Thanksgiving is the one time of year where we intentionally stop and take a moment to give thanks for all we have. And sometimes that can get lost in the bustle of preparing a turkey and gravy and picking wine and worrying about what to do about your great-aunt Judy's not so positive thoughts on your mother and how to keep your kids from getting into a sweet-potato fight. And while we can't guarantee we'll help keep your kids positively occupied, we can at least help you compile the perfect wine list.
Thanksgiving is a big meal, with big flavors. There are a few classics that pair well with dinner that never die: Rosé and Pinot Noir. No two wines pair so well with so many of the dishes at Thanksgiving dinner: turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, and even pumpkin pie.
Of course nothing pairs better with appetizers than a light, bright white wine. We love Riesling, and Viognier with cheese plates, dips, and most anything with bacon.
And to finish off the night, don't miss out on a delicious dessert wine! Our 2011 Syrah Port pairs beautifully with anything with chocolate or pecans, or nab a late harvest Viognier to pair with your pumpkin and fruit pies.
