Industry Specialist Mike Martin Shares his Perfect Thanksgiving Day Wines & Spirits

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Combining your closest family and friends, delicious food, football and wonderful beverages will always make for an unforgettable time.

Preparing for the perfect meal and accompaniments can be a stressful task. This year I have put together a list of great wines and spirits to help guide you through, at least this portion of your shopping list.

First things first, cocktail hour… There is something for everyone on this list and these great choices will surly accompany your hor-d’ourves and pre-meal festivities very well.

Next up, your main course… The list below was chosen to cover just about anything you could possibly plan to serve your guests. From turkey, to ham, to lamb and all of your side dishes in between, this list will cover all basis for the beverages accompanying your meal.

Lastly, we finish up with our after dinner dessert style sippers… Here is a nice selection to not only enjoy w/ dessert, but also relax and wind down with.

I hope you found this fun and helpful on your quest to prepare the perfect evening. If you have any questions or need any more recommendations, please feel free to email me directly at Have a very happy Thanksgiving everyone!
