This is a question that is posed every year to those who like wine, those who drink wine, those who make wine and those who sell wine. So to answer a few e-mails that I have received on this issue that haunts the novice in all of us, I have decided tell you my suggestions.
This, honestly is a very easy and straightforward answer to everyone’s dilemma. We all have our favorite side dishes to accompany our Tom the Turkey dinner. Weather if be yams, or Brussel sprouts, or stuffing or creamed corn. We all have a favorite. And we all eat what we like.
So drum roll please….this Thanksgiving, I will be drinking…..what I like. You should do the same.
If you like Zinfandel, drink Zinfandel. If you like Chardonnay, drink Chardonnay. If you don’t like Pinot Noir, don’t drink Pinot Noir. See, its simple. Drink what you like drinking…you cannot go wrong. So bring over your favorite Merlot to Mike & Melissa’s. Or make sure you have plenty of your favorite Riesling on hand for all of your guests.
The only suggestion I would have is for you to bring some local wine. Wine from your neck of the woods!
After Thanksgiving, I will then tell you what I was pouring. I would love to know what you were pouring and what you thought of it…so how about you tell me what you had!
