In America tomorrow is the big day: Thanksgiving. Of course most of us will roll out the traditional recipes and ingredients, with turkey taking center stage at the table. Now what about your side dishes? Along with the standby family favorites—sweet potatoes, stuffing, cranberries—there will be the standby wines: a Sauvignon Blanc or a Pinot No... Read More

Loads of pineapple, pear and tropical fruits in this wine. Nicely oaked with a touch of acidity. Read More
It’s the holiday season and everyone is recommending Pinot Noir again. What is it with folks, do they just like to take the path of least resistance? Will there come a day when Pinot is not the end all of holiday wine recommendations? Probably not.
