Friends, family, food and wine… Thanksgiving is almost here! The best Thanksgiving meals include a combination of rich flavors like buttery mashed potatoes, a juicy turkey and sweet pumpkin pie. This year, balance these rich flavors with a little spice by drinking Gewürztraminer, our go-to Thanksgiving wine!
This versatile, semi-sweet white literally translates to “spicy grape” and is pronounced ga-vertz-trah-mee-nur. Spicy, floral and aromatic, it is perfect for balancing out the richness of your dinner while adding a pop of flavor to your sides. Gewürztraminer will also add a touch of spiciness to Thanksgiving desserts, whether you are a pumpkin or apple pie fan.
Try this: If you are bold and want to add even more spice to your Thanksgiving meal, ditch the cranberry sauce and try Messina Hof’s Gewürztraminer Raspberry Chipotle sauce on your turkey instead!
