Thanksgiving Wines!

People ask me all the time what wine to serve with fish, meat, cheese, dessert, whatever the flavor of the moment is. My usual answer? Drink whatever tastes good to you!

But there are certain meals that you want to make sure you serve something special, and a wine that’s going to help make the meal. Thanksgiving is one of those times.

Thanksgiving is tough — from the rich, savory flavors of turkey and gravy to the acid and sweetness of cranberry and sweet potatoes. You want to drink some great wine, but stuff too far off the beaten path may not work for Aunt Mabel.

So, there’s lots of advice out there on the perfect Thanksgiving wine – and here’s my take: I prefer lighter, livelier wines that open up the palate rather than overwhelm it. The wines need to be versatile, able to work with all those Thanksgiving flavors. And the fall is perfect for wines that have just been released from local wineries.

So, this month, we’re featuring wines that are perfect for Thanksgiving dinner. Sign up now and don't miss out!
