Before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here with its aromas of turkey, stuffing, potatoes and pumpkin pie. And whether you are serving 2 people or 20, you will definitely need wine to go with your feast.
Let Sharrott Winery help with our recommended food and wine pairings for your Thanksgiving dinner.
These wines are light-bodied and dry with fruity aromas and a crisp finish.
Cheese and crackers – Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Trio
The tannins in these dry reds will enhance the full-bodied flavors of cheddar and blue cheeses.
Swedish Meatballs – Barrel Reserve Chardonnay, Vignoles
White wines, whether oaked or sweet, enhance the spices found in this favorite recipe.
Dry Riesling is the perfect match for roasted turkey. Try Dry Rose with a fork-full of cranberry sauce. And dry wine lovers will enjoy Unoaked Chardonnay or Vidal Blanc with their feast.
If you really prefer red wine, try Trio – its light body and smooth finish complement the variety of foods on your table.
Roast Beef/Steak – Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tango, Merlot, Coeur d’Est
Dark Chocolate – Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Wicked
Chocolate Fondue – Chambourcin, Crimson Sky
