The Perfect Wine for Thanksgiving Dinner
Thanksgiving is known for being a diverse and rich meal, often featuring a variety of flavors and dishes. When it comes to selecting wines for the holidays, it's a good idea to choose wines that are versatile and can complement the range of flavors on the table. Here are some of the best wine options for Thanksgiving only found at Dos Olivos Market:
Pinot Noir is the perfect wine for Thanksgiving that we all go back to each year because of its versatility. It pairs well with both white and dark meat, making it an excellent match for turkey. Its red berry and earthy notes complement the flavors of stuffing, cranberry sauce, and roasted vegetables. Our favorite is the Send Nudes Pinot Noir from Slo Down winery in Sonoma County, California. This wine has notes of cranberry, clove and vanilla and is more than just the name. A Red Zinfandel, particularly Old Ghost Red Zinfandel from Lodi California, a medium-bodied pour, can be a good choice for the holiday. Its fruity and peppery characteristics can complement the flavors of turkey and cranberry sauce.
If you’re looking for the best white wines for Thanksgiving; Chardonnay, Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc are the way to go. A well-balanced, medium to full-bodied pour like La Crema Sonoma Coast Chardonnay can be a great choice for those who prefer white wine. It goes well with the rich, buttery flavors of dishes like mashed potatoes, gravy, and creamy casseroles. Carl Graff Riesling has a sweetness and acidity that make it a versatile option. It pairs beautifully with sweet and spicy dishes, like glazed ham, sweet potato casserole, or spicier preparations of turkey. If you prefer a lighter white wine, Sauvignon Blanc's bright acidity and herbal notes can work well with lighter fare, like salads and green bean casseroles.
