Is Turkey calling your name?? Family and friends are coming and you need to prepare a feast...
One of the most popular red wines that is paired with a turkey dinner is Pinot Noir, but since it doesn't really grow here on the East Coast, what will you choose now?? How about a Corcoran Chambourcin??
Chambourcin is a French-American hybrid grape, light in body with bright cherry-berry and cranberry flavors, perfect for your holiday meal.
Come wine with us at our Waterford location or at Hunters Run Wine Barn on Route 9, we both are offering the Corcoran 2009 Chambourcin.
Happy Thanksgiving!
