This year has felt like the longest year ever of our lives, yet here we are, about to celebrate one of America’s most historical holidays – Thanksgiving. There will undoubtedly be lots of food, and in some homes, lots of wine! If you’re preparing for a small gathering of friends or family, your meal is not complete without the proper wine pairings. Today on the blog, Lincoln Road Package Store shares ideas for wine pairings for Thanksgiving. Hopefully, our suggestions reduce your holiday meal planning stress.
Let’s start with the lightest to the dark red wines.
Rose isn’t just a summer wine. This particular wine from the Rhone Valley, France, is well-balanced sweet, yet dry, suitable for even picky drinkers. It offers exquisite flavors of sweet strawberries and slightly acidic raspberries. This Rose could be served with appetizers, although it pairs well with the traditional Thanksgiving meal.
Riesling is well known and popular with many chefs because it pairs well with different cuisines. Dr. Vokmar Riesling Kabinet is from Rheinhessen, Germany, and presents a pleasing flavor of apple, peach, and citrus fruits. Like the above-mentioned Rose wine, this one also is versatile enough to be served throughout your meal and pairs exceptionally well with ham.
With bright notes of fresh apple and pear, the Suvali Chardonnay from California has hints of oak, which pairs well with meat and vegetables.
Another California wine, the Sonoma River Pinot Noir, has hints of red fruit and baking spices, which pair well with the traditional Thanksgiving dinner featuring turkey and roasted vegetables. Pinot Noir is notorious for being known as a holiday wine, so you can’t really go wrong with choosing it to serve with your meal.
With velvety tannins, this California wine is ideal for pairing with red meats, dressing, and gravy. It is silky smooth yet has noticeable flavors of ripe blackberries, plums, and cherries.
From the Penedes region of Spain, this bubbly wine pairs well with desserts. With a crisp, semi-sweet flavor of apples, pear, and a hint of cinnamon toast, this effervescent wine can be enjoyed as a delightful after-meal treat.
