Picking the right wine for your Easter dinner is easy, but what goes well with those Peeps and peanut butter eggs? These wine pairings will take your Easter candies to a whole new level.

  • 1. Marshmallow Peeps


    A sparkling wine – an off-dry prosecco or a demi-sec Champagne with a hint of sweetness – will enhance both the flavor and texture of your marshmallowy yellow baby chicks and hot pink bunnies.

    Recommendation: La Marca Prosecco, Veneto, Italy, NV

  • 2. Milk Chocolate Bunny


    A fruity, semi-sparkling Italian red wine like Brachetto d’Acqui will accompany your hollow, milk chocolate Peter Rabbit perfectly. It also pairs nicely with your sugary orange carrot.

    Recommendation: Vigne Regali Rosa Regale Brachetto d’Acqui, Piedmont, Italy, NV

  • 3. Jelly Beans


    A citrusy wine with a hint of sweetness – an off-dry riesling or chenin blanc – will complement the flavors and sweetness of these colorful sweets.

    Recommendation: Dr. Loosen Riesling Kabinett Erdener Treppchen, Mosel, Germany, 2014

  • 4. Cadbury Creme Eggs


    For many, this is the quintessential Easter candy. A milk chocolate shell encases a creamy, unctuously sweet filling, colored to mimic a real egg. An orange muscat stands up to its texture and sweetness and complements its unique flavors.

    Recommendation: Quady Essensia Orange Muscat, California, 2014

  • 5. Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg


    With its classic Reese’s peanut butter center encased in decadent milk chocolate, this is a peanut butter lover’s most coveted Easter confection. The perfect pairing is an aged tawny port that mirrors and complements its nutty flavors.

    Recommendation: Fonseca Tawny Port 20 Year Old, Portugal, NV
