Recipe Thursdays: The Perfect Wine for a Thanksgiving Feast

Some say just about anything goes when it comes to Thanksgiving food and wine pairings, but you can’t argue there are certain wines that do better at the table than others. Since there’s usually a lot going on during feast time – i.e., many different flavors (and personalities) to contend with – it’s best to stick with crowd-pleaser wines that easily complement Thanksgiving’s glorious hodgepodge of stuffing, green beans, turkey, gravy and cranberry sauce.

That’s where Big Basin’s Homestead comes in. This bright and inviting red blend has juicy blackberry, cherry and plum fruit with hints of crushed flowers and anise. Akin to the cranberry sauce that goes with just about everything, this wine is a very approachable and tasty addition to the Thanksgiving table.
