Thanksgiving in General
The following wines should please most people and won’t break your budget. We tried to identify wines to pair well with traditional Thanksgiving food like turkey, veggies and pumpkin pie.
- Bogle Chardonnay – White
- Mark West Chardonnay – White
- La Merika Pinot Noir – Red
- Kendall Jackson Syrah – Red
If you have an inexperienced crowd:
These are more inexpensive wines which should be appealing to underdeveloped palates (which usually look for something sweeter and smooth).
- Jam Jar Moscato – White
- Wattle Creek Sauvignon Blanc – White
- Cocobon – Red
- Blue Fin Petite Sirah – Red
If you have an adventurous crowd:
These are some of our favorites so we recommend them for those individuals who care more about the wine than the food – caution: if embarking on this path be sure people get to enjoy the wine!
If you have a snobby crowd:
We all know these people – and sadly, they usually care more about the name than the flavor. To impress these folks you’ll have to spend a little more but these wines will reward your taste buds.
- Cakebread Cellars – Red
- Rombauer Cellars – Red/White (known for their chardonnay)
- Grgich Hills – Red
