#5For5: Spring Wine & Floral Pairings

Spring is the season for entertaining and two key elements that every room requires are wine and flowers. If you are wondering how to take your decor to the next level, consider taking a fresh approach!

We engaged in some in-depth research with a delicious bottle of Ruffino Lumino Pinot Grigio, and based on the advice of Lauren Sabo (owner of Botany & Co.) have worked out five tips on how to make your flowers and wine work together to elevate your spring celebrations.

Match the Label
Keep your colour palette in mind by matching your party florals to the label on your bottle. The peach coloured label on Ruffino Prosecco, when matched with peachy tulips and roses, adds a pop of colour to spring celebrations.

Chill with the wine
Prepare your flowers and wine before the guests arrive to keep everything party ready. Tulips, peonies, and hyacinths make a beautiful centrepiece and bloom for longer when kept cool. Chill your peonies in the fridge alongside your favourite white wine, and keep your hyacinths away from direct sunlight to preserve the opening process for longer.

Match the wine
Why not match the colour of your wine with flowers? Use creamy yellows for whites, and for summer reds like Meiomi Pinot Noir pair with burgundy red charm peonies, to accent the deep colour of the wine.

Food first
Pinot Grigio is a popular choice for the spring since it pairs with favourite spring foods like fresh salads, grilled veggies, savoury spreads, and delicious breads for dipping. At a food-focused gathering, it is best to choose scentless flowers, like seasonal ranunculus and anemones, to keep guests focused on the flavours of the wine and food.

Do not forget to treat the host!
If you are not the one doing the entertaining, remember to bring a hostess gift. Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular wine varietals, making it a great go-to-for gifts. Complete the package with a sweet and simple bouquet as adaptable as the wine, opting for neutral and creamy spring florals like quicksand roses, mottled hellebores and cream lisianthus for a gift you can be sure any hostess will love.

Following these tips will ensure, no matter where you are entertaining, that the setting will be truly Instagram worthy!
