Food and Wine Pairings Guide and Suggestions

what to serve

Whites


Champagne Sparkling wine is a great aperitif to sip while you wait for the turkey to finish cooking. It adds a celebratory note to the meal and goes well with starters like soup and salad. 

Sauvignon Blanc pairs with everything from butternut-squash soup to green salad to turkey with a dressing made of briny oysters and herbs. Even notoriously tough-to-pair Brussels sprouts will sing with Sauvignon Blanc. Also for contrast and richness of cream sauces and dressings New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs work best.

Pinot Grigio is a good aperitif and goes well with roasted turkey.

Gewurztraminer has a spicy/lychee character that sets it up for cranberry and pumpkin or butternut squash soup flavored with baking spices.

Riesling, with their tropical fruit, citrus, green-apple, pear and mineral notes, work with almost any Thanksgiving dish except cranberry sauce and desserts.

Chardonnay – A big, buttery chardonnay from California or Chile can complement the roasted, smoky flavors of squash, chestnuts and pecan stuffing.

 

Reds

Syrah and Zinfandel has the spice, dark fruit and berries to bring out the best in cranberry sauces also works well with dark meats.


Pinot Noir is the single best wine to choose for Thanksgiving. It has tangy red fruit of strawberry and cherry, with nice acidity. Pinot Noir will support most things on the Thanksgiving table without overpowering them .

Pinot Perfect for ThanksPort or a dessert wine for very sugary desserts work great, as long as the wine is as sweet or sweeter than the confection. That’s important because a less-sweet wine will taste thin, tart or even bitter.

And Dont Forget The Rose!!!

Rose wines are PERFECT for turkey and all the side dishes! If you feel that rose wines are to casual then drink it with leftovers.Rose is Dry not to sweet and VERY refreshing.
