Deck the Halls this holiday season with the right people and right wine. Host a fabulous dinner for the ones you love with our Miles Wine Cellars holiday wine guide. 

Chances are you’ll be hosting a dinner party before the year ends, if not you’ll surely attend a few. Our handcrafted wines are the result of our own family tradition, and we love to see them dressing dinner tables on special occasions. Our wines pair well with winter cooking and cold weather, but even better with friends and family. 

Three magical wines, three different styles are all you need to successfully entertain your guests and carry them through a true celebratory evening they won’t forget. 

Act I The Aperitif

If you’re hosting dinner, start the night off with a bottle or two of our Dry Riesling. Fresh, crisp and intensely aromatic, it’s a great conversation starter and a crowd pleaser. The wine will open your appetite and will pair beautifully with finger food, pâté, crudités, soft cheese, and any other canapés, nibbles and bites being passed around.

The wine offers citrus and white peach aromas, white flowers, and orange blossoms rounded up by lively acidity and a long mineral finish. A perfect way to start a celebration. 

As a guest, make sure you don’t arrive at the party empty-handed. Any wine lover will receive this wine joyfully. Riesling has that kind of elegance, like fine chocolate; it’s always a perfect gift. 

Act II The Bold Red

Once seated, it’s time to free pour the big red. Dust off one of your Milestone red wine bottles you’ve been saving for special occasions. If you don’t already have a few bottles laying down, it’s a good time to gift yourself a case and watch this wine evolve. 

Milestone is the Miles Wine Cellars flagship red, it’s made from estate grown Cab Franc and Merlot. The wine is dry and generous, the nose offers black fruit aromas, blueberries, and hints of oak. The palate is coating and firm, a concentrated wine that will match roast beef, steak, and roast turkey with ease. Let it breathe and open up in the glass; the wine improves with every sip. 

This also is a beautiful gift; For the ones you hold dearest. 

Act III The Cherry on the Cake

As the night comes to an end, add a little sweetness to the evening with Miles Treasure fortified ruby style Lemberger. This wine is warm and rich. Unctuous and festive, it’s a great wine to start a tradition. Treasure will warm you and your guests up and will offer a few more hours of joyful conversation. Bring out a cheese platter and a mixed bowl of nuts and dried fruit. Serve it chilled, in big glasses, pour generously and leave the bottle in hand. 

Enjoy and share the wines of the Finger Lakes with pride. Estate-grown and hand-crafted wines are the land’s gift to you. Celebrate this exciting wine region and make it part of your own celebrations. Miles Wine Cellars wish you happy holidays.
