Need a couple of last minute Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner Wine Ideas?

Charles Smith ‘Secco Bianco’ ~ Veneto, Italy

Fresh and elegant. Layers and layers of flavors. Elderberry, anise, Italian summer melon, beeswax and seashells live within so many tiny bubbles. Totally delicious!

Thanksgiving Pairing: A perfect starter or even better…serve with the main course, turkey!

Casamaro Verdejo ~ Rueda, Spain

Pungent citrus fruit and zest on the nose, with a complex bouquet of herbs and white flowers. Racy lemon and lime flavors follow up with an intriguing floral honey aroma.  If you’re a fan of Sauvignon Blanc, this is a great wine for you.

Thanksgiving Pairing: Great with the salad course.  Goat cheese, fresh pear and drizzled honey – a fab starter for an elegant Thanksgiving dinner.

Crios Malbec ~ Mendoza, Argentina

Aromas of freshly crushed black cherries and toasty/smoky oak frame the exuberant fruit, while flavors of cherries, spice and jammy fruit lend a hint of spice and sandalwood on the nose.

Thanksgiving Pairing: A ‘pair to all’ kind of wine!  But, if you’re planning on grilling your turkey this holiday season, this is the wine.  Perfect with the smoky bits of your turkey & gravy.

Terra Burdigala Causse Rouge ~ Bordeaux, France

95% Merlot & 5% Cabernet:  An easy-going blend, with aromas and flavors of black cherry and vanilla. Medium-bodied, with a supple mouth-feel and alluring nose.

Thanksgiving Pairing: Pair this wine to a traditional Thanksgiving stuffing, whoah! An absolute match made in heaven.  Earthy, round and absolutely delicious, yes please!  Also perfect with root vegetables and a grilled or smoked turkey.

Emeri Pink Moscato ~ Australia

Velvety with fresh strawberry and raspberry fruit aromas – a little sticky and sweet, but just the answer to dessert!

Thanksgiving Pairing: No need to head down the traditional ‘dessert wine’ aisle this season, Pink Moscato is the answer to ALL your last course needs, especially for your traditional pumpkin, pecan and apple pie!
