A question many people have this time of year is: Which wine is a good choice to go with the Thanksgiving Turkey?
The good news is you have a few choices and can let your own preference guide your final decision. Turkey actually will go with a number of different wines and I would say that if you have a favorite, just go with it. Have fun and enjoy, it’s the holidays.
But if you’re just not sure what to serve, here are a few suggestions.
- Pinot Noir: This is the first wine that comes to mind for me when I think turkey. If you ask me, it’s the perfect choice. It’s not too heavy, it’s complex and it adds a bit of extra holiday spice to the table. I recently completed a series of pinot noir reviews where you can surely find a good pick for your holiday table.
- Chardonnay: If you’re a fan of chardonnay, it’s a great choice for turkey. Cook up that Butterball turkey and wash it down with a buttery chardonnay. Lucky for you, its another varietal that I recently completed a series of reviews on where you can find some good, cheap chardonnay.
- Champagne: It’s light and refreshing and helps the dynamic flavors on the Thanksgiving table just explode. I think champagne is often overlooked as a dinner wine. Give it a shot. Unfortunately, I don’t have any ratings on champagne available on this site yet. (added to the to-do list)
Those are my suggestions. I hope they help you have a fabulous Thanksgiving. Cheers!
