Thanksgiving Day Wine Tips
Wine recommendations for Thanksgiving dinner include favorites like Pinot Noir, Zinfandel, and Riesling. (Cabernet Sauvignon can be a bit heavy with turkey, but if that is what you love, ask your local wine merchant what they would recommend for this holiday table.)
Pinot Noir, which has expanded in popularity since the movie “Sideways” came out, compliments most any flavor very well and does not overpower the food. The wine has enough fruit to stand up to the cranberry sauce, and sweet potatoes.
Riesling Kabinett Wine
If you prefer white, a Riesling can be a fine choice. For the Riesling, the most important thing to look for on the label is “Kabinett.” These are the driest Rieslings from Germany. A Sauvignon Blanc also pairs well with turkey and gravy. A sparkling wine can help to lighten the feast.
Thanksgiving Table Different Flavors
Remember that different flavors make up the Thanksgiving table – from the yams to the gravy to the Jell-O mold, you may want to consider several options for your Guests. Go with what you enjoy and have another selection for invitees. The advice of a good wine merchant can be very useful. So inquire, test, and drink up!

Thanksgiving is one of my very favorite holidays because it is a special time to spend with friends and family, there is no pressure around gift buying, and food traditions help us make memories and keep them in our hearts.
Even if you are feeling pressured around cooking, stop and reflect on the meaning of this day. We all have our sorrows and concerns but let this day bring some joy to you and your family. All of us have much abundance in our lives, so share this with others.
