Thanksgiving Wine Pairing

Thanksgiving is a time to join with family and celebrate with a large feast.  Many of you may have already started preparing the turkey and baking the pies.  Now comes the real question, what type of wine are you going to serve with your Thanksgiving meal?  Seven Springs Winery is here to help, with the perfect Thanksgiving wine pairings!

Turkey and Stuffing

Red wine is the traditional go-to wine for Thanksgiving dinner and our Seven's Red Heaven is the perfect selection!  The refreshing, crisp fruit flavors pair well with the traditional flavors of turkey and stuffing.

Mashed Potatoes

Syrah also pairs well with the herb-infused stuffing and the dark turkey meat, but best of all it compliments the savory taste of the mashed potatoes.  It brings a spicy edge to the table, increasing the complexity, while graciously handling the cornucopia of traditional Thanksgiving flavors.

Green Bean Casserole

The tropical fruit flavors in our light bodied Muscato Sparkling pair well with green beans and squash. Sparkling wines are the perfect go-to wine because of their high acidity and underlying fruit flavors that help cleanse your palate.

Cranberry Sauce

If you're looking for a white wine, our Chardonel is a great choice!  The fruity with toasted oak flavor makes it an excellent companion for cranberry sauce and white turkey meat.

Pumpkin Pie 

For dessert, we suggest either our Vignoles or Spring Fling white wines.  Their fruity, citrus flavors help bolster the pumpkin pie taste.

In the end it all comes down to your preference and that of your guests.  Keep it simple and have at least one red and one white on hand so that your guests can find something they prefer.  Try to avoid super-dry wines, as they can die in the presence of all that fruit, sugar and salt.  Whether you prefer white or red, a Missouri wine with some fruity flavors is the best option for pairing with Thanksgiving dinner. Stop by our Lake of the Ozarks winery today to stock up on wine for the big dinner tomorrow!
