Hosting Easter dinner? Choose the right wine

The Domaine Terres de Solence is a great white wine, perfect for your holiday dinner.

The word “Côtes” crops up in the names of a number of French wine regions, and with good reason: it means “slopes” and slopes make for good drainage and sun exposure – both big plusses for wine grapes. For Domaine Terres de Solence, those good conditions mean they can forego pesticides and other chemicals in favor of 100% organic winegrowing. The “Cippus” Côtes du Ventoux has a satisfying mix of flavors that characterize the southern Rhône: blackberry, smoke, sage, and a touch of black pepper. It’s fairly full-bodied, with smooth tannins.

The Fauna Sauvignon Blanc 2005 from MyWinesDirect is a great red wine for your Easter feast.

At the north end of New Zealand’s southern island, looking across the Cook Strait, is Marlborough, a wine region which gave the country its first international success – all because of the way its cool, maritime weather ripens Sauvignon Blanc into a refreshing, aromatic, fruit-filled wine. The Fauna Sauvignon Blanc pushes the tropical fruit envelope with aromas of guava, passionfruit, and mango, and stays light and smooth on the palate.
