Thanksgiving Dinner Wines


Canadian Thanksgiving is less than one week away, which is a good reminder to go purchase a turkey for next weekends dinner. We're not here to remind you about all the work that still needs to be done. Instead we are here to talk about why we love this holiday so much. We decided to get in the festive mood by visiting Richmond Country Farms to pick out a pumpkin! We had a great afternoon riding in a tractor drawn carriage, exploring the corn maze and sorting through rows of pumpkins. 


Our fall adventure inspired us to start thinking about why we love Thanksgiving. If you ask anyone what they are looking forward to most about Thanksgiving, without a doubt they would probably say the food. Some may answer spending time with loved ones or going to the pumpkin patch, but we all know that dinner is the first thing on their mind. Just the thought of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and cranberries has us counting down the minutes till October 12th. 


Most Thanksgiving dinners are now potluck style (because who has time to make 50 different dishes), which means it is necessary to contribute in order to get your turkey fix. If your cooking skills are anything like ours, you most likely signed up to bring a bottle of wine. This may leave you wondering, "what wine's pair well with turkey dinner?" Instead of wandering aimlessly through the wine aisles, we are here to help you find the perfect crowd pleasing wines. So don't panic, Emily has rounded up some great suggestions for a white, a red and a rose to go with your holiday dinner! 




Dry Riesling
We brought the Quail's Gate 2014 Dry Riesling to the pumpkin patch with us. Riesling is an easy drinking wine and is a great option to bring if you don't know someones taste in wine. This is a great example of a unique style of riesling. Many of you know them to be sickly sweet and almost syrupy, but not this one! It has freshness of green apples and lime with a lovely dry finish.

Pinot Noir
I love pinot noir! I would suggest picking up a nice pinot noir from California for your dinner. They are usually quite soft with balanced acidity and easy drinking red fruit flavours. I recently tasted the Rivers-Marie 2012 pinot noir from Sonoma and was really impressed. Pinot noir's tend to have softer tannins and a nice light body, kind of like turkey, what do you know! 

Chardonnay
Choose a chardonnay with a some oak flavours and you will have yourself a wine with a round mouthfeel and slight creaminess. These characteristics will pair perfectly with mashed potatoes and gravy. I recommend the Rodney Strong Chardonnay from Sonoma or a local Okanagan Valley spin on an oaked chard and pick up Church and State’s Chardonnay. 

Rosé
A crisp and dry rosé is an excellent contrast to the otherwise warm, rich and heavy food that you might enjoy over dinner. The high acidity will accompany all of your dishes in perfect form and leave your mouth watering for another glass. 

Last month while visiting family in the Okanagan Valley I had the opportunity of tasting wines with the Rick, owner and self declared head weed picker of Sage Hills Vineyard in Summerland. Their syrah-rosé absolutely blew me away! Made in a Provence style, it’s dry with white pepper and red fruit flavours on the palate. To top it all off, they’re a 100% sustainable and eco-friendly winery! Impress dinner guests and bring this environmentally friendly wine to your dinner.


Here are a few more suggestions of some great wines that pair well with Thanksgiving dinner:

· Zinfandel 
· Barbera
· Gamay
· Primitivo 
· Amarone
· Albarino 
· Vioginer 
· Sauv blanc
· Pinot blanc 

This Thanksgiving, we wish you a holiday filled with family and friends, laughter and love, but most importantly, a ton of good wine!
