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 (Playboy.com). 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, Playboy.com 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!
