When you’re enjoying a Thanksgiving meal with family or friends, let’s face it, the best thing to offer to bring is the wine!
If you’re not sure where to start, allow Certified Sommelier and Certified Specialist of Wine, David Harrell, to guide you through which wines will be absolute crowd pleasers at your Thanksgiving dinner.
Get the Party Started with Rosé
Bringing a bottle of Rosé is always a winner! The best celebrations start with Chandon. Sparkling wine is an excellent choice as an aperitif or to pair with appetizers. Chandon Rosé has the effervescence and crispness that can cut through rich, fatty flavors and the perfect way to get kick off the holiday season. Bieler Pere & Fils Rosé is fresh, festive, & the perfect Rosé for your holiday table. This Rosé has it all when looking for a wine to pair with so many sides that the Thanksgiving meal brings. This wine offers wonderful ripe red fruit notes and citrus fruits that is crisp and dry on the pallet.

Its acidity also makes it a great match for turkey and spicier side dishes. Many consider Riesling to be the perfect Thanksgiving wine as it a versatile wine that works with just about any dish.
