Hi all! I was searching for some suggestions on wine to serve with Thanksgiving and wanted to bring this post back in case others were looking also.

Any new suggestions?

It comes in a bigger bottle Wink YUMMMMMMM!!!!

That sounds like a good one, Shane, I'll have to check it out! We love our dopplebock's here! We'll be traveling for TG, so our task is to bring the wine. I picked up 8 bottles at Trader Joe's, everything from Chard to Zin to match the tastes of the whole crew. I just love that you can buy a nice bottle of wine for 5 bucks at TJ's! (They carry a Malbec that I just love, but of course I can't remember the name right now.) We'll be bringing a few winter lagers and pumpkin ales, too!

I'm doing a Christmas Eve blend from Duplin county, its their holiday blush. I am also serving Hatteras Red, which is a sweet muscadine red, and Carlos Red a dry muscadine red with more body them the Hatteras. All Duplin county blends.

I have no idea what else we'll have... someone always brings a bottle... accept my father since he's in AA and we'll all have to listen to the preaching about sins of the bottle. Chances are, I will toast each one of his speeches! LOL

The cook gets the first drink. I also use whatever red we have on hand to add to my cranberry sauce, so that's when the bottle gets opened! (I don't care if its 10am!!!)

It wouldn't happen to be "La Boca" would it?

well there will be a least a bottle of champagne...usually opened prior to sitting down to the meal Very Happy

i'll probably bring a bottle of red, Simple Red (is the name of the wine) from St.Julian's Winery in MI....i guess its a blend - we still have about 7 or 8 bottles (so I guess i'll share with the fam Wink ). and i just bought a couple of bottles of vodka for my mom....she's not a wine drinker...so maybe we will be trying those too Very Happy Shocked

Cara, Rieslings are always nice. You can get a dryer one for cheese or app course plus dinner and go for a sweeter one for dessert. Mirassou has a great one that is semi-dry, not too dry and not too sweet.

Also, I just recently had a Gewurztraminer (Fetzer) that I liked really well and thought it would go well with a traditional Thanksgving meal.

If you want a really nice, sweet dessert wine, try Muscato D’Asti, San Giulio, Italy it is one of my favs also

Ok, I realize those are all white, but don't count out the reds, it's the new millennium and you CAN serve red with white meat LOL Looking back over my notes, I tried a Shiraz, Barossa (Peter Lehmann) which would go well with dinner plus go well with chocolate desserts.

I had a red and a white. White Cat from the Finger Lakes for the white and Montmorency cherry from a local vineyard (Nissley's) for the red.
