Thanksgiving Wine Recommendations

With Thanksgiving  quickly approaching and you begin to plan your meal, let us help you pair the wine. ~ San Diego Wine & Beer Co. Team

If you are new to wines and are looking for a few suggestions - try a Riesling, to pair nicely with your cranberry sauce and stuffing.  If you prefer a dry white wine then look for a Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris or Sauvignon Blanc. As for reds, starting with a Gamay, Pinot Noir, or Merlot if you do not want anything too complex or full-bodied. If you are looking to turn up the complexity meter, then go with a great California Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah (or Shiraz if its from Australia) or a Zinfandel. Or looking for something to take you from appetizers thru to dessert? A Sparkling wine will add just the right touch!
