For Thanksgiving with the wide variety of flavors you serve turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, is really more important to think about the sides instead of the turkey.  The sides have so many flavors going from tart to sweet.  Whites with little oak and some good fresh acidity do the best at cutting through all of the variety of flavors.  Most important, serve what you like, if you enjoy a big oaky Chardonnay, that is what you should serve.

2019 Domaine de la Combe Muscadet Sevre et Maine...$18.99
Sur Lie
100% Melon de Bourgogne.  Great fish wine, but with its bright acidity and freshness it can really pair with with Thanksgiving Turkey and all the side dishes.
The Vineyard is located in the "lieux dit » La Pétière in Saint-Fiacre distinguished by its particular topography named « Combe » which is a sort of valley. Today Pierre Henry Gadais is the only wine grower to own this terroir. For this reason, it is considered a Monopole. In addition, « La Pétière », located nearby, used to be a pre-historic village. With a total of 9 hectares, planted with Melon de Bourgogne, the vineyard is one of the last to exclusively produce Muscadet. Pierre Henry has always believed in the Melon but also in the traditions. For him, the new generation is changing the variety and by doing so, losing the appellation. Pierre Henry does not want Muscadet to become a new world wine region.

2019 Comte de Langeron Bouzeron Aligote...$24.99
Bouzeron is one of the five appellations in the Cote de Chalonnaise and the closest one to the Côte-d’Or (Bouzeron is a close neighbor of Rully and Chassagne-Montrachet). It was officially recognized in 1997 as a full-fledged Burgundian appellation village. The only appellation where the grape Aligote is the star. Bouzeron only produces white wines and the only grape is Aligote. Aligoté grape is a cross of Pinot Noir and Gouais (that no longer exists today).  Comte de Langeron Aligote has aromas of fresh peaches, white flowers, and green apples. On the palate, it is well balanced and creamy, but the wine is very pure with great focus and nice streak of acidity running through it. Great crisp White Burgundy with a round mouthfeel! Great bottle!

2018 E. Traber Alsace Gewuztraminer...$19.99
Gewurztraminer is considered the top grape with Thanksgiving by many experts.   All the grapes are harvested by hand, to preserve all the aromatic richness, purity and freshness of the grape variety. This Gewurztraminer expressess the typicity of the grape variety. Gewurztraminer is the most aromatic of Alsace wines. With its aromas of rose, lychee and spices, and covers the palate. Soft, it goes well with foie gras, a fruit-based dessert. It goes well with spicy dishes or full-bodied cheeses. Perfect with the wide assortment at Thanksgiving too!

Bodega Cuatro Rayas
2020 Green & Social Rueda Organic Verdejo....$12.99
100% Verdejo
Green and social Rueda offers a straw yellow color with bright green hues and exhibits fresh, citrus fruit and balsamic aromas that are typical of the Verdejo variety. Its simplicity and purity find a dynamic and seductive path between fresh flavors, finesse, and minerality. It is a fresh and crisp wine.  Fresh and lively!

2020 Bargemone Rose Rose Coteaux d'Aix en Provence...$21.99
Rose is a great choice for Thanksgiving.  Perfect acidity, fruit and body! This is a lovely, pale blush rose offering a fresh, floral and fruity nose with top notes of red berries, orange rind, grapefruit and lemon zest. The texture is smooth and the palate is juicy and refreshing with wild strawberries and cherry flavors alongside with a hint of eucalyptus from the Cabernet giving energy and depth to the bone dry finish.
