Wines that Match your Favourite Christmas Songs

It’s almost Christmas time! Most of us are dreaming about the mouth water watering food, wine and counting down the days until we can fully indulge. It’s a time to celebrate with friends and family, listen to Christmas tunes whilst giving gifts. When the music starts to play loudly and you start to feel the bubbles of the champagne, get ready to groove. We want you on your feet and dancing. Here, is a list of songs that pair with our wines to bring you Christmas cheer. Winemaking tells a story which can be reflected in tone of the song. The distinct nuances and characteristic of each wine can match the festive jiggles melodies and rhythms. Like lighting up the tree, lets light up the dance floor with our festive beats and wine.

 

That Christmas Song by Nat King Cole.

To get started, the soothing and jazzy song has rich tones, lush vocals, and delicate piano strokes. We recommend a wine with soul, like our Estate Shiraz wine. The wines fuller body and velvety tannins will warm you like a fireplace creating a similar atmosphere to the songs story.

 

It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas by Michael Bublé. 

The next song’s airier and whimsical nature suits a lighter and fresher style wine. We recommend our Estate Riesling wine. The cheery notes of the song match perfectly with the lifted notes of citrus and crisp acidity.

 

This Christmas by Donny Hathaway. 

The song starts with a pickup of drums and upbeat syncopated rhythms. We recommend pairing the song with our Impressionist Pinot Grigio, as the complexity of the wine and its summer fruit notes will shine with each funky beat.

 

Feliz Navidad by José Feliciano.

The songs bold and colourful tones match perfectly with our Impressionist Tempranillowine. The punchy fruit flavours and spicy notes mirror the songs bright and fun nature. The Spanish heritage of the varietal is a nod to the traditional Spanish Christmas greeting.

Nothing beats a glass of wine to get the party pumping!
