Thanksgiving Food & Wine Pairings

One of the best things about the Holiday Season is the gathering of friends & family around a bountiful table of food & wine.  When it comes to pairing wine with Thanksgiving dishes, there is no wrong or right pairing.  Here are a few guidelines that can help accentuate the flavors of your dishes & ignite your palate.

Turkey-Brut Rosé sparkling wine acts as a palate cleanser to awaken juicy meat flavors, while light fruitiness of the wine balances heavy game notes.

Stuffing-Riesling with it’s green apple, citrus flavors and minerality, brings to life the toasted stuffing with celery and onion.

Cranberries-Syrah spice, dark fruit flavors and mild tannin help balance the tartness of the berries.

Sweet Potatoes-Pinot Gris helps to lighten the richness of the creamy potatoes and balance the sweetness with bright citrus acidity.

Mashed Potatoes w/ Gravy-Brut Cuvée sparkling wine balances the rich, creamy potatoes and savory gravy with a effervescent lift and dried berry notes.

Buttered Dinner Rolls-Chardonnay toast and creaminess brings out the delicious butter flavor in the rolls.

Pumpkin Pie-Pinot Noir earthiness and spice compliments the sweetness of the pie and accentuates nutmeg flavors.

Chocolate Cream Pie-Port is always a great pairing with chocolate due to the abundance of deep, dark, silky flavors in the match, and chocolate pie is no exception to the rule.

Good luck on your pairings and on behalf of everyone here at Laetitia, we would like to wish you and yours a Happy and Safe Holiday Season!
