The Sure Thing
A delicate Pinot Noir is a real winner. Choosing one that is fine-boned and delicate like ones that come from Oregon’s Willamette Valley won’t ever go wrong with a big holiday meal because they often showcase those typical fall flavors of cranberry, apples, and spice. La Crema’s Willamette Pinot is bright and juicy with a lingering finish.
Keeping it Fresh
With a heavier dinner, something fresh with green notes can be a perfect palate cleaner in between bites. Liquid Light is vibrant, crisp and refreshing. This ultra-high-acid expression fits the bill as the ultimate, tasty refresher.

The Crowd Pleaser
You know how you can make your mom and grandma happy? Bring a Riesling. End of discussion. Late harvest wines made from white grapes, like this riesling, are picked later in the fall and therefore have accumulated more sugar, have just the right amount of sweetness.

Who Needs Dessert?
Perfect to have after a large meal and served slightly warm or with a bit of a chill, Von Stiehl Cherry Bounce was released in 2009 to honor the winery’s Wisconsin founder, Doc Stiehl. The label was inspired by an old tonic label and the juice itself is a blend of cherry brandy and the original von Stiehl cherry wine recipe. A true classic that is the perfect ending to a great meal.
