What wine goes with YOUR Winter Solstice Celebrations?

December 20, 2009

Wine Blogging Wednesday #64 December 23rd, 2009 is hosted by El Jefe at Twisted Oak who naturally adds a twist to it and is, also, naturally, running some Twisted holiday specials which you can see for yourself here The point, he says of this WBW, is to come up with your own holiday pairings, and to have fun:

Pick any winter holiday or observance EXCEPT Hanukkah, Christmas Day, Kwanzaa, or New Years Day or Eve, and choose a wine to celebrate it! For purposes of this WBW, the holiday date chosen must be between December 7, 2009 and January 7, 2010. You may also pair a food with your chosen holiday and wine, but that is optional.
Read the complete Wine Blogging Wednesday #64 prompt. To participate: Send a link to your blog post to El Jefe.
My “holiday”? How about a Winter Solstice Santacon? I just happen to know about one on Sunday December 20–with a pre-Santacon brunch serving a BBQ ham! Let’s see, what goes with a Santacon? What should we drink? What will we drink? How much more twisted fun could a group of people have for a wine tasting? (Oh, yeah, I’m the one who organized a few wine tastings at Burning Man!)
