Top Wine and Food Pairings for Thanksgiving

thanksgiving wine and food pairings

We can’t believe it’s almost Thanksgiving!

This year, harvest season flew right past us. Now it’s time for everyone to wine down 😉 and enjoy great food and wine with our families during the holiday season. To make things simple and easy, we’re providing you with our favorite wine pairings for your thanksgiving meals to help you spend less time roaming the aisles of the liquor store and more time laughing and making memories with your families.

Sauvignon Blanc:

Goes perfect with appetizers like salads and veggie platters. The flavors of apple and melon would be a great starter wine, while being both refreshing and not overly heavy before your Thanksgiving meal.

Riesling:

Same goes for Riesling, depending on if it is more on the sweet or dry side. The fruity flavors will go well with the other fruit flavors like cranberry sauce, and the crispness will also go well with the salads and veggies platters.

Pinot Noir:

A wine that can pair with most of the Thanksgiving dishes being passed around, from turkey to sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce. The smooth flavors of plum, cherries and berries accompany these dishes perfectly.

Zinfandel:

Another wine that can pair with most of the Thanksgiving dishes being served. It provides more of a sweet plum or berry jam flavor with the added bonus of some notes of pepper. This is great for the heavier dishes where the sweet and spicy will balance out the richness of a casserole or creamy mashed potatoes.

We hope everyone has a yummy and safe Thanksgiving!
