Step #1 - While turkey is the center of the Thanksgiving meal, it is far from the most important element. In general, you should be pairing wines to the most intense elements of a menu in terms of sweet, sour, salt, or bitterness. Turkey is a lovely bird, but one of its greatest assets is its mild flavor and the fact that a single bird can feed an army with leftovers to boot!
