Pinot Noir and Riesling are the most obvious pairings for Thanksgiving. Buuttt, why not try something a little different? Afterall, this might be your chance to sneak in that oddball wine. Folks May not even notice…. Many people think Thanksgiving is about the wine. And, it is a lot about the food and wine pairings. However, most of the day is filled with conversation and passing of platters. Therefore this could be a perfect chance to throw out some unique wines that are unexpected. Verdejo from Spain could be just the ticket, or, a bold rose’ of Grenache from Tavel. These wines would be delicious alternatives to Pinot Noir and Riesling. A Gruner Veltliner from Austria is perfect for many foods. Expect to see a few unique wines open in the shop tonight. Be open minded and you might find something that you will enjoy sharing with friends and family. Happy Thanksgiving! May your holiday be filled with joy!
