It’s almost that time of year again — of course we’re talking about Thanksgiving. Cooking favorite dishes such as turkey, stuffing, potatoes and pumpkin pie is a necessity, but your guests will want a generous glass of wine to pair with their plates as well.
If you’re thinking ahead, you should have a variety of wines to serve your family on Thanksgiving day. Welcome to Marketview Liquor’s top list of wines to have at your dinner table this season.
We understand the stress of cooking the perfect bird. After all, no one wants to eat turkey that’s far too dry. Regardless of your cooking skills, always have a Zinfandel on the menu.
Zinfandels pair well with even the driest of turkeys. The wine will offer your guests a true taste of fall as secondary vanilla and nutmeg flavors hit their taste buds instantly. We highly recommend the Opolo Mountain Zinfandel featuring aromas of black plum, strawberry sorbet and baking spices.
Wine enthusiasts always enjoy a glass of Riesling at the table. Why is that? Dry Riesling wines are rich in fruit flavors that are bold enough to reset the palate for multiple servings.
Depending on your preference, you can offer your guests a Riesling with innate flavors of apple and honey for the ideal pairing with sweet potatoes and turkey. We enjoy the characteristics of the Chateau Ste Michelle Dry Riesling for Thanksgiving dinner. Guests will easily catch a taste of green apples with a peach-citrus kick.
Pinot Noir Red Wine
Not all families prepare a turkey for Thanksgiving. In fact, some choose to bake a ham for a more smokey flavor. If you have any pork products at your dinner table, remember to pick up a bottle of Pinot Noir.
Pinot Noir is a fantastic red wine option for Thanksgiving with its undertones of cranberries and cherries. Treat your guests with the Castle Rock Willamette Valley Pinot Noir from our online store. This Oregon-based wine is savory with a refreshing taste that prepares the taste buds for chicken or pork.
Sauvignon Blanc Wine
Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp and acidic white wine with a taste of citrus and herbs. The mineral undertones of it make it a must-have for Thanksgiving dinner because your guests can smooth out the robust tastes from potatoes.
Try out the Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc from Marketview Liquor this season. You can add an earthy and lemon aroma filled with subtle peach flavors with this addition to your wine collection.
If you’re searching for a tasty dessert wine, fortified options are your best route. These wines feature additives such as distilled grape spirits that work to pair with desserts.
We suggest placing an order for the Montevina Terra D’oro Zinfandel Port. This Port-style wine is rich and sweet, and the dark chocolate and blackberry flavors match well with pumpkin pies and other sweets.
