Mother’s Day Food and Wine Guide

November 21, 2023

Raise a toast to all the mums this Mother's Day with these delicious food and wine pairing suggestions. Whether you're planning a lavish brunch, a cosy dinner, or a casual picnic, we have the perfect recommendations to make mums day.

Classic food & wine pairings:

  • Taylors Estate Pinot Noir is a medium-bodied wine with cherry and strawberry notes | a silky palate and a subtle savoury earthiness.

  • Sauvignon Blanc - can match well with antipasto | salads | party food | Asian dishes | seafood curry | and vegetarian dishes. Taylors Estate Sauvignon Blanc with its tropical fruit flavours and delicate acidity would go well with any of these dishes.

  • Pinot Gris - an elegant Taylors Estate Pinot Gris with pear and citrus flavours would go well with salmon | chicken | turkey and salads.

  • Shiraz - a Shiraz could pair well with pizza | pasta dishes and barbecue beef.

The food and wine you select for Mother’s Day depends on the way you intend celebrating it. Light party food and a celebratory atmosphere may go better with some fun bubbles, while a cosy, hearty beef dish served by a roaring fire on a cool night would marry well with a full-bodied red.

Taylors Estate Sparkling or Taylor Made Prosecco is a special touch to making mums day! If the weather is favourable, a picnic is also a lovely way to celebrate with family members.
