Fall Pairings

The leaves are almost gone and the air is getting crisp, so usually that means we start to think about drinking more red wine than white. The safe bet for all is that white wine goes with white meat and red wine with red meats. Correct?? Yes and no. It really depends on what seasonings and/or herbs you are putting with that meat. we start thinking turkey for Thanksgiving, remember that Chambourcin goes awesome with all your feathered friends; quail, duck, chicken & turkey. And of course Chardonnay is a great white wine option when you add all the fixin's of mashed potatoes and gravy.

Two options to think about this month is a light red wine like Chambourcin or Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, lightly oaked, if at all.

What do you pair with your turkey...
