Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and of course, amazing food. If you’re looking to take your Thanksgiving dinner to the next level this year, consider serving one or some of the following wines.
My name is Mark. I’m a certified sommelier with 10+ years of wine industry experience. And I’m here to list my best and favorite wines to serve with a Thanksgiving dinner. I’ve personally tried these pairings before, so I’ve done the trial and error for you.
Here are some of my wine recommendations for you to try.
You should never need a reason to drink Champagne! But if you do need one, it’s always a perfect pairing to celebrate any special occasion with friends and family, especially Thanksgiving.
This popular and accessible Champagne is a great pick because of its high acidity and effervescence, which is perfect for cutting through the heavy dishes often served on Thanksgiving, like fried turkey, gravy, or creamy green bean casserole.
Other Champagne Recommendations:
Best Premium: Ruinart Champagne N.V.
Best Rosé Champagne: Laurent-Perrier Brut Cuvée Champagne Rosé N.V.
Most Popular: Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label N.V.
Pro Tip: Vintage vs. Non Vintage (N.V.) Champagne
Vintage Champagne is made exclusively from grapes harvested in the same year, and it must be aged for a minimum of 3 years. It tends to be more costly than non-vintage Champagne but also has a longer shelf life. Non-vintage Champagne is created from a blend of grapes gathered in different years and typically spends 15 months aging.
