Pigs in a blanket do NOT go with Pinot Noir, get the cookbook!

This Thanksgiving, give your family something to rave about. Let’s make YOU the talk of the family through food. Spread your gratitude and love through everyone’s love language: food, with an extra notch on the dinner table. Sticking to the traditional feasts is nice, but imagine going above and beyond, and receiving praises that will carry you to the end of this holiday season. Two months left in the year, you deserve to go out with a bang... and a nice wine pairing. 

Like many, we genuinely love a good wine pairing! This holiday season, while you’re living in the moment, it’s important to also feel good in those moments. This holiday season, you deserve good because you are good! We’ve created a list of pairings that complement our Thanksgiving collection of wines. These pairings are able to be substituted depending on dietary restrictions. Some recipes are outside- grill friendly but are also able to be made inside. We’re sure Uncle Paul, or Dad, can help a little with grilling this holiday!
