Wine for Thanksgiving

Nov 22nd, 2011


Do you and your guests usually prefer red wines, dry whites or, possibly, wines with a little sweetness?

The answer to that question is the most important factor in deciding what wine to have. Based on your answer, I suggest that you select one of the following three styles of wine.

Cartlidge & Browne - Pinot Noir

Row 11 - Vinas 3 Pinot Noir

Grayson - Pinot Noir

A to Z Pinot Noir

Pierre Sparr Pinot Noir

Firesteed Pinot Gris
Boomtown Pinot Gris



Other wine-grape varieties that fit the bill are Riesling, Gewurztraminer or Chenin Blanc. Several options here are:


If you usually like wine with a little sweetness, there are several choices that can go with your meal.  Examples here include:
