Turkey Day Wines


I guess it is required that I offer some wine ideas to go with the turkey, yams, cranberry, ham, pumpkin pie, stuffing, beans, etc that we are about to indulge in this Thursday. The best solution is to offer many wines given the variety of food offerings, although someone suggested that Champagne would be a good overall choice as this is a celebration. I would also offer Rose of any varietal, Sparkling Shiraz, Gruner Veltliner, White Burgundy, Pinot Noir and/or Burgundy, Grenache, Chianti and let's not forget the dessert wines. I think a Vintage Madeira would be the perfect end to a monstrous meal with all your in-laws as you recline on the sofa watching non-stop football!

We had a Cava with shrimp cocktail in the afternoon. Then an Auslese that was given to us by German folks and a Penner-Ash Pinot Noir with the turkey, stuffing, cranberry relish, sweet potatoes, etc.
