If you’re spending Christmas in the UK this year, then nostalgia for the homeland may already be kicking in. After all, little about the festive period in the UK mirrors that of a traditional South African Christmas, least of all the weather.

While families back home enjoy the option of alfresco dining and a summertime braai, Christmas in the UK usually involves time spent by the fire indoors rather than outdoors. However, that doesn’t mean a fine touch of South Africa can’t be introduced to the festivities, especially as the newly-launched online retailer, South Africa House of Wine, is on hand to help.

Food and wine pairings

Stocking the UK’s largest selection of South African wines, you can find the ideal homeland tipple to perfectly complement your Christmas and New Year drinking. Whether tucking into a conventional South African Christmas meal, a traditional British roast, or party entertaining, South Africa House of Wine’s extensive selection of over 230 bottles promises to add the warming taste of home to your festive celebrations.

For those planning to tuck into a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, the UK wine merchant stocks a great selection of over 30 Chardonnays in both cool and warm climate styles, from across the country’s best wine producing regions, including the Breede River Valley and Cape South Coast.

In contrast, if duck is on the menu, then opting for one of the home country’s finest Pinot Noirs is guaranteed to leave you feeling closer to home. A glass or two of rosé is most complementary with gammon dishes and for seafood lovers, a Sauvignon Blanc from the Coastal Region is ideal for recreating a South African Christmas abroad.

South Africa House of Wine also offers a small range of dessert wines to be enjoyed with a variety of festive afters. Be it Christmas pudding, trifle or something a little more exotic, a post-dinner tipple is a must at Christmastime.
