The Thanksgiving table provides the perfect occasion to drink soft and approachable reds, but don't limit these wines just for turkey. Pork roasts along with such fruits of the sea as swordfish and salmon also pair well.
Not every Thanksgiving revolves around turkey. Large roasts or game birds frequently find themselves on the table calling for richly textured red wines. These selections will also work well with richer stuffings and the dark meat of the bird.
Savvy wine enthusiasts have long known that pink wines are not just for the summer months. With sophisticated flavors that marry with a wide range of cuisines and styles, dry roses can be enjoyed all year round.
Sweet wines are too often an overlooked segment of the world of wine. This holiday usually ends in a smorgasboard of sweets and is the perfect opportunity to see how well these different wines work with desserts. Or, enjoy them on their own if you're too full!
