Easter is just around the corner – and for many, good food and good wine are included when you want to enjoy Easter.
Good morning Norway’s wine expert, Liora Levi, has found her favorites both with and without alcohol. And the bonus: everything is in the basic list and available at all the country’s wine monopolies.
Since there are many who travel away at Easter, we start with cardboard wines, called bag-in-box:
White cardboard wine, 3 liters: Schwedhelm Riesling 2020, Palatinate, Germany, NOK 489.90
– This is a fresh and juicy wine with a lot of taste of yellow apples and citrus which is suitable for cuddling in the loose egg during the Easter week or otherwise of the year, says Liora Levi who adds: – It is also suitable for dishes of fish and white meat.
Red cardboard wine, 3 liters: Giovanni Rosso Barbera, Piedmont, Italy, NOK 500
– This shaving ravine tastes juicy of fresh fruit and is both food-friendly and fireplace-friendly. Try this for pots, barbecue food in the tray and all kinds of everyday food, Levi explains.
Good and expensive white wine: Domaine de Bellene Saint-Romain Vieilles Vignes 2020, Burgundy, France, NOK 399.90
– This is a really good burgundy at a “reasonable” price, because nothing is reasonable from the Burgundy district today. Levi smiles. But if you have expensive food at Easter, you can also buy yourself an expensive wine.
Spanish red wine: Dominio do Bibei Lalama 2019, Galicia, Spain, NOK 263.90
About this wine, Liora says:
– Not a very strong wine, a little more juicy in style. But perfect for Easter. Use it either for the lightest lamb dishes or for cattle and game, says Levi.
Non-alcoholic for Easter: Copenhagen Sparkling Tea Pink, Denmark, NOK 134.90
– Non-alcoholic bubbles with a taste of tea, what in the world are they?
– These are delicious, delicious non-alcoholic bubbles with a taste of fresh red berries and a hint of tea. I will take this for light lamb dishes or just Easter coziness, concludes Liora Levi.
