Grapes and Gobbles: What Wine Should You Have on Your Thanksgiving Table?
11/12/2015
Turkey, stuffing, and cranberries, oh my! The weather is cooling off and Thanksgiving is fast approaching, which means you're probably in the midst of finalizing your dinner guest list and perfecting the menu for the feast. A good glass of wine is just as vital to your Thanksgiving dinner as the turkey itself.

Steer clear of dry wines, whose flavors struggle to compete with all of the sugar and salt in your large meal. A sweeter wine will be a nice contrast to the turkey, plus pair well with even the marshmellow-iest of yams.

At Bishop's Vineyard, our first choice is a glass of our Pinot Noir. This is a highly acidic and low-in-tannin varietal, whose fruit-forward notes of cherry and cranberry will brilliantly compliment the wide variety of flavors on your Thanksgiving table. A good runner up would be a Zinfandel--our varietal has a wonderful rosemary finish that will pair well with the spices and herbs on a roasted turkey!

If you're not a fan of red wine, try our crisp Rosé. It's sweet but not too sweet, high in acidity like the Pinot, and has a price that won't break the bank if you're hosting your large family for dinner.
