What wine would you pair with a Virginia ham?

Asked by aprilsimnel (30749points) April 1st, 2010

I’m going to a friend’s Easter dinner on Sunday, and the meat course is a traditional Virginia baked ham.

Previously, where I went for Easter every year alcohol was not allowed.

What wine tastes best with ham?

A white zinfandel, a reisling, or a blush would seem good choices to me. A svenska red might also work. I spelled reisling wrong I think.
It’s riesling.

Red – Pinot Noir White – Gewurztraminer

A white Rhine wine or a light red. Is this the very salty smoked ham or a sugar cure? Thw whites would be better for the saltier ones. Gewurstraminer Reisling or the like, Alsatian whites, etc.

The rule would be white, but I prefer the red. I would go with a Sangiovesie

A dry sparkling white like Asti Spumante; not too sweet to counter the sweetness of the ham.

I would recommend Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape. It is a lovely wine, and would be perfect with ham.

And it’s a New York vintner, too! Bonus! @tim,-Pretty_Lilly-drewen I went to look that up, and this was the first hit. Bwahahahaha!

I would recommend a dry rose, Sauvignon Blanc, or Vinho Verde.
