Great Wines For Your Easter Basket

Easter is a beautiful time of year.  Spring is kicking into full gear, flowers are blooming and it’s a great reason to get together with friends and family to celebrate the holiday with a nice meal.  What I also appreciate about Easter is that most of the foods on the table are very wine pairing friendly.  For this offer I put together a few wines that are not only stylistically correct but also break away from the classic Pinots, Cabernets and Chardonnays that can get us stuck in a rut.  We put together a few wines that have a traditional pairing style but will also give you the opportunity to explore regions and varietals that you may not have normally consider when putting together the menu.
