Cheers to eating, drinking, and drinking some more! The holidays are upon us, which calls for good food and an even better time. Let’s be honest! A perfect meal isn’t complete without a complimentary beverage. Whether you’re celebrating Thanksgiving or Christmas, you’ll appreciate this four-course pairings guide that will make everything taste a bit more festive!

Located in Historic Downtown Buford lies a local wine and charcuterie bar called Cork It. While traveling through various wine countries across the globe, the founders have curated an array of their favorite wines, meats and cheeses. Cork It aims to provide an inviting atmosphere that brings people together one bottle of wine at a time.

Now, let’s dive into some of our favorite Cork It wine selections! Remember, each wine will carry its own set of “DNA.” In other words, each flavor profile will be unique. Wine can be described as dry or sweet, earthy or fruity and maybe even a combination of everything.  That’s the beauty of wine pairing. It’s truly like speed dating until you find the perfect match!

Once you’re a bit tipsy, top it off with an afternoon nap. Then you get to wake up and repeat it again with the leftovers. Oh man, do we “dig” the holidays! Sip, sip, hooray! Be sure to taste-test our local favorites by visiting Cork It Buford, located at 79 E Main St. Buford, GA 30518.

Corn Bread & Raeburn Chardonnay, California
Cornbread’s sweet and buttery ingredients enhance the Chardonnay’s toasty and warm under notes. This iconic pairing is a little teaser of what’s to come.

Ham & Mohua Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough
The crisp and fresh flavors of the Sauvignon Blanc cut through the holiday ham’s saltiness, creating a match made in heaven.

Mashed Potatoes & Bonanza
By Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon, California
Thick and creamy mashed potatoes pair well with the rich and earthy bite of the Cabernet Sauvignon. Cabernet is known to withstand hearty meals, so good thing it’s on our wine lineup!

Pumpkin Pie &  Urban Riesling, Germany
We suggest ending on a sweet note with a classic holiday staple. Dessert wines, like Riesling, cut through the smooth whipped filling of the pumpkin pie. There’s no better feeling than a full belly after a family feast!
