Great Wines To Pair With Easter Lunch

For many of us, Easter is a time of celebration and getting together with friends and family to enjoy good food – and perhaps a good glass of wine or two! If you’re looking for a perfect food and wine pairing for your Easter lunch or dinner, we’ve done the hard work for you. The wines below are all very food friendly and we’ve suggested some great Easter dishes they work particularly well with.  

Sancerre is a great match for seafood dishes.

Domaine de la Chézatte Sancerre

Loire Valley, France, 2021

Was €26.95  Now €22.95

This lovely Sancerre comes from Domaine de la Chezatte, a family owned estate in the most northerly village in Sancerre. It’s crisp and refreshing with citrusy lemon notes and a hint of minerality that’s typical of the region.

Have it with: Seafood (oysters, in particular) or Asian dishes. 



An oaked Chardonnay works well with roast poultry.

Bethany First Village Chardonnay

The fruit for this barrel-fermented Chardonnay comes from vineyards in the foothills of Australia’s hot Barossa Valley and cooler Eden Valley. It’s a beautifully balanced wine, packed with orchard fruits, citrus and green apple. 

Have it with: An oaked Chardonnay pairs well with lots foods but goes particularly well with crisp, roast chicken. 


Pair a bold red with a good steak.

A traditional lamb roast pairs well with this wine.

Blason du Rhône Châteauneuf-du-Pape

 Rhône, France, 2021


This classic Châteauneuf-du-Pape has everything you could want: layers of red fruits such as cherry and strawberry along with warm peppery spice and a full-bodied palate. It’s an elegant, bold wine that’s just perfect for a special occasion such as an Easter feast. 

Have it with: Traditional Easter lamb or a nut roast.


A sweet wine is a great match for a dessert.

San Felice Belcaro Vin Santo
