Mother’s Day Food and Wine Guide

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 pairings:
  • Taylors Estate Label Pinot Noir: This medium-bodied wine boasts delightful cherry and strawberry notes, a silky palate, and a subtle savoury earthiness. It's a versatile choice that pairs beautifully with a range of dishes.
  • Taylors Jaraman Sauvignon Blanc: With its vibrant fruit flavours and delicate acidity, this sauvignon blanc complements a variety of foods, including antipasto, salads, Asian dishes, seafood curry, and vegetarian fare.
  • Taylors Estate Label Pinot Gris: An elegant option with pear and citrus flavours, this pinot gris pairs wonderfully with salmon, chicken, turkey, and salads.
  • Taylors Jaraman Shiraz - Rich and robust, this shiraz is a fantastic match for 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 Label Sparkling 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.

Creative pairings:
  • French Toast with Mascarpone Cream and Berries: Indulge Mom with this decadent dish, paired beautifully with Promised Land Merlot or Cabernet Merlot.
