Wine pairings to be thankful for

You don’t need to wait for the main course of Thanksgiving dinner to uncork the wine.

Thanksgiving dinner is perhaps the biggest meal of the year. A chance to gather with friends and family and enjoy a nice home-cooked meal. Whether you’re a guest bringing a bottle to the festivities or the host looking to elevate the menu, the right wine pairing can tie together the whole meal.

Before dinner:

You don’t need to wait for the main course to be served before uncorking the wine. Wine can be an excellent aperitif that can stimulate the appetite and get the taste buds excited for the meal ahead. The key to serving wine as an aperitif is to select one that is light-bodied and low in both alcohol and sugar, as anything heavier is likely to suppress the appetite than stimulate it.
