Wine is a must-have for most Thanksgiving tables, and for many, it’s something that is enjoyed with everything from appetizers to desserts. Whether you’re more of a red wine drinker, or prefer a light, crisp, white wine, there are many options for your annual festivities! Check out a few sommelier-recommended varieties below.
With its citrus-based flavors and smooth drinkability, sauvignon blanc is a great choice for pairing with white meat like turkey, and other traditional Thanksgiving sides, like mashed potatoes. This type of wine also tends to be a hit with both new and seasoned wine drinkers.
It’s not easy to find a wine that pairs well with all the flavors of Thanksgiving – from rich onions and garlic to sweet desserts. Pinot grigio is one such wine that can handle a variety of flavor palettes.
Whether you choose a dry Riesling or one that is fairly sweet, you can take advantage of a complex flavor pairing when you sip this type of wine with your Thanksgiving dinner. Its acids and innate flavors of apple, apricot, and honey make it a clear winner when paired with rich dishes.
Red wine is synonymous with big, bold flavors, but for something lighter and fruitier, reach for a Beaujolais nouveau. Turkey tastes perfect with this French wine, as do things like stuffing and dessert.
An eternal favorite during Thanksgiving festivities, pinot noir’s characteristic earthy undertones, and often mushroom-inspired flavors make it a natural fit among your herb-crusted turkey and rich, traditionally flavored casseroles.
