Perfect Thanksgiving Wine Choices
When it comes to Thanksgiving, picking the perfect wine to compliment the turkey and all of the trimmings can seem a bit daunting. We’ve got you covered with three superb Adobe Road Winery bottles for your holiday table.
Sparkle this Thanksgiving
A little glitz, a little glamor and a lot of bubbles. What a way to start your Thanksgiving celebration! Our very limited 2016 Adobe Road Winery Sparkling Rosé is bursting with luscious red fruit, texture and acidity. But don’t put it away after the appetizers have disappeared -- this is a wine that will be great throughout the meal.
Chardonnay -- Wonderful Versatility and Acidity
For the white wine drinkers, our new 2015 vintage Adobe Road Winery Chardonnay from Sangiacomo’s south vineyard in the Petaluma Gap is a surprisingly good match for the Thanksgiving table. This wine pairs nicely with the bold flavors of the day, adding the crisp acidity that teams up so well with turkey, potatoes and stuffing, as well as with those sweeter foods like candied yams.
Pinot Noir -- the Thanksgiving Wine Standard
Wine lovers adore pinot noir’s bright red berry notes and hints of spice. This wine is the classic pick to pair with all of the traditional Thanksgiving favorites, from the ever popular creamy mashed potatoes and casseroles, to white and dark meat turkey. And cranberries? Perfection. The pinot noir grape really sings in our 2016 Adobe Road Winery Green Valley of the Russian River Valley Big Pig Vineyard Pinot Noir and that’s what makes it so special -- and good. Fresh raspberry and cherry pie flavors play a central role.
