What goes nicely with a Butterball turkey? A buttery Chardonnay, of course.
But that’s not the only type of wine that works well with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, etc.
Matter of fact, depending on the flavors and texture of a specific vintage, several different types can show very nicely. Yes, we’ve included a Chardonnay in the turkey-friendly list below… but only one.
Explore our review archives to find the flavors and texture that match your palate… and your Turkey Day plate…
If you’re joining our “12 Days of Thanksgiving” late, check the blogs immediately below this one for recommendations on five wines that match well with ham; six light, earthy reds; four full, buttery whites; and four light, sweet whites — all culled from the Wine Lines review archives.
We hope we’ve given you lots of choices to make your Thanksgiving meal even more special. Keep in mind that not all wines are available in all areas, and that it never hurts to ask your grocery store liquor department manager for assistance in tracking down a specific bottling.
The “12 Days of Thanksgiving” will conclude tomorrow and Thursday with two “golden oldies” from Bob’s wine column archives. We hope you’ll check back with us for those fun reads.
And whether you do or not, all of us at Wine Lines Online — Glen, Mary, Bob and Tom — hope you and yours have a great Turkey Day. We are thankful you have found our website.
