As Thanksgiving quickly approaches many are preparing to have a special dinner with family and friends to mark the holiday and show their appreciation for their blessings. Whether you are hosting or just attending one of these dinners the chances are paring a fine wine with the meal is on your mind if you are a wine enthusiast.
For the host who is planning the meal or someone who just wants to share a good wine with alongside the delicious appetizers on the cheese boards choosing just the right one can be difficult. At these events there is such a wide array of foods as well as a diverse group of tastes making the wine selection a challenge.
Many wine experts suggest that the wine served at Thanksgiving should be a light wine so that it does not contrast with the heavy meal that is being served. Wines that are lighter bodied and lower in acidity will complete the heavy foods as well as the foods that are high in acid such as cranberry sauce.
With a large variety of white as well as red wines and evening sparkling and rose wines available that fit into this light category there is still plenty of choice for a wine that will compliment your exact menu for the holiday.
