The cool and crisp breezes, the dry falling leaves and the return of those familiar shop window decorations all point to one thing — the holiday season is just around the corner. While that may sound stressful to some, why not add a laid back Northwest feeling to this year’s festive functions with Chateau Ste. Michelle’s family of Washington state wines?
On Thanksgiving, whether you’re preparing the bird or were just asked to bring a bottle, the last thing you need to worry about is choosing the right wine. Turkey lends itself well to both reds and whites, so you can let your preference be your guide. If you’re a red lover, perhaps opt for the Chateau Ste. Michelle Indian Wells Merlot from the Columbia Valley, which is juicy and round with integrated tannins that won’t overwhelm the meal. White wine drinkers will appreciate the crisp fruit character of their Indian Wells Chardonnay from the Columbia Valley, which pairs well with the flavors of any number of poultry dishes.
