You know what pairs well with a great Thanksgiving celebration? A great bottle of wine, of course, but picking that out, unfortunately, can be a task fraught with particular pitfalls. Simply selecting a wine for a night in at the apartments for rent in New York City can be challenging, so imagine taking into account the myriad complexities of your Thanksgiving meal and trying to decide which bottle(s) of wine to break out! Thankfully (no pun intended), we’ve got some surefire tips that will help you cut through the noise and match the perfect wines with your upcoming feast. Read on, and learn which bottles you should have on hand for a great Thanksgiving dinner.

How To Pick Wine: Thanksgiving Style

According to The Spruce, sparkling wine is a worthy choice for just about any Thanksgiving meal:

“Sparkling wines bring both elegance and phenomenal food-pairing versatility to virtually any meal, but for Thanksgiving, these wines really shine. They typically carry a decent dose of acidity, which amps the pairing potential, while adding a festive flair to the table in general.”

So with that in mind, which sparkling wines should you keep in stock? There are three choices that always make a great impression come Thanksgiving: Prosecco, Cava, and Sparkling Rose. Those sweet tastes vary from floral and creamy to crisp and fruity, and match well with desserts, so your guests can surely enjoy them with a great piece of pie.

Now, sparkling wines are great, but they aren’t the only ones you should keep on hand for Thanksgiving. You’ll also want to choose something with well-balanced acidity that can make an impression for those rich and savory sides you’ll have during your meal. This is where the white wines come into play. You’ve got plenty to pick from here, but if we’re making suggestions, try some dry whites like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, or semi-sweets like Zinfandel.

Finally, you’ll want to consider some rich red wines for your feast as well. The taste of red wine is always a great complement to meat dishes (that Thanksgiving turkey in particular), but also goes great with delicious sides like potatoes and stuffing. It’s hard to go wrong with a good bottle of Pinot Noir, but you can expand your choices to include a nice Syrah or Beaujolai Nouveau and have everything you need for a Thanksgiving wine list done surprisingly right.
