Wines for Every Holiday Occasion

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Whether you are looking to serve a bottle of wine at your holiday dinner, after dinner with dessert or with appetizers, Banfi Wines has just the right bottle of wine for you!

Check out some of their great selection below:

Bolla Prosecco

Grapes were both hand and machine harvested for this Bolla Prosecco. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and cuvee close to develop the stars.

The color is a bright, deep straw in color and the bouquet is an appealing ripe fruit on the nose with hints of apple, pear and peach. And it tastes fresh and fruity on the palate with a great vein of acidity and lively finish.

You may enjoy Bolla Prosecco with anything! It is delightful with appetizers, seafood, pasta, chicken, pork and veal as well as desserts.

Rosa Regale

The Rosa Regale has an aromatic bouquet with hints of raspberries, strawberries and rose petals. It tastes like fresh raspberries, with crisp acidity, enticing the palate with an initial softness, graduating to a clean and dry finish.

It is perfect for any occasion because it is an unique and festive sparkling wine, seductive aperitif, and elegant dessert wine. It pairs well with seafood, cheeses, spicy fare and chocolate. Serve chilled.

This sparkling red wine made from Brachetto d’Acqui in Piedmont, Italy is love at first sip and a perpetual crowd pleaser.

Riunite Lambrusco

The pressing and brief maceration of select grapes for this Riunite Lambrusco is followed by the fermentation of the must at controlled temperature. A second fermentation, using the Charmat method, imparts the characteristic sparkling note.

The fruity, soft and harmonious bouquet is paired with the light, well-balanced taste! This is one of my our favorites!

Riunite Lambrusco is perfect for every occasion. Enjoyable and straight forward, its easy drinkability make it a favorite with a wide variety of foods, including spicy fare.

Riunite Peach Moscato

This Peach Moscato has a bouquet of strong peach, accompanied by hints of honey and sage. The taste is clean, with strong, ripe peach flavors; sweet with soft aromatics.

It is ideal as an aperitif, but Riunite Peach Moscato also pairs well with fruit, salads, spicy foods and desserts in general. Serve chilled at 40°F-46°F.

Pacific Rim Riesling

The Riesling juice is fermented at cold temperatures for 30 days and then aged in stainless steel tanks. All our Rieslings are fermented with native yeasts. They use no oak and no malolactic on this wine– it’s as pure and unmanipulated as it gets.

The Jasmine, pear and apple bouquet is paired with the taste of apricot, jasmine with a balanced sugar level.

It is ideal to pair with spicy Thai and Mexican cuisine, and even rich cuisine such as French and German.

Pacific Rim Sweet Riesling 2012

For this Sweet Riesling, they pick the Riesling grapes early (20-21 Brix) and use only native yeast and ferment at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks – there is no use of oak barrels or malolactic fermentation. They stop the fermentation at about 7% residual sugar, and clean the wine rapidly to retain as much freshness and fruitiness as possible. They leave a fair amount of natural carbon dioxide in the wine to create a lively mouth feel.

It creates a bouquet with honey, pear and orange blossom and the taste is sweet, bright acidity with pineapple and white peach.

Pair this Sweet Riesling with fiery fare – especially Thai, Szechwan, Mexican, Middle Eastern and Caribbean cuisine.
