Wined Down: Turkey Day Wine, Minus The Heartburn

Vinted on November 22, 2012 binned in Wined Down (

As long-time 1WD readers already know, I’m not much for specific holiday wine pairings. Generally speaking, general guidelines will serve you better than trying to force a specific wine into a situation for which it might not be properly equipped – and no food-&-wine pairing situation is fraught with more potential culinary landmines than the Thanksgiving Table!

I’ve no more to add to those general guidelines than what I posted regarding the Turkey Day wine pairing action plan last year, however I also have a new boss this year ( And that boss knows that people actually like the holiday wine pairing thing, and so it’s my job to try and make that scenario an interesting read.

And so today I give you a humorous take on the old Thanksgiving food & wine pairing spiel, style; with tongue planted firmly in cheek there (not that cheek, you perv!), as it swishes some high-acid wines to wash down all that turkey, stuffing and sweet potato casserole. Enjoy!

Oh, and one more thing – the thing for which I’m most thankful today? YOU, the 1WD readership. Actually, I’m thankful for you every day, not just today… ok, whatever, you know what I mean! You people seriously RAWK IT and have made this little corner of the Internet the special place that it is.

Cheers – and have a safe, engorging Turkey Day!
