Thanksgiving will certainly be different this year. We usually have just under 50 family for dinner and this year we will have only immediate family and Ron and I will be in an adjoining room. We are going to get our extended family to eat at the same time so we can all visit by “Zoom!” Last year, most of us had never even heard of Zoom!
With everything that’s changed, it’s good to maintain what traditions we can. You don’t need the stress of worrying what wine to choose for dinner. You can’t go wrong with wassail or mulled wine before dinner. We have mulling spices and recipes available here at the winery and you can grab a bottle of Pardee, Concord or Sweet MountainRose to mull and enjoy.
If you are having a traditional baked turkey with herbed flavorings, try a bottle of MountainRose’s Jawbone Red. The nutty “spicy” flavors of this dry red wine will pair with it perfectly. Do you prefer white wine? No problem. Splashdam’s crisp finish and citrusy taste will bring out the best in your turkey.
Also having spiral sliced glazed honey ham? Try Dorchester Red with a hint of sweetness and fruity flavors to match the glazed sauce. If perhaps you’ve used the whole packet of brown sugar and spices, then sweet Pardee Red is your wine.
Just want one bottle. Make it your favorite wine and enjoy! Cheers, from our family to yours!
