The go-to drink for every Easter brunch
Champagne is the perfect accompaniment for every Easter brunch moment, whether you're celebrating with family or friends. Its effervescence and refreshing acidity make it the perfect palate cleanser between bites, and its versatility means it can pair well with a variety of dishes.
For example, if you're enjoying a light and refreshing fruit salad, a dry Brut Champagne would complement it perfectly. Or if you're indulging in a rich and decadent quiche Lorraine, a fuller-bodied Grand Cru would be an excellent choice.
But why stop there? Champagne can also be enjoyed on its own as a celebratory drink to toast the holiday with your loved ones.

Whether you prefer a classic quiche Lorraine or a veggie-packed version, quiche is a brunch staple that never disappoints. A Pinot Noir with its high acidity is the perfect choice to complement the savoury flavours of the dish and add some elegance to your gathering.
What do you think of the Bon Vivant Pinot Noir?
Classic Smoked Salmon, yes please!
A classic brunch dish that's perfect for seafood lovers. The delicate flavours of smoked salmon call for a light and refreshing wine. Pair it with a dry Rosé or a Chardonnay for a perfect balance.
Try the Calalenta Merlot rosato!
The star of the show! A juicy, honey-glazed ham pairs beautifully with a bold red wine like a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Syrah. This pairing is perfect for a family gathering, as it adds warmth and richness to the meal.

Carrot Cake, with that yummy glace
Easter isn't complete without a slice of carrot cake for dessert. The sweet, spicy flavours of the cake call for a sweet, fruity wine. Pair it with a Riesling or a Gewürztraminer for a perfect end to your brunch.
