New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to chill your favorite sparkling wine (or still white if you aren’t into bubbles) and gather a few loved ones to ring in the year. You’ll need some snacks! Here are a few of our favorite celebratory wine pairings that are perfect for NYE!

Prepare For The Pinot
If you are like many of us here in wine country, following every bottle of sparkling or white wine is a bottle of Anderson Valley Pinot Noir. Pinot is just simple. Many other red wines, especially in their youth, need food to tone down the tannin, alcohol, or fruit (e.g. Cabernet Sauvignon or Syrah). While Pinot doesn’t require food, it is especially great with dishes from poultry, duck, and venison. In the event your glass goes empty over the course of the evening, we recommend you have your back-up Pinot ready.
