Thanksgiving is just around the corner and there's a good chance you're either hosting people for a day of Olympic eating or spending the day at the home of family or friends. This should go without saying, but if you're a guest, make sure you don't show up empty-handed. Hopefully you're already bringing a side dish or dessert to share, but you can never go wrong with wine. Here are three Thanksgiving wines to bring to the dinner.
Here are three sure-bets to go with your Thanksgiving meal.
Pinot Noir - You can't go wrong with Pinot. It's light-bodied enough to go with all the flavors of your Thanksgiving meal, and easy drinking enough that you can sip it with appetizers, mashed potatoes or pumpkin pie. Choose a California Pinot like this Meiomi Pinot Noir for fruity and floral notes or one from New Zealand like Woollaston Pinot for a more minerally finish.
Dry rosé - Just because the weather has turned cool doesn't mean you have to put away your love of rosé. Choose a bottle that is a little dryer and has more of a mineral than sweet finish like the Acrobat Rose Of Pinot Noir or this one from Ryder Estate to pair with everything from that cheese platter to grandma's homemade cranberry sauce.

Champagne - When in doubt, Champagne is always the answer. Besides, you're celebrating all that you're thankful for, right? The bubbles will help awake your palette before dinner and help balance out the I'm-so-stuffed sensation after you've gone back for seconds. For a bottle of wine that doubles as a hostess gift, try the Limited Edition 40th Anniversary Champagne Brut Reserve from Nicolas Feuillatte - delicious to drink and packaged in a gold gift-ready container.
Between family get-together on their own AND the recent election, vino is definitely your friend this Thanksgiving.
