We celebrate Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 14, this year. Over 50 countries worldwide have a designated date on the calendar to honour Mom.

I wrote a piece for the current issue of TASTE magazine with Mother’s Day in mind – ‘Flowers and Wine Pairings for a Perfect Mother’s Day.’

When I submitted my pitch idea, I thought about what I would like for Mother’s Day and what many Moms would like: flowers and a nice bottle of wine. I paired similar aroma profiles in wines and matched them to the bouquet of certain flowers. Let’s just say I had a fun time writing this one!

If you are looking for inspiration, I’ve got you covered.

Flower and Wine Pairing Suggestions for Mother’s Day:

Peonies and Rosé
Magnolias and Moscato
Violets and Merlot
Roses and Gewürztraminer
Lavender and Grenache
Lilacs and Red Blends

I am fortunate enough to have a beautiful and loving Mom. She taught me what unconditional love is.

I am fortunate to be a Mom to the best human being I have ever known. I am biased, of course, but for any of you who know my daughter, you know she is exceptional.

Sending Happy Mother’s Day wishes to all the Moms, past and present, who make this world better and brighter.
