10 great wines for Mother's Day

Looking for a gift for mom this Mother's Day? Here are a few suggestions of excellent bottles to offer with—as a bonus—tasty wine and food pairings.

Published on April 26, 2022

"Happy Mother's Day!" We say it every year, and yet every time, we spend hours looking for a gift that will surpass last year's.

While many of us would like to give the moon to our moms, it's often the little things that bring the greatest joy. Mother's Day is a time to be there for the one who gave us so much. So, to celebrate her properly, and share beautiful moments with family, what could be better than a good bottle and a delicious meal prepared with love?

Here are 10 wine and food pairing suggestions to spoil mom.

Sieur D'Arques Première Bulle Blanquette de Limoux

Let's start the festivities with Sieur d'Arques Première Bulle Blanquette de Limoux. This sparkling wine will charm mom with its citrus aromas and full mouthfeel, revealing notes of apple on the finish. Blanquette de Limoux pairs beautifully with fish as an apéritif; and so, we suggest a fresh appetizer: ceviche.

Fiol Prosecco

To fully appreciate this prosecco, you have to understand the meaning of "fiol". In old Italian slang, this word refers to a good friend, a trusted person. This sparkling wine embodies the spirit of the day, dedicated to our dear mother. Thanks to its honeyed aromas as well as its fruity and floral notes, the Fiol prosecco will be the perfect accompaniment to an appetizer of bite-size crab cakes.

Pommery Brut Royal

There are some bottles that we save for special occasions, and the Pommery Brut Royal is certainly one of them. This champagne has an elegant and lively mouthfeel, beautiful finish, and an exemplary harmony, making it the pride of the prestigious house of Reims. Nothing less for mom! To enhance the experience, we suggest our recipe for delicate cheddar chouquettes.

Altolandon Enrosado Manchuela 2021

Is mom curious and loves discovery? Surprise her with an Altolandon Enrosado Mancuela! Organically grown, the vines of the Alto Landon estate are among the highest in Spain, giving this wine exquisite freshness and drinkability. It has floral notes, as well as aromas of tangerine and orange peel. An ideal thirst-quenching wine for Mother's Day, it goes perfectly with a main course like this seafood risotto. Sunshine on the plate and in the glass!

Gérard Bertrand Pays d’Oc Naturae 2020

As its name suggests, Naturae is a natural and organic wine that showcases the essence of the Languedoc-Roussillon terroir. This delicious Syrah reveals notes of blackcurrant, blackberry, violet and licorice that linger on the palate. It is best enjoyed with beef tartare, a classic dish that never disappoints, just like a natural Syrah.

Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay Vintners Reserve

A staple California Chardonnay, this has been the best-selling wine in the United States since 1982. Its enveloping mouthfeel reveals aromas of butter, caramel, white flowers, pear and vanilla, imparted from its oak aging. Round and generous, this wine will reveal all its splendour when enjoyed with salmon blanquette mini-casseroles.

Cheers to all mothers!
