Question: What Wine Goes With Turkey?

Answer: Whatever wine you enjoy drinking.

The truth of that matter is that because Turkey is bland, pretty much any wine can go with it, so experts recommend pairing the wine with your side dishes. Common recommendations are Pinot Noir or Red Zinfandel for red, and Riesling, Gew├╝rztraminer, or Viognier for white. Most experts agree that fruitier wines go better with the traditional side dishes of cranberries and sweet potatoes. But the bottom line is that it doesn't really matter what the experts say. What matters is what will make your holiday enjoyable. So if you prefer a Spanish Tempranillo or a California Chardonnay, or an Italian Pinot Grigio... go for it.

Whatever you drink this holiday, remember it's the family and friends that you are drinking with that make Thanksgiving special.
