Thanksgiving in Wine Country

112615aOur last few days were spent in the Willamette Valley where signs of autumn abounded. Although most vineyards shed their leaves, the fifty-year old vines at David Hill Winery showcased bright yellows. On a cloudy day it provided a ray of sunshine. There were pumpkins at every winery we visited. The pumpkin that caught my attention as symbolic of Thanksgiving in wine country was at Youngberg Hill Vineyards and Inn in McMinnville. Painted on the pumpkin was a wine bottle, glass of wine and bunch of grapes. What better way to say Happy Thanksgiving?

Spending Thanksgiving in Oregon provides a wonderful opportunity for pairing traditional Thanksgiving foods and Oregon wines. While in the Willamette Valley, we chose a Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, and four Pinot Noirs for our family Thanksgiving celebration. With those wines we have most of the day set for food and wine pairings.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
