Thanksgiving Wine Selections

One of the biggest and most anticipated meals of the year deserves to have wines that work well and enhance the overall dining experience.  For a traditional Thanksgiving menu, it helps to pair wine to the sides and sauces rather than focusing on just the turkey. Skip highly tannic wines that will both clash with leaner turkey and overpower everything else.  Reds like Pinot Noir, Beaujolais, Cotes du Rhone or a well-balanced Zinfandel all work well.  For whites, consider an unoaked Chardonnay or White Burgundy, Pinot Gris from Oregon, white Bordeaux or certainly a dry Riesling pairs nicely.  Having tasted each wine we sell, these wines are our picks to pair with your budget and Thanksgiving feast.
