Much the way apple, apricot, and pineapple are ideal partners for ham, so, too, are wines with similar fruity notes. Apricot and yellow apple flavors of Hogue Riesling 2008 ($10, center bottle) make a juicy contrast to salty ham. Crisp acidity and light body keep it from seeming too sweet.
For the fresh fruit dessert, choose a wine that is equally refreshing, like a Moscato. It's generally light in alcohol, with just enough sugar to match our gently sweet dessert. Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Moscato 2008 ($8, right bottle) has lychee and honey aromas that highlight the honey cream.
