Foodies/winos, I need help

I'm hosting Easter, and I'm serving ham.  I never make ham, so I have no idea what kind of wine to pair with it.  WWWWD?

    Hmmm, we just drink what we like, but wouldn't the glaze/prep make a difference?

    I suppose, maybe.  I haven't thought that far ahead yet.

    Is something sparkling, like a nice prosecco, a good option?  I'm thinking it's light and crisp enough to cut the salty richness of the ham.  Or, along those lines, maybe a nice Sauvignon blanc? 

    I may have to start Googling, but I trust y'all's judgment more than random interwebs articles.

    i'd say a fruity sweet wine, and my go for that is a riesling.

    how about an off-dry riesling? 

    B. Lovely is a good bet - fairly inexpensive (about $9/bottle)

    I second Riesling. Columbia Crest is very good but it is one of the sweeter Rieslings. I like Schmitt-Sohne. Bright blue bottle. Any of the three they make. Also Chateau Ste. Michelle is good, a little less sweet then the ones above.

    <div>I had a bottle (187mL) of Schmitt Sohne last night. That one runs about $8 for a 750mL bottle. </div><div>Washington Hills makes a good Riesling too - green label  on the bottle - same price range - $8-10/bottle. </div>

    We call it the bright blue bottle of happiness.  mmm

    I have to say that the Aldi Reisling is quite good and even cheaper.

    I'll second a Prosecco, but that's because it's Easter! Celebrate! Have something sparkling!

    Otherwise, I'd just drink what you like. It's ham, I think it's pretty versatile.
