Your expert guide to Christmas food and wine matching

Want a red for turkey and a white for cheese? Or maybe it's the other way round? Use our guide to find the perfect wine to make those festive flavours sing

Xenia Irwin MW, Partner and Cellar wine buyer

Whether you're looking for wines to pair with food or something for a party, there are wines to suit every palate - from creamy or mineral-crisp whites, to light and fruity or spicy, full-bodied reds. As a guide, look for wines with tasting notes that chime with ingredients on your menu.

Got a crowd coming? Try these get-ahead ideas before the day...

IDEA 1

Fill up salt cellars and pepper grinders, iron napkins and set the right number of knives, forks and spoons to one side ready to lay the table.

IDEA 2

Plan which platters to use for which vegetables. Two dishes of everything means food doesn't go cold while it's being passed round.

IDEA 3

Make sure you have enough glasses for everyone. If not, hire them for free through Waitrose & Partners. Ask for details at your local store.
