The GOODS from JoieFarm
Naramata, BC | Easter celebrations include some of the year’s best feasts: grilled lamb, glazed ham, fresh spring peas, wild asparagus, fiddleheads, herbs, new season potatoes… and maybe just one or two of those little chocolate bunnies.
But having such diverse tastes and textures on one plate makes it challenging choosing a wine to pair. A sweet-and-salty roast may call for the vibrant acidity and crisp finish of an aromatic white, while more savoury dark meats beg for the soft tannins and bright fruity notes of a medium-bodied red. For some, Easter simply marks the occasion to revel again in fresh local produce and Rosé.
Luckily, there’s a JoieBox for that. Our Easter 2019 collection offers a variety of crowd-pleasing, accessible and delicious wines so that you have something to pair with everything on – and satisfy everyone at – the dinner table.
