Thanksgiving Food And Wine Pairings
Guide And Suggestions
With Our Quini Reviews


 Sparkling wine is a great aperitif to sip while you wait for the turkey to finish cooking. It adds a celebratory note to the meal and goes well with starters like soup and salad. Sparkling also works well with desserts. Try an Italian Proseco with Fruit pies.
Prima Perla Prosecco Italy 750ml $9.99

Brut D'Argent France:
         Blanc de Blancs 100% Chardonnay 750ml $12.99
         Rose 100% Pinot Noir 750ml $12.99

Laurent Perrier Brut NV Champagne France 750ml $49.99
91 Points and Top Value | Wine Spectator Dec 2015
"Elegant, with notes of boysenberry, lemon zest, brioche and hazelnut." 
Available in 2 glass sets!!!
Sauvignon Blanc
Pairs with everything from butternut-squash soup to green salad to turkey with a dressing made of briny oysters and herbs. Even notoriously tough-to-pair Brussels sprouts will sing with Sauvignon Blanc. Also for contrast and richness of cream sauces and dressings Look for California or Washington st Sauvignon Blancs as they tend to have more bright citrus flavor profiles.
Cono Sur Chile 750ml $9.99
         La Chablisienne Saint Bris 750ml $12.99

         Serge Laloue Sancerre 750ml $19.99
Pinot Grigio
Is a good aperitif and goes well with roasted turkey. You can start a meal with a crisp Italian Pinot Grigio. If you want more fruit profile with your meal try Pinot Grigio/Gris from California or Washington. Apple and pear flavors will shine bright with those.
         Lechtaler 750ml $12.99
         St Michael-Eppan Italy 750ml $14.99
       La Crema Pinot Gris 750ml $18.99

Tends to have a spicy/lychee character that sets it up for cranberry and pumpkin or butternut squash soup flavored with baking spices. Also works well with apple/spice desserts.
         Diehl Germany 750ml $14.99
 With their tropical fruit, citrus, green-apple, pear and mineral notes, work with almost any Thanksgiving dish.  You can also pair a sweeter Riesling with apple desserts.
         Clean Slate Germany 750ml $10.99
        Anew 750ml $9.99
         Brooks 750ml $19.99

  A big, buttery chardonnay can complement the roasted, smoky flavors of squash, chestnuts and pecan stuffing. An unoaked Chardonnay with make apple desserts shine! Nut bases dessert will work well with high  oaked Chardonnays 
         Avalon California 750ml $11.99
         Broadside Wild Ferment 750ml $16.99

        Kim Crawford Wild Grace 750ml $29.99
Syrah and Zinfandel
Has the spice, dark fruit and berries to bring out the best in cranberry sauces also works well with dark meats. Select your wine based on spicy or fruity versions of the grape.
Summerland Trio 750ml $29.99
Bogle Old Vine CA 750ml $11.99
Klinker Brick Old Vine 750ml $19.99
Midnight  750ml $25.99
Pinot Noir
Is the single best wine to choose for Thanksgiving. It has tangy red fruit of strawberry and cherry, with nice acidity. Pinot Noir will support most things on the Thanksgiving table without overpowering them. If your looking for one wine to serve to welcome guests and serve threw a cherry dessert Pinot Noir works!
         Route 152 750ml $12.99

         Alto Limay Joven 750ml $14.99
         Summerland Santa Barbara 750ml $24.99
Thanksgiving is the week Beaujolais Nouveauis released. This Gamay based wine is a great with Thanksgiving foods. Light weight and good fruit. Explore other reds from Beaujolais France and the Gamay grape and you will shine with your family and friends.
         George Duboeuf Nouveau 2015 750ml $11.99
         Louis Jadot Burgundy Hills Pinot Noir/Gamay 750ml $13.99
         Domaine De Colette 750ml $17.99
Port or a dessert wine
 For very sugary desserts work great, as long as the wine is as sweet or sweeter than the confection. That's important because a less-sweet wine will taste thin, tart or even bitter. The key is to pair the wines flavor profile with that of the desserts. For nut based desserts try 10 or 20 year tawny ports for a special treat!


        Warres Warrior 750ml $17.99
         Cockburns 20 Year Tawny 375ml $39.99
And Dont Forget The Rose!!!
Rose wines are PERFECT for turkey and all the side dishes! If you feel that rose wines are to casual then drink it with leftovers. Rose is Dry not to sweet and VERY refreshing.
Mulderbosch 2015 750ml $12.99
