Thanksgiving Wine

Having wine that pairs perfectly with Thanksgiving dinner can make the best meal of the year even better!  In theme of the American holiday we recommend keeping your wine choices domestic.

Kick the night off with some sparkling wine. It is a great way to start the celebration, but it also goes very well with food.

Domaine Chandon makes a great sparkling wine!  I did a wine tasting there on a recent trip to Napa and their Brut Classic is very nice.

As for the red wine, a Pinot Noir and a Zinfandel are both good choices because the fruit-forward style compliments the saltiness and sweetness of a Thanksgiving meal.

Au Bon Climat from Santa Barbara makes a perfect Pinot Noir

Ridge Vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains is known for making some of the best Zinfandels in California.  Their Lytton Springs Zinfandel is definitely worth trying.  

Enjoy AND drink responsibly!
