5 Tips for Buying Wine for Thanksgiving

by David on November 22, 2010

#1: Don’t stress! There’s no “right” wine to go with all of the crazy flavors we have on our plates – theoretically, you’d want a different wine for the candied yams than you would for the spicy stuffing, so don’t even try! Plus, no matter what, Aunt Martha only drinks red and Uncle Cyrus just likes whites, right? So just put out some of each!

#2: Whites are most versatile if they’re crisp and low oak: Sauvignon Blanc, sparkling wine, our Chardonnay, Gewurtztraminer, Riesling

#3: Keep the reds relatively low alcohol and low tannin (Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Beaujolais Nouveau, lighter Zins (check the alcohol before you buy)

#4: Don’t overlook rosé wine – very versatile, especially when it’s dry!

#5! Buy it on sale! Guess what – we’re having one!

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Goosecross!
