Dear Reader,

With less than two weeks to go until Christmas, today we would like to make sure you’re making the very best of your favourite festive foods, with the perfect pairing from Great Domaines. Below we share a list of favourite festive season dishes and suggest a short-list of wines from our cellar that pair perfectly with each of them. On our website, you can browse these and others we have curated.
