For this year's Mother's Day celebrations, why not indulge a little bit? After all, rosés are always better than roses. Here are our favourite wine pairings for a whole Sunday of celebration.
First thing in the morning, try the Old Vines Riesling Natural Brut from Tantalus. It's a unique and complex sparkling white that Mom will love with a brunch of bagels and lox or smoked salmon bennies. Mix with OJ, or just sip it straight.

As on any day where a late brunch takes the place of breakfast and lunch, it's always good to plan on an afternoon snack. This Rosé from Culmina pairs extremely well with an afternoon charcuterie board. Gather a selection of cheeses, meats, olives, and bread, and enjoy a lazy afternoon with Mom.
When deciding on a dinner menu, this mushroom risotto recipe from Chef Alana Peckham is a sure bet. Risotto offers an air of luxury but here’s a little secret: it’s actually not that difficult to make. Pair it with this medium-bodied Pinot Noir from the Cowichan Valley’s Emandare for a real treat. Try prepping the accompanying pesto and cherry reduction sauce in advance so there’s just the risotto to whip up on Mother’s Day, meaning you get even more quality time with her.
