Choosing a Wine For Your Thanksgiving Feast

The time of year has come where we pull out our stretchy pants, spend time with friends and family, and toast to all of the things we're thankful for. Obviously, we're thankful for good wine, and lots of it! As you're finalizing your Thanksgiving menu don't forget to give some thought to the type of wine you'll be serving. At Seven Springs Winery, we provide you with amazing Missouri wine, so when you're looking for the perfect vino, we can help.

Turkey is a perfect match for wine because it's light enough to pair with white, but flavorful enough to enjoy with a light red - and of course the dark meat is delectable with a dark red. It can be challenging, however, to find the perfect wine for your Thanksgiving dinner because of the smorgas board of foods you may be enjoying. Here are a few ways you can narrow it down and select the best wine for your Thanksgiving meal!

Add Some Sparkle

You can't go wrong with a sparkling wine for your Thanksgiving dinner! It pairs well with turkey and cranberry sauce, and there's just something festive about a chilled, sparkling beverage. At Seven Springs Winery we have two crisp, sparkling wines that would pair wonderful with your feast.

Muscato Sparkling
Brilliant, light straw, tropical fruit & flowers. Light bodied, fruit forward sparkling finish.

Blushing Springs
Sparkling red wine, sweet berry aromas with a semi sweet finish.

Change It Up

You could use the same wine throughout the entire meal, OR, you could serve a different wine with every course. This is obviously a good option, because you don't have to choose just one wine, and you can sample several different ones! Don't know where to start? Our wine menu on our website lists all of our wines, with short descriptions of each one. You can get a good idea of what would taste best with which part of your meal and wow your guests with your variety!

Guests Choice

What do you do if your mom likes bold reds, your uncle likes white, and your sister only drinks sweet? Buy ALL the wine! You think we're kidding? One of the best ways to make sure everyone has what they want at dinner is by providing the wine that your guests like, and letting them pair it with their meal. This is an easy way to pair wine, and certainly the most successful.

End With Dessert

Obviously you'll end your meal with dessert, but why don't you choose a dessert wine to seal the deal. A fresh, sweet wine is a great way to leave a perfect taste in your guests mouth as they finish savoring your impeccable meal. If you don't know where to start, we have two reds that would make a delectable combination with your desserts.

Spring Red
Semi sweet red with hint of black cherry and a velvet finish.

Seven’s Red Heaven
Beautiful deep plum color with refreshing, Crisp fruit flavors & a distinct sweet finish.

Be Thankful For Wine

While there are many things to be thankful for, like your family, friends, good food, and a great place to celebrate - we think good wine should make the list! Come out to the winery, grab several bottles of the best wine at the Lake of the Ozarks and celebrate! All of the staff at Seven Springs Winery hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and we'll see you when you get back!
