Different Options for Wind and Food Pairings for Thanksgiving

As William Arthur Ward quoted about gratitude: “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”

A Thanksgiving feast is perhaps one of the most highly-awaited event that you will be thanking for which only happens once a year aside from Christmas. I’m sure you can smell those mouth-watering roast turkeys around any houses in your neighborhood. All that arduous preparation of starting with making the best stuffing, the best sidings like mashed potatoes and scrumptious deserts that will leave you stuffed.

Well, all that hard work has finally paid off. Thanksgiving is finally here! Get ready for a wonderful time of family and friends reunion that happens every year. It will truly spark your excellent feast tonight.  And how can it be more special without the best wine to complete tonight’s dinner.

Choosing the best wines that will greatly complement your delicious Thanksgiving dishes can be a chore sometimes if you want to make your evening perfect. It is a fact that turkey is one of the most all-around meats when pairing it with wine.

If you are reading this now, then allow us to give you some of the best-selling wine types that will help you decide the best wine for a specific dish on your Thanksgiving buffet. And without keeping you waiting, here they are:

  1. Pinot Noir can be considered as an easy-tasting wine that goes along very well with meats like turkey or beef and if you have a delicious salmon dish, pinot noir will be a great match. Not only that, it goes along with almost any dinner courses including desert.
  1. Sauvignon Blanc is best paired with salads and mostly any vegetable-rich dishes. If most of your family member are vegan and wanted to enjoy that salad with wine, then this will be a great vegan dinner partner!
  1. Chardonnay can be a great pair if your dinner is more of a buttery creamy type. It can further improve the taste with some oven-roasted dishes and mashed potatoes.
  1. Sparkling can be a great partner with seafood including oysters. Oh, and don’t forget cheese. It goes along pretty well too.
  1. Cabernet Sauvignon will make those beefy dishes superb. If you think sausage pizza is not a great quick thanksgiving dinner then think again. Believe it or not, cabernet sauvignon can also be a great combination to that sausage pizza you are embarrassed of.
