Thanksgiving Wines


Thanksgiving Wines

            Turkey and all the trimmings provide the backdrop for a multitude of wines.  Champagne or white wine for the hors d'oeuvres or antipasto, a good Italian red for the lasagna (optional--replace with  your traditional favorite), turkey complements almost any wine--we like Pinot Noir or Chardonnay.  Amarone or Port with the cheese course and Muscat, Late Harvest Riesling, Sauternes or Asti for dessert!  Here are some of our recommendations:

Case
N.V. Gruet Brut $15.99 $173.00
                       Let's face it, Thanksgiving is an American holiday, so let's drink one of America's best sparkling wines.  Crisp, dry, excellent mousse.  Stock up for the Holidays!    
N.V. Riondo Prosecco Frizzante $14.99 $162.00
                     As far as we are concerned, the best aperitif--light, dry with a delicate sparkle.  Try it and it will become one of your favorites as well    
2016 Rocca Bianca Pinot Grigio $8.99 $97.00
                     At our house, the appetizers are many and varied--shrimp, scallops, frito misto and other Italian delicacies call for a versatile aperitif wine. This extraordinary Pinot Grigio fills the bill.  It's become one of SOHO's best selling wines.    
2014 Frescobaldi Nipozzano Chianti Riserva $21.99 $235.00
                    One of  our favorite Italian wines!  Great with the lasagna or the turkey itself--a best buy!    
2016 Joel Gott California Zinfandel $17.99 $195.00
                    The robust flavors of turkey and all the trimmings lend themselves to the spicy zest of Gott's luscious zin.  Dig in!    
2012 City Winery "Music City" Pinot Noir $29.99 $324.00
                    Drink Local--sort of!  Made just a few blocks away by City Winery on Varick Street,  using some of the best grapes from the Sonoma Coast.  Perfect throughout your Thanksgiving meal!     
2017 Angeline Sonoma-Mendocino Pinot Noir $15.99 $173.00
                    We highly recommend this Pinot Noir from one of California's winemaking pioneers, Martin Ray.  To get a wine of this quality for this price is remarkable.

                    From the Wilamette Valley, here is another outstanding Pinot Noir which will perfectly complement your Thanksgiving feast.    
2016 Simi Sonoma Chardonnay $16.99 $183.00
                    The vineyard for Simi Sonoma Chardonnay reflects Sonoma County's diversity of flavors. Some contribute structure, others offer elegance and richness.  For those who prefer white wine with their white meat!    
2016 Edna Valley Chardonnay $14.99 $162.00
                   Our favorite California chardonnay, and a great value.  An all purpose white!     
1994 Offley Boa Vista Port $60.00  
                   Nothing is more festive during the Holidays than a good glass of Port after dinner.  This is a mature Port from a great vintage, at an unbelievably low price!
