- It is an American Holiday, Choose American Wine! Better yet choose Arizona wines. Our go-to wine is a Grenache. The ripe berries and soft tannins make it a perfect match for the richness of the typical turkey spread. Also, consider an Oregon Pinot Noir.
- Think About Flavor Profile. If you are putting a Southwestern spin on the meal, consider the spices when choosing the wine. Fuller-bodied white wines (California Chardonnay or an oaked Viognier) can stand up to the spice and buttery mashed potatoes and gravy.
- Bubbles. Do not shy away from a great sparkling wine like a California Brut Rosé that can complement the intense flavors. Or consider a dry Riesling or Gewürztraminer wines from Washington or Oregon. The acidity can cut through the richness.
- Stay Away from Sweet Wines. Lean toward the drier wine profile. Satisfy your sweet tooth with the homemade pies, not your wine.
