What wine is best for a Thanksgiving dinner?!

Question: What wine is best for a Thanksgiving dinner!?
Really depends on the way the Turkey is cooked

I would always go for a Red Wine!. Just do what ever complements the food better!. You want Harmony with all of your food not conflict!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Traditionally turkey goes with a white but people no longer follow the traditional standards!. I still do a lot, and given that I would go with a Riesling or Pino Grigio!. If you want mildly sweet where you can drink it a little quickly to wash the food down go with Riesling!.

You can drink red!. I'm not knocking the other answerers because people have changed!. You can get a box of Fish Eye Riesling for like $15!. Or, get the staple Lambrusco Bianca or D'Oro in that jug that you can reuse as a gas can (or knock out your irritating relatives with)!.

Get a bottle of red if you want and some white, to see what you like!. I wouldn't get Shiraz b/c that is more for pizza!. And Cab Sauvg is as well!. Try a merlot!.

Or, meet yourself in the middle and get a white zinfandel!. That's half red half white!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Turkey has a slightly sweet meat, this allows it to pair well with a variety of wines, both red and white!. But for Thanksgiving the traditional side dishes tend to be rich, needing a wine that will stand up to them this makes a wine paring more difficult!. For red wine a fruity California Zinfandel would be my first choice!. for white a German or Austrian Riesling!. I would get a couple bottles of each, and let my guests drink whichever they prefer!. If you want a rose' try a Brut Rose' Champagne!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Well depends on two inportant types of meat you may be having ok!.!.!.
If your sering traditional Turkey ------Then White Wine or a clear Zinfindale wine!.

If your serving a Ham!.!.-------Red or Burgandy Wine taste best with porks or beef's!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

A full bodied chardonnay or a nice Pinot Noir from the Central Coast (Santa Barbara county) would be very nice!. That's what I'll be serving!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

How about going with Hot Buttered Rum instead or maybe Cranberry Margarita!. For recipes see below!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Skip the wine and pull out the vodka!. A nice martini goes very well with the holidays

Red, inexpensive and lots of it!. Feliz dia de graciasWww@FoodAQ@Com

For sure red wine Www@FoodAQ@Com
