Thanksgiving Wine Pairings

Posted by The Wine Whore |

Since it seems like everyone is giving their Thanksgiving wine suggestions, I felt it was only appropriate that I contribute one of my own...

Here's My Thanksgiving Wine Pairing Suggestion:

  • Grab several bottles of your favorite wine (red, white, WHATEVER!)

  • Enjoy some turkey (substitute whatever else you have around the house if diet/budget don't permit... peanut butter sandwiches will even work if that's all you got)

  • Combine with friends, family, pets, and whoever/whatever else is fortunate enough to cross paths with your life.

Enjoy and be thankful for life, living, and the good times!

Sounds like you been to our house. All the relatives bring their own wine, reds, whites, rose and sparkling, or substitute with wine coolers.
BTW, always preferred a good Bordeaux with the Turkey. This year it will be Damiani Wine Cellars, Meritage.

I just wanted to remind people about what's REALLY important! Sounds like your house has it going on for Thanksgiving.

Good call! I'm thinking I may crack into one of the bottles that made its way back with me from Bordeaux... probably from St Emilion. That Damiani should also be a solid choice!

Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving!

Pinot Pinot Pinot! It's all about Pinot Noir with Thanksgiving turkey. Or Burgundy, depending on how many coffers you have in your piggy bank. I'd recommend a good Russian River Valley or Monterey County Pinot, since they have less of an emphasis on big berry fruit and more red cherry and subtlety. Happy Turkey Day!
p.s. Be sure to check out my wine blog at http://winorhino.blogspot.com :)

I've heard so many different recs on what to drink, I wouldn't dare give my suggestions. I think that this is one of those holidays where wine shouldn't be the focus of the evening.

P.S. Thank you for the great suggestions, I would have to agree with most of them!

Zinfandel is a divine pairing for Thanksgiving.

Designated wine bringer this year...

Fig jam and goat cheese crustini's paired with a sparkling rose to start. Suggestion for a good sparkler?

Couple bottles of pinot, 2004 Argile Nuthouse Pinot from Williamette and one from RRV, Suggestions for RRV? Something a little lighter to go with food. I'm open to suggestions under $30.00.

Couple of whites, Gruner Veltliner and suggestions?

May crack 96 Gaja???????? If I can bring myself

Excellent advice... I firmly believe in the 'Drink What You Like' approach! ;)

We're hitting a little Oregon Pinot, a little Cali Zin and a Tavel.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

LOL! Every time I think about that phrase, I think about your site. You really should start charging royalties on it... it's brilliant and VERY true!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family as well!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Can I ask where anonymous got the fig jam? I've been looking for fig jam and can't find it. Ok, now, back to the wine discussion.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too! :)

That's a great question! Hopefully anonymous share the answer with us.
