You haven’t bought your wine for Thanksgiving yet and now you’re panicking aren’t you? Well you don’t have. Even if you know next to nothing about wine there are plenty of safe bets out there amongst the nationally distributed wines for you to make a great choice and bring a wine to dinner that will make most everyone happy.
There are two keys to wine pairing success. The first is the science and art of food and wine pairing. We do this behind black curtains in secret societies that require masks to be worn at all times, though pants curiously enough are optional.
There is also another strategy to take when one is in dire need of wine. Buy what you like, or more appropriately if you’re a guest, buy what the host likes. We may not be intimately familiar with our host’s palate but consider this. Chardonnay is the most popular white wine in America. Killer choice for Thanksgiving too. Who knew? So relax and take a look at some widely available wines that will be just perfect tomorrow with the turkey, or whenever you or your host gets around to drinking it.
