Chaddsford's Guide to Thanksgiving

Chaddsford's Guide to Thanksgiving

A successful Thanksgiving includes great company, delicious dishes, and the right wines with your meal. 

With a decadent variety of flavors and contrasting textures, wine pairing can be a daunting task. Keep your glasses full from the toast to after-dinner drinks with our suggestions down below! 

Kick off with a Toast

Raise your glasses to loved ones near and far with the light and refreshing '18 Sparkling White. Keep this wine handy for festive appetizers and a mouthwatering charcuterie board. 

Turkey Time

During the main course, offer guests the option of red or white. Our bold and bright '18 Traminette, is the perfect counterpart to Thanksgiving spices. Crisp acidity makes this a food-friendly wine that can handle some of the heartiest dishes on your menu. If guests are partial to red, pop the cork on '17 Artisan Series Noiret. Light, structured tannins and big jammy fruit lend to an excellent pairing with roasted turkey. 

Dessert

If you have room to spare, enjoy a chilled glass of Spiced Apple alongside the classic pumpkin, pecan and apple pies. For a finishing touch, add a large scoop of vanilla ice cream. End the night on the couch with a cozy blanket and a warm mug of Spiced Apple garnished with cinnamon sticks, an orange peel and apple slicesWith comforting fall flavors, this mulled wine is the perfect end to an exciting day.

Happy Thanksgiving from our table to yours!
