothing more fun than a bunch of people getting creative with costumes, throwing festive parties, and toasting the chilly fall season. The problem is that it can be difficult to pair wine with such occasions.  Is wine appropriate to bring to a Halloween party? Does this wine go well with candy? I spent WAY too much money on my costume, can I still get a good wine for the Monster Mash later? Lucky for you, I have put together some tricks (and treats) that may help you with your Halloween wine dilemma.
