Choosing a Thanksgiving Wine

What wines for Thanksgiving?

With Thanksgiving Day quickly approaching, have you decided what kind of wines you may want to serve your family and friends? 

If you want to prepare any of the Thanksgiving traditional recipes with wine, check out the Wine Trail Traveler Thanksgiving recipe suggestions that use wine as an ingredient. Usually wine used in a recipe also pairs well with the meal. 

Some wine writers suggest that it is hard to pair Thanksgiving foods with wine; however, we believe that it’s a good idea to have both a red and white wine available. Sparkling wines are also good. You just can’t go wrong with favorite wines either. Oh, sure there’s one in every crowd who thinks they want to be a know-it-all, but overall if a well-made wine is served, it will be enjoyed.

A week ago we visited some wineries in the Southern area of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. As we were tasting predominantly Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, we thought that both would pair well with the various foods on a Thanksgiving Day dinner table.

If you have any doubts about what to serve, ask at your favorite winery or wine shop.
