wine recommendations for thanksgiving

Being the foodies we are this is truly our favorite time of the year at Vine & Table. Our wealth of knowledge is put to the test daily as we make sure that each wine and food recommendation is absolutely perfect for your purpose. This year, we are making it even easier for you to enjoy your holiday meals, gifting and parties. We’re available on facebook to answer your wine and wine pairing questions.  Below is a pairing guide you might find helpful, but don’t hesitate to ask us for personalized recommendations for all you holiday events whether serving, hosting, bringing, gifting, or saving. Like us on facebook and ask away!

So if you’re thinking of eating this, serve that!

Serving Turkey –> Pinot Noir, Chianti, Gewurztraminer, Dry Riesling
Adding Ham, Stuffing or Yams to the menu –> Gruner Veltliner, Rhone, Alsatian
Oysters or Seafood as well –> Burgundy is perfect
Sausage in the stuffing –> Zinfandel or a big Tuscan Red
Going with Chicken this year –> Rioja
Duck instead –> Rosé or Rhone
Feeling like Lamb, or Pork w/apples –> Merlot is your ticket
Mushrooms make the cut –> Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo
Focused on the Cranberries –> Dry Riesling, Fruit wine
Oops, don’t forget the Pies–> Ice Wine or Port
Finally, when in doubt –> Burgundy!

Cheers,

Bethann

About Bethann Kendall

I am so very excited to introduce myself to you. As the Wine Buyer and Sales Lead for Vine & Table, I get the best of both worlds: Indulgence in my passion for wine AND the opportunity to share this passion with you. Just a few things you might want to know about me: I spent some of my early years in the fine dining industry and quickly learned I had a talent for pairing food and wine. It wasn’t long after that when I realized I needed to know anything and everything about my favorite beverage. The next logical step was the Sommelier program, which is an ongoing journey to both satisfy my personal growth and to exceed your expectations. follow me on twitter: twitter.com/vinovent
