Pairing for Thanksgiving

“My family is one of those that only drink wine on special occasions when we all get together for holiday dinners. So picking a wine that everyone will enjoy can be a bit of a task.

One particular winner at the table that has become one of my go to wines for Thanksgiving is Gaspereau Vineyards Riesling. With the sheer amount of buttery mashed potatoes and creamy gravy that is consumed, a fresh acidic Riesling is the perfect match to cut through all those rich flavours.

And the light sweetness that balances out the acidity in the wine is sure to be a crowd pleaser.”
