Thanksgiving 2019 Postmortem

30 Nov

The parade, the big meal, and sadly the family have come and gone. We’re now full on into the Holiday season, whatever you might celebrate.

 

Do you postmortem your meal and wine? I do.  I always, always do.

(Link to my annual Thanksgiving post from this year, if you need a refresher!)

 

So, short and quick, here are my game day highlights:

1) The sparkling wine is the big crowd pleaser.
Trevari’s Tasting Room Sparkling Rosé and Blanc de Noirs were a HUGE win at the table.
Their Blanc de Blanc is a STEAL at $15/bottle for a sparkling wine that everyone will enjoy.

 

 

2. The Acquiesce Grenache Rosé was the favorite for those who wanted a lighter and refreshing wine.

 

 

3.  The Rivers-Marie 2015 Sonoma Pinot Noir was the favorite for those who preferred a red wine.

 

 

For my email, Facebook, and Twitter folks who reached out (requesting wines for their meals with origins outside the USA) they had positive responses from my personal suggestions of: 

France: Alsace Sparkling Rosé, Chablis, Premiere Cru Beaujolais, Bordeaux blends.

Italy: Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, and Aldo Adige Pinot Grigio

Spain: Albariño, Graciano, Garnacha, and Tempranillo

Portugal: Viñho Verde

Australia: Sauvignon Blanc

New Zealand: Pinot Noir

Germany & Austria: Rielsing, Zweigelt, Grüner Veltliner, and Müller Thurgau

 

What were your Thanksgiving Day wine highlights? Did you have any failures? (I have had some over the years. We live and learn!)

Please feel free to share & comment below.  Happy Holidays!

 

à votre santé!!
