Even when the dinner is simple, pairing wine with food can be difficult. Selecting an appropriate wine for a holiday like Thanksgiving, when plates are piled high with main courses and side dishes, can be downright perplexing.
Instead of trying to match wines to specific flavors or cuisines, look for bottles that pair well with a wide range of foods.
It is almost impossible to tell the best wine for anything, but when it comes to Thanksgiving, you'll need wines that will cover the entire meal.
In our experience, drinking what you enjoy is the best option. Remember, you don't need an expensive bottle to celebrate this distinctively American special day.
We have curated some of our best wines for you to consider before Thanksgiving, ranging from budget-friendly options to luxurious delights.

This Chardonnay entices you with aromas of fresh peach, Asian pear, citrus, and honeycomb to delight your senses.
