Holiday wine suggestions from the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail

Still trying to figure our what wines to pair with your holiday meals?  Here are some suggestions from a few of our wineries:

Amore Winery offers up two holiday wine suggestions:  Spiced Apple and Rapport, a port-style wine (just released).

Blue Mountain Winery suggests Mountain Spice-Aromas of apple and cinnamon, six varieties of apples deliciously blended into a semi-dry wine. Can be enjoyed cold or heated. Try our 2004 Chambourcin with mulling spices. The flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg & orange zest along with the sweetness from the brown sugar, turn the Chambourcin into a wonderful warm, mulled wine.

Sorrenti Cherry Valley Vineyards just released a Blackberry Merlot in a special bottle that is perfect for holiday gift giving. They also have a four bottle split selection with a holiday label of their best 100% PA fruit wines (including Blueberry, Blackberry, Peach and Blackberry Merlot).

Clover Hill Winery loves to celebrate the season with the Holiday wine heated up. Another favorite wine to help spread cheer is their 2009 Generations Sparkling Pinot Noir.  This is a dry sparkling wine made from 100% Pinot Noir (limited release).

Vynecrest Winery
offers up their version of a German-style Gluhwein call Spiced Winter Red.

Pinnacle Ridge Winery’
s favorite food pairing for the holiday is the 2008 Ice Wine and Snowballs. The honeyed character of the nectar of frozen grapes pairs beautifully with the nutty almond flavor of these light cookies.
