Christmas Wines I
You've probably done all your shopping for Christmas dinner by now, but have you chosen the wine to match your turkey? I recommend having both a white and a red on the table. If your preference is for white meat, a dry white wine such as a white Burgundy or a cool-climate Chardonnay – from Ontario or New Zealand – would be ideal. If your turkey stuffing includes fruit I'd opt for a Riesling, Kabinett style from Germany or off-dry style from Ontario. Keep listening to 680 News for my recommendations for red wines with turkey.

Christmas Wines II
When it comes to the Christmas turkey I always advocate both a white and a red wine on the table. For those who prefer dark meat a red wine is preferable. You don't need a blockbuster – a Beaujolais Villages at room temperature, an Ontario Pinot Noir or a red Burgundy would be perfect. And when it comes to left-over turkey a glass of wine always helps to prolong the celebration. I wish you and your family all the best for the holiday season.
