Holiday Cheer with Colorado Wine

Tis the season for holiday feasts, and many people struggle with what wines may best complement their culinary creations. The simple answer: pair whatever wine you like best, or the wine that you first picture in hand when eating [insert holiday dish here]. Many of you may have family visiting from out-of-state, or you may be traveling to them. Either way, you can make a contribution to the meal and show your state pride with Colorado estate wine from Canyon Wind Cellars and Anemoi Wines.

For those of you who aren’t content with winging your wine selection, or perhaps you relish the idea of harmonizing the meal’s flavors with your favorite vino, you want to pair wine that has similar flavors to those that will be in your main dishes. This can be a challenge if you are serving very different dishes together, such as savory turkey or pot roast with sweet potato casserole. It is nearly impossible to say that one wine will go with everything in your holiday spread, but our most adaptable, crowd-pleasing wines are our 47-Ten Wines—bring some wine altitude to the table!

Here are pairing recommendations of our wines for some common holiday dishes:

  • Turkey: Chardonnay, 47-Ten Rose, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, 47-Ten Red
  • Ham: Chardonnay, 47-Ten Red, Merlot, Lips, Boreas
  • Prime Rib or Roast Beef: Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot (If you still have some!), Apeliotes, Boreas, Zephyrus, IV
  • Lamb: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Lips, Zephyrus
  • Roast Duck or Goose: Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
  • Root Vegetables (Potatoes, Carrots, Parsnips, Beets, Etc.): Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot
  • Pie (Pumpkin, Fruit, Chess, Crack): Iapyx
  • Chocolate Desserts, Cheesecake: Port

The award for best pairing with cold weather goes to mulled wine, made with most any dry red wine. I recommend using our 47-Ten Red. If you stop in our tasting room in Palisade, Colorado during the winter months on a weekend, you will usually find that we’ve made some for you to sample. We even sell mulled wine by the glass now! If you aren’t familiar with mulled wine, it is heated and spiced wine that is sweetened to taste. It will warm you up and make your house smell amazing on a cold day. Pro tip: for a little extra pizazz, add a splash of port and/or an orange slice to your mulled wine.

Gift shoppers: family and friends love the gift of Colorado wine! Our tasting room is open daily throughout the holiday season from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM except for Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Ask our staff about our gift wrapping options. A few unique gift options we offer: wine accessories available in our tasting room, one of our Private Tour and Tasting reservations at the winery, or a Wine Club membership. Shop online any time at We can ship wine to many states, with exclusions listed in Terms of Use.

From all of the staff at Canyon Wind Cellars (including Finley Santa), Happy Holidays to you and yours!

Though the last step, this is the most crucial of all. This is because you have to lock your deal with a mover of your choice. However, before making payments in advance once again evaluate all the information which you have gathered from doing the survey of the other companies More information:

Choosing a packer and mover has been easy with the evolution of the internet. Nevertheless, there are some features which must be taken into consideration while browsing the websites of the companies. Evaluating the rates and studying the client’s testimonials are the highly recommended steps before hiring the company More information: Besides, always ask the company for a free survey before hiring them to get familiar with the quality of services they provide More information:

In recent times, it is no longer a complex task you can easily find the best packers and movers in , just you have to know where and how to find them. There are large numbers of movers and packers are available in which is providing a variety of services but to finalize randomly anyone of them is not a good idea, as these can be problematic for you in future. Finding packers and movers in is very easy and simple but to find a cost-effective and reliable one is really challenging More information:
