You might not know what kind of wine to bring to Thanksgiving.
Let this evening be your opportunity to decide.
Often Gamay or Pinot Noir are the grapes assigned for Thanksgiving.
But why not an unusual grape? Here are the ones you cannot bring.
No Cabernet Sauvignon. No Merlot. Chard-no-way. Skip the Sauvignon Blanc. And thought my heart resists, no Riesling. Do I really need to say anything about Pinot Blanc or Gris or Grigio? Wait until summer.
Albarinio is OK, but Alvarinho is better.
Think Bonardas. It can even be in a blend. Or Viognier.
Must you bring a Grenache? Why not a Cannonau? And no Syrah or Shiraz unless it's a Chateauneuf du Pape. You can ALWAYS bring a Chateauneuf du Pape, even when I've not suggested it.
Let's see if we can memorize a new Italian, Greek or Portuguese grape.
You may think there may be a time for Yellowtail in some sad alternative universe.
This is not one of those times.
Bring an appetizer and a bottle, with a little cash for the prosecco and cleanup.
But if you cannot bring them, $40 will do. That covers the sparkler, appetizer, bottle and cleanup.
Looking forward to seeing you.
