Wine Pairing: The Finest Wines To Go With Your Holiday Meals

Impress your friends by serving one or more of these good red, white, and sparkling wines on your holiday events.

When taken in moderation, alcohol can be a great social lubricant. It makes us more talkative, friendly, and outgoing. But, while we all love the way beers and cocktails make us loosen up and have fun, there's something about drinking wine that makes us slow down, sit back, and savor the experience.

This holiday season, impress your loved ones by serving the best wines on the market at your gatherings. To help you choose the best bubbly to bring out, we're sharing with you the bottles we discovered at Restaurant Week & Wine Festival 2011 that took place last October 3-9. The main wine festivities were held at the Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill, where customers were able to enjoy limited release wines and wine dinners care of Wine Depot and participating restaurants.

The wine appreciation lectures by international award-winning sommeliers (wine stewards) Nick James Martin and Jock Tulloch gave us valuable info on what food to pair with what kind of wine, and how to distinguish the smell and taste of each, as you'll see in our gallery.

Together with the other guests, we wined and dined as the sun went down, learning how to cultivate our wine taste, match certain foods to different types of wine, and identify which flavor and type suits us best. We share all this with you in our wine gallery.

Enjoy the modern art of wine pairing with special dishes offered at the restos in Venice Piazza, like Blackwood Bistro, Empire Deli, Kuse, Little Asia, Old Vine Grille, Pinchos, Red Crab Alimango House, and Sweet Pea, which currently offers Platters for 8 (meals good for eight people at only P800!).

Launch the gallery to see the wines that are perfect for your holiday parties this year, which are all available at Wine Depot. Tell us which ones you'd like to sample and serve!
