BEST WINES FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER

More often than not, the Thanksgiving meal is a celebration of diversity – the diversity of the different dishes covering the holiday table and the diversity of the different palates of your guests sitting around it. And while it may seem simple to pair wines with a specific dish or wine preference, it can prove a bit challenging to find wines that match such a wide array of different flavors, textures and personal tastes. For example, while white wine may pair better with the turkey itself, a red wine may go better with some of the side dishes. Some of your guests may prefer white, while others may only drink red. To help you select the best wines for Thanksgiving dinner this year, we have put together a guide of our favorite Thanksgiving wines and the dishes with which to enjoy them.

OUR GUIDE TO PAIRING WINE WITH STEAK

One of the most satisfying wine pairings out there, steak & red wine is the kind of “yang” to the “ying” of fish & white. And while a juicy cut of beef with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon seems to fit the bill more often than not, pairing wine with steak can be a more complex endeavor. As is true with all food, the specific characteristics of your ingredient and the way it is prepared will influence the style of wine that matches it best. To help you learn to choose the perfect wine for your steak recipe, we have listed various steak styles and recommended wines with which to enjoy them.

WHAT WINE GOES WITH TURKEY ?

While this hearty poultry makes for a great club sandwich, savory soup or even meatballs, turkey no doubt shines brightest as the centerpiece of a festive Thanksgiving feast with family and friends. The internet serves as a great resource for a myriad of delicious turkey recipes. Nevertheless, you may be asking yourself, “What wine goes with turkey?” In fact, the answer to this question depends – as with all food – on the cooking techniques used to prepare the ingredient and on the form it takes on your table. For example, while a bright and mineral white wine will go well with lemon and garlic turkey, a bolder, spicier red wine may taste better with a smoked turkey, for example. To help you choose the right wine for your favorite turkey dishes, we have put together a guide with different styles and the turkey preparations with which to enjoy them.

WINE PAIRING WITH SALMON

Grilled, roasted, steamed or smoked… There is perhaps no fish more versatile than salmon. This is a rich, oily fish by nature, with pink to orange flesh revealing tons of great flavor. Salmon is delicate enough to enjoy simply baked in foil with lemon and herbs, but hearty enough to stand up to a number of more rigorous preparations. And while rich, full-bodied white wines generally pair well with most salmon recipes, some preparations may be more interesting when served with sparkling wines, rosé or red wine. When selecting a wine pairing with salmon, it is crucial to consider the preparation technique of the fish, as well as the seasonings and sauces used to add flavor and texture. To help you make the right choice, we have put together a simple guide with some common salmon preparations and wine styles with which to serve them.
