Thanksgiving is next week and the holidays continue moving through! It's a very exciting and busy time. So your favorite pocket sommelier is back in action. I've got 25 wines all categorized for you for Thanksgiving.
As you'll note, there are some categories that have more recs than others, that's because those are the wines BEST for the holiday. Enjoy my list, I hope this helps you with your holiday shopping!
1. NV Bisol Jeio Prosecco Brut- $14.99
Delicious Prosecco is a great way to go this holiday season because it is bubbly and refreshing with just enough sugar to pair with anything on the table.
2. NV Mionetto Prosecco Brut– $11.99
Another delicious and widely available Prosecco that will be a nice way to start off the evening. Also a great Prosecco if you wish to make a Prosecco based cocktail like Aperol Spritz or a Cranberry spritz.
3. 2020 Carboniste Gomes Vineyard Sparkling Albariño Extra Brut- $24.99
One of my new favorite sparkling wines. An unusual variety to make sparkling, but this Albariño is exceptional. This will pair nicely with your salads and stuffing as well as veggies and turkey. Give this a try with the corn bread too!
4. NV Lucien Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace Brut Rose- $20.99
Crémant is Champagne's lesser known brother. But being so close to the Champagne region, this Alsacian pinot noir based brut rosé is a real treat. This is an excellent wine with soft bubbles and a lot of personality. Pair this with your poultry and cranberry sauce.
5. 2014 Graham Beck Methode Cap Classique Brut Rose- $24.99
MCC (Methode Cap Classique) wines are in my opinion--easily--some of the most underrate wines. Incredible vineyards cover the valleys of South African wine country and the wines they produce are stunning and delicious. This brut rosé has a lot of bright fruit notes, bolder bubbles, but a very inviting presence. A great selection for your meal this year.
6. NV Schramsberg Mirabelle Brut Rose- $24.99
Schramsberg is an everlasting gem in the Sonoma Valley. This delicious Brut rosé is classic with fine bubbles, beautiful floral and fruit forward aromatics and a nice crisp finish.
7. NV Filipa Pato 3B Rosé Baga Espumante- $18
A unique and fun wine to bring to the table this Rosé of Baga is dark and luscious. An excellent addition the table--think "dryer Lambrusco." A perfect pair with both your white and dark meats without forgetting veggies and stuffing.
1. 2019 Chalk Hill Sonoma Coast Chardonnay- $17
Classic example of Sonoma Chardonnay this Chalk Hill Estate chardonnay has a hint of creaminess and is quite textured without failing to show a crisp flavor on the end. An excellent wine to help transition between gravy and vegetables.
