It seems as if a beverage has to be gourd flavored in order for it to be fall-suitable. But while there aren’t any pumpkin flavored wines – at least none that we know of, and we’d like to keep it that way – there are some suggestions that pair perfectly with Thanksgiving meals.
- Sparkling Wine: Always a family favorite, and it’s versatile—Thanksgiving is its ultimate test, pairing beautifully with any dish.
- Zinfandel: Bold, red and has the boldness to stand up to a spicy stuffing or dare we say, a cranberry dish?
- Pinot Noir: Because it typically has high acid and a medium to light body, this favorite food wine will pair beautifully with a variety of dishes.
- Rose: Rosé is en vogue. It’s Crisp, light, and fruity, this lovely light pink wine IS the perfect holiday wine to accompany a heavy meal. Serve chilled.
