Thanksgiving is all about family and friends getting together and giving Thanks for the wonderful year. My large family gather together and share the day with food and fun.
So you are invited to Lunch : Come early and stay late …. Lisa
First up : Thanksgiving wine pairing .
Perfect before Lunch while visiting with friends are helping out in the kitchen A few wine choices to enjoy with the meal ..
Zinfandel could very well be the #1 All-American Thanksgiving wine choice given that it was once the most planted variety in California (prior to the Prohibition era). Here’s how this wine will behave when paired with food:
Pinot Noir is the fine-wine lover’s #1 pick for Thanksgiving, which is due (in large part) to the grape’s prestigious pedigree tracing back to Burgundy, France.
Beaujolais is the Francophiles #1 choice for Thanksgiving wines
If you feature brussels sprouts or green beans prevalently in your meal, consider a lean, herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc as a highlight wine pairing.
