With Thanksgiving coming up in a matter of days everyone is making their plans on where they will be and what will be on the menu. While there is much talk about what wine goes best with traditional Thanksgiving foods such as turkey and cranberry sauce but what about what wine to serve with dessert?
If you ask many people a Thanksgiving meal is not complete without a pumpkin pie to top off the feast with family and friends. While the general rule of thumb when paring wine with dessert is the wine should be sweeter than the dish this is good advice to follow with pumpkin pie.
Since pumpkin pie is not only sweet but spicy as well paring it with a Madeira wine is a good choice. This robust and very sweet wine is a perfect compliment to pies and especially pumpkin. It also holds up well in transit due to its stability making it easy to pack along in wine bags with little fear of it not being optimal for serving along with your dessert this year. Bring along this fine wine for a perfect end to your Thanksgiving feast.
