- It’s 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 dinner. Also consider an Oregon Pinot Noir.
- Consider All Flavors. If you are putting a Southwestern spin on the meal, consider the spices when choosing the wine. Fuller-bodied white wines (California Chardonnay) or a medium-bodied, oaked red wine can stand up to the spice & buttery mashed potatoes & gravy.
- Bubbles. Don’t shy away from a great sparkling wine like a CA Brut Rosé that can complement the intense flavors. Or consider dry Riesling or Gewürztraminer from Washington or Oregon. The acidity can cut through the richness.
- Stay away from Sweet Wines. Lean toward the drier profile. Satisfy your sweet tooth with the pies, not your wines.
