Something crisp and refreshing for a savory feast
If you plan on cooking a lot of savory dishes, you need to pair it with a drink that is crisp and refreshing to clear the palate. You can never go wrong with a Pinot Gris as compliments a savory meal to a t.
You can never go wrong with a classic
There is no avoiding this Thanksgiving staple. Chardonnay is a mainstay at a Thanksgiving spread and goes perfectly well with dishes with a nutty and fruity element. The spice balances out with just the right amount of sweetness that goes perfectly with rich dishes.
If you are more into sweeter drinks
If you are on the lookout for a sweet drink to go with your Thanksgiving feast, then you might want to go with a Riesling. This obviously sweet white wine has a citrusy taste with notes of peaches and honey. This drink is available in varying sugar levels so be sure to check the label before purchasing.
You deserve a good Lambrusco
The Lambrusco has gotten a bad rep over the years due to the saturation of badly made versions in the market. Finding a well made lambrusco will definitely transform the way you enjoy your Thanksgiving feast. It is a sweet drink but it is not at all overpowering.
A sign of a good lambrusco is one that exudes earthy berry tones that are dry to the taste so be sure to do a little taste test before committing to an entire bottle.
A rich and earthy drink to cap of a great feast
There are different versions of the Vouvray available - from one that is bone-dry to a more sweeter one. Whichever one you choose, there is an earthy yet sweet complexity that is unique to the Vouvray. It has notes of fruit flavors that gives just the right sweetness without being too noticeable, If you are feeling a bit adventurous, you might even want to try the sparkler version.
