The smell of delicious food has begun to fill the air. The table is set and ready for all the hungry guests to arrive. So when the time has finally arrived to enjoy your Christmas meal, be sure to have a bottle or two of your favorite wine to celebrate this wonderful occasion. 

We caught up with our local wineries and wine tasting rooms to gather some intel about the types of wine they would serve alongside your favorite Christmas meals. 

Messina Hof

Messina Hof went with the bubbly variety for their choice. Their sommelier did not hesitate to suggest this Sparkling Brut that's perfect for a traditional Christmas toast!

Su Vino

Is there really a true "catch all" Christmas wine? When we stopped into Su Vino to ask that very question, they pulled a bottle of white wine that's made using a blend of three different grapes using Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Pinot Blanc. Hence the name, Blanc 3.

Named for the clouds that roll over their vineyards in West Texas, Cloudburst is a spectacular white wine that can be enjoyed during your Christmas feast.
