Thinking Wine for Thanksgiving??
Whether you are having turkey, lamb, beef or fish remember to start with a glass of something you enjoy! Of course for me it will be bubbles, tiny bubbles because it is a great palate cleanser and I love it. In fact sparkling wine pairs with most everything so it is something to start or end every evening with. Once you have enjoyed your glass of choice, you can move onto a wine that is paired with your meal. With turkey I like Chambourcin for a red, with its light tannins and cranberry flavors it is perfect when paired with cranberry sauce and stuffing. And Viognier for a white wine with your turkey because although it is dry it has a lot of fruit flavors which will stand up to sides like sweet potatoes. A rich lamb pairs wonderfully with our Malbec. If you are thinking of having a beef roast, try a heavier red like our Meritage which is a blend of Bordeaux reds. Then for the fish lovers we have our lightly oaked Chardonnay. This Chardonnay also is a huge hit with all your leftovers!
All of us at Corcoran Vineyards wish you and your family a wonderful Thanksgiving.
