Christmas Dinner with white wine

Starting today, we will suggest every day 10 different wines to bring to the table during the upcoming holidays. We begin with the white wines.

From Sardinia to Friuli, passing through Piedmont, for a total of ten Italian regions offering white wines made for the most part from traditional varietals and available at a reasonable price (all no more than 15 euros).

These are wines to pair with the “light” dishes that distinguish the traditional Italian Christmas Eve meal that is based on fish and vegetables. Thus it is best to focus on fresh and pleasing wines that do not have too much body so they do not dominate over flavors that are often delicate.

We sought to choose from those wines that are also cited in our new publication, Vini per Tutte le Tasche (Wine for All Budgets) by DoctorWine, which we would like to suggest a gift to give our wine lover friends at Christmas. We thank you now should you decided to do so.
