The season of festive celebrations, extravagant lunches and jovial dinners is upon us. Hence, it goes without saying that it is time to bring out those delectable festive dishes that call for the finest of wines to accompany them. Think hearty, generous roasts complemented by some extraordinary red blends. And what better than our outstanding collection of Bordeaux styled blends!
To make all those holiday gatherings more marvellous, we thought it a good idea to share a few food pairing tips for that festive food table of yours to ensure you get through the holiday season with ease. Each course also serving as the perfect accompaniment to a glass of some of our finest De Toren wines of course…
Canapés | Tomato Polenta Tartlets
Piccolo Tomato | Goat’s Cheese & Chives | Cracked Black Pepper

Mussels & Parsley Cream Sauce | Aubergine | Courgettes | Fresh Parsley & Caviar

Main Course | Honey Mustard Glazed Gammon
Cloves & Parsley Sauce ǀ Peppercorns | Wholegrain Mustard

Following main course, enjoy either the De Toren Z or De Toren Fusion V with a beautifully curated artisanal cheese and preserve selection or of course Book XVII or The Black Lion will also pair exceptionally well with this.
We recommend decanting our Bordeaux styled blends at least one hour before enjoyment and serving it at the optimal temperature of 15-18 degrees Celsius, to allow the release of all the intended aromas and flavours.
Enjoy and be merry!
