Which Wine for Thanksgiving?? Wine and turkey go hand and wing!

Which wine for Thanksgiving dinnerI like a glass of wine with my Thanksgiving dinner but I'm always confused about which one to get.  I just read an article that resolved all those problems.  The answer is as simple as - what do you like?

There's a good match for every taste.  Turkey can go hand and wing with just about any wine you prefer white, red or rose.

If you and your guest prefer dry white Thanksgiving 2009wines then Chardonnay is a good pick.  Sauvignon Blanc or a White Burgundy are all good all around choices.  They pair well with everything from green bean casserole to your dressing. 

If your guest prefer sweeter wines White Zinfandel is a good all purpose wine.  You could also head to the German wine isle.  A Riesling will pair well with any Thanksgiving feast.  I learned quite a bit about Rieslings from this article.  If the label says kabinett, the wine is made from the earliest harvest and will be a little dryer.  A Spatlese is a bit sweeter but still retains the dryness of the wine.  An Auslese will be even sweeter.  You might want to save this wine for dessert. 

If red wines are normally your favorite, Pinot Noir is the perfect red wine for the holiday meal.  Pinot Noir is more robust than white wine and will blend well with the entire meal.  Normally red wines are not chilled but in this article it said to serve it slightly chilled.

My favorite white wine Pinot Grigio was not mentioned in this article but it did say the perfect wine is what you like.  Whatever wine you choose/or not I hope you have a wonderful holiday meal!
