WHAT WINE TO PAIR WITH YOUR CHRISTMAS FOOD
The wines to drink Christmas Eve. And you will be surprised when you see what is actually being recommended. Oh, and get 15% off.
First of all, this is not a sponsored post. It’s just about two companies who both have an extreme passion for what they do and what they sell – and a willingness to help each other out. So whenever we need some help in regards to wine, Erik Sørensen Vin are the first ones we call. This time the subject was ‘what wine would compliment the Christmas food?’. For us, it was a jungle. All sommeliers seemed to have their own interpretation and opinion about what wines to serve on Christmas Eve. Some suggested powerfull wines, some preferred more feminine and elegant wines. So we did the easy thing. We asked Erik Sørensen what three wines they preferred. And they delivered – which resulted in a video (in Danish though). Oh, and remember to use the code ‘anivy’ on their web shop or just mention us when you visit their great stores. And no, we don’t get any kinds of money if you use the code, they were simply just being awesome and wanted to give our readers some discount.
