Thanksgiving weekend is coming up and is truly a special holiday. It’s a celebration of close family and friends. We typically take this time to reflect and share our appreciation and gratitude for the good fortune that has come to us. Thanksgiving is also synonymous with stuffing our bellies with sumptuous food and wine! If you’re hosting this year’s dinner we’ve got some great food and wine pairings for your dinner!
En Primeur Winery Series South Africa Sauvignon Blanc paired with garden greens
Aromas of apple, lemon, and kiwi on the nose and hints of lemon and herbaceous flavours on the palate. Expect a zesty finish to this
Don’t forget to get your greens in! The light and crisp flavours compliment your greens beautiful, whether you’re having a salad or green beans.
En Primeur Winery Series Chile Merlot paired with mashed potatoes
A classic wine with a rich aromatic bouquet of fresh red cherries, toasted oak, and herbs. Expressive flavours of dark ripe plums, berries, and silky tannins on the palate.
Comfort food like mashed potatoes is accentuated with the silky fruits that Merlot has offers.
Cru Select California Style Pinot Noir paired with Thanksgiving turkey
The Cru Select California Style Pinot Noir features a bouquet of rich tobacco and ripe dark cherries. The, hint of oak and velvety tannins on the palate are a pleasant surprise.
The acidity in Pinot Noir & plentiful fruit intensity makes it a perfect pairing with a sumptuous Turkey.
We hope you enjoy these pairings! Happy Thanksgiving!
