Perrine’s Pick: 2017 Les Capriades, Loire Valley, France $28.99

“My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the prep of all the delicious sides. The corn souffle is my personal favorite. Les Capriades is the perfect morning wine to enjoy as the pressure of hosting and cooking goes up, this wine chills you down.” Perfect balance of juicy red cherry & strawberry with tart cranberry flavors and a dry finish.┬áThis petillant natural sparkling wine pairs with everything!

Beth’s Pick: 2015 Brooks Winery Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley, OR $24.99

“My favorite Thanksgiving dish is dark meat turkey with homemade cranberry sauce – it also makes the best leftover sandwiches! And this wine is the perfect pairing for both.” Juicy berry and cherry flavors with vibrant acidity and long finish. The red fruit notes accentuate the cranberry sauce flavors and the acidity works beautifully with the fatty dark meat.

Linda’s Pick: 2016 Chateau des Jacques “Clos des Thorins” Moulin-a-Vent, Beaujolais, France $39.99

“Delicious and fresh!! Pairs perfectly with my favorite holiday dish: Apple & Sausage Sage Stuffing.” Flavors of tart cranberry, sour cherry, thyme and savory herbs. The perfect compliment to any Thanksgiving meal.

Marcela’s Pick: 2011 Domaine Schlumberger Pinot Gris, Alsace, France $29.99

“This Pinot Gris is more luscious, richer style that will pair perfectly with any pie. Especially my favorite – the Pear Almond Tart that craves the sweetness from this wine.” Notes of golden apple, orange blossom, and a hint of honey.
