Thanksgiving Wine Recommendations

This Thanksgiving, whether your cuisine remains the traditional turkey, or if you cook a bit more adventurously for your guests, wine pairings for your holiday meal should not be overlooked. This year, we recommend three of our New Mexico wines to pair with your dishes.

For starters, turkey lovers can do no wrong by pairing their bird with a quality Chardonnay. Our crisp Chardonnay offers a balanced blend of acidity, with just enough flavors of oak and butter to work with your bird, no matter how its prepared.

Serving something a bit less traditional like a prime rib or peppered steaks? Syrah is our choice! Even if you wanted to pair this with a turkey entree, the spiciness of Syrah will compliment meats peppery dry rubs for a greater impact.

When it comes to dessert, a sweet wine like Travelers Red will work with your pumpkin pie, not outshine it. It offers a balance  of being sweet, but not too sweet! If you want to shake it up a bit, swap it out for Sunset Rosé.

From our family to yours, we wish you a very happy Thanksgiving. Cheers!
