Whether you're looking for a gift or the perfect addition to your Christmas menu, Balaton has fine wines for the festive season.

While heavier, elegant reds and whites make Christmas meals even more festive, dry, bubbly drinks are great additions if you plan on serving cold platters, fish or other lighter dishes. White wines go well with heavier meals, powerful reds are perfect companions for roasts, while sweet Balaton reds should make dessert flavours pop.
