Basic Holiday Wine Pairing Thanksgiving is upon us and so begins the great culinary chase! We go through this every year, trying to chase down the perfect wine pairings for our menus. Searching for the latest, greatest holiday wine. Is it Lambrusco or Oregon Pinot this year? Or are you so Avant-garde that you’ve already moved onto to German Pinot Noir?

It’s time to take a step back and revisit the basics of food and wine pairing. Remember that while the best sommeliers and retailers are constantly trying to find an angle, you already know a lot about what food and wine pairings work for you! Sticking with the basic steps to food and wine pairing (I’m not going to call them rules) can help you tweak what you know, and know what to tweak when it comes to all those suggestions.
