"Wine is one of the most civilized things in the world and one of the most natural things of the world that has been brought to the greatest perfection and it offers greater range for enjoyment and appreciation than, possibly, any other purely sensory thing."
Ernest Hemingway, Death in the Afternoon
"What we're really talking about is a wonderful day set aside on the fourth Thursday of November when no one diets.
I mean, why else would they call it Thanksgiving?"
Erma Bombeck, No One Diets on Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is one of our nation's favorite holidays. It presents us with a respite from our busy modern lives and with a rare, uninterrupted opportunity to share tantalizing dishes (hopefully) paired with wines together with family and friends. It is a time for commensality.
Thankfully, the days when wine was regarded as provenance of the affluent are past. The United States looks to be entering a golden age of wine; wine is on its way to becoming a staple, drunk by all ages and classes.
At Snooth we believe that a wine's quality need not be reflected in its price. A traditional Thanksgiving dinner can be grand as is, with appetizers and soups, turkey, fixins and desserts, all shared among a generous group of family and friends. The wine shouldn't put you into debt.
To that end- we've launched a special Thanksgiving page comprised of wines highly rated by the Snooth community. These wines represent a variety of price points (many are under $20) and are available for purchase by clicking on the "Buy it Now" button, which links directly to our merchant partners. The five categories - sparkling, white, rosé, red, dessert/fortified - will take you from cheese tray to pumpkin pie in style.
Happy early Thanksgiving everyone!
