With Thanksgiving around the corner, now is the time to start stocking up on your seasonal wine collection. Luckily, here at Sorrenti Family Estate, we have a range of over 30 different wines for you to choose from! From dry to sweet, still to bubbly, we've got all of your needs covered when it comes to pairing the perfect wines with your Thanksgiving spread.
Here we present our top 5 selections for you to pair with Thanksgiving, and some reasons why:
Salute - this sparkling white wine is reminiscent of an Italian Prosecco, with notes of honey and melon flawlessly complimenting its bright bubbly finish. Salute is the perfect wine to pair with hors d'ouvres, cheese platters, or Thanksgiving favorites, such as Crab Dip or Deviled Eggs. Our personal favorite to pair with the Salute are these Prosciutto Wrapped Dates. Light, and refreshing, this also makes an excellent wine to set the scene for a toast!
Leon Millot - our dry French Hybrid red wine is packed full of flavor. With notes of vanilla, tobacco, and clove, this red wine is complimentary alongside sharp cheeses, antipasto platters, and holiday favorites such as Baked Brie. For an interesting spin on the traditional, you can try out this Baked Brie with Wine Soaked Blackberries recipe, using the Leon Millot as your red wine to infused the fruit.
Vignoles - Our semi-dry reisling style white wine is a crowd pleaser. With a fruit forward finish that has notes of orange peel and cinnamon, it also makes a wonderful table wine for your Thanksgiving mains. Pairing perfectly with poultry, sweet potatoes, butternut squash and other spice infused dishes, this is the go-to choice for your white holiday dinner wine.
Cranberry Blush - The ULTIMATE Thanksgiving wine pairing. Our semi-sweet Cranberry infused blush wine is the perfect blend of tart and sweet. This wine has received countless accolades, even winning a Double Gold Medal at this year's 2020 Finger Lakes International Wine Competition. Check out our blog post on this year's winning wines. The Cranberry Blush pairs perfectly with Thankgiving's main star, the turkey, especially when topped off with a homemade Wine Infused Cranberry Sauce. Use this recipe and swap out Cranberry Blush for the red wine to truly wow your guests this year!
Apple - This classic 100% apple fruit wine is a great choice to use as a base to make delicious hot mulled wine. Simply take 2 bottles of apple wine, 1 gallon of apple cider, mulling spice tea bags, and cinnamon sticks and put them in a crockpot. Serve hot and enjoy! The perfect cold weather treat to warm your bones or to serve alongside your favorite Thanksgiving desserts, such as pumpkin or apple pie.
