Thanksgiving means turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and other great things to eat and all that good food deserves something good to drink. Fortunately, your local wine seller has plenty of options for Thanksgiving Day.
To make the decision even easier, Patch spoke to Karl Hansen, three-year owner of Westhampton Fine Wine, who provided a list of popular wines that pair well with a turkey dinner.
1. Domaine De Moulin, a sparkling wine from France, that Hansen says has a light, nutty flavor with a hint of green apple. "It is very refreshing," he said. Retail: $24.00
2. Afros Vinho Verde 2010 vintage from North Portugal. Hansen said the wine pairs well with poultry and fish. Retail: $13.99
3. Petit-Chablis, 2010 vintage, a french wine of the Burgundy region. Hansen said it is a perfect Thanksgiving wine. Retail: $16.99
4. Heron Pinot Noir, 2011 vintage, of California. Hansen said it is a fruitful wine that is wonderfully balanced. "It has got great legs on it," he said. Retail $13.99
5. Sep Pinot Noir, 2010 vintage, also of California. Hansen said it is a lighter-style that is fruitful and long-lasting. "It has a wonderful balance of acidity and tannin," said Hansen. Retail $29.99.
