What kind of wine goes well with an Easter entree? Choose your wine based on the body and taste of the dish. Sweet-savory ham and delicately flavored fish won’t be overpowered by lighter wines. Gamier meats, such as lamb, are delicious with a fuller-bodied pairing. Acidic foods, like a dressed salad, work best with similarly flavored wines, like a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. Fatty meats like rib eyes should be enjoyed with tannic red wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon. Consider the meal’s region, too, and match it with a wine from nearby, says master sommelier Bobby Stuckey of Frasca Food and Wine, in Boulder, Colorado.
