Every Thanksgiving I get asked by customers, blog followers, friends and periodicals, “What Wines Go Well With Turkey”. Every year, I say the same response. “The holiday plate is not just about a slice of Turkey. What about the sugar in the candied yams, cranberry sauce or relish, spices in savory stuffings, herbs used to flavor Turkey?” It is quite the challenge for any Sommelier to pair one wine with the entire meal however I feel that Roses especially Sparkling Roses are your best options that will work best with everything on the plate. This year I have a couple of German Surprises a Red and White that I also think would be perfect. Happy THANKSGIVING not TURKEY DAY.
Grape-fully yours, Larry
