The Daily Meal Article: The Ultimate Thanksgiving Meal Requires Oregon Wine

Thanksgiving is almost upon us. It is a day that centers around possibly the most important meal of the year. It is also a complicated meal featuring a wide variety of textures, spices, and flavors. A daunting meal to prepare, much less pair with wine. Some try to go the dangerous one wine route. I like to have multiple wines on the table to make the most of each component of the meal. In my latest article for The Daily Meal I share how four high quality wines from Willamette Valley will meet all your Thanksgiving meal needs.

Please take a moment to click the title below and read my suggestions for Thanksgiving wine pairings. Then let me know what you plan to drink this Thanksgiving. If you have any questions about your pairings please ask, I will do my best to guide you.

  1. Happy Thanksgiving Michelle, wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday. I also like to have a variety of wine but it seems that everyone always just wants red wine so I try to have a variety of reds, I always have a Lambrusco because it’s one of my favorites. This year I ordered a Beaujolais Nouveau. I do love wine from Oregon, there are always really good choices. I recently ordered a 2014 Syrah from Pug Wine in Sonoma, Russian River Valley, it’s called Pug Syrah and have to say it’s really nice and now wish I would have ordered more than one bottle.

  2. Reblogged this on Appetite for Wine and commented:
    Here is a fantastic article by Michelle Williams, of the Rockin’ Red Blog. Like her, my Thanksgiving table will feature a variety of wines, though not all from Oregon. We will enjoy Pinot Noir, Beaujolais Nouveau, Chardonnay, Dry Riesling, and of course, Bubbles!

    Let me know what you’ll be serving with your dinner.

    May you have a blessed and joyful Thanksgiving day! Cheers!

  3. I love your selections, Michelle! Though not all from Oregon, our table will feature a similar variety, including Pinot Noir, Dry Riesling, Beaujolais Nouveau, Chardonnay, and of course, Bubbles! I hope you and your family have a fantastic Thanksgiving!

    • Thank you. I enjoy a bottle of Beaujolais cru and Champagne with Thanksgiving from time to time as well. I appreciate you reading, sharing your thoughts, and sharing on your site. I hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving.

  4. Love the comments and feedback everyone. Willamette Valley is becoming known for more than Pinot Noir. We’re seeing some wonderful cool climate Chardonnay and Riesling being produced, even Viognier and Syrah. Next trend here will play out with the investment in sparkling wines, maybe in the next few years.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving Michelle! Great choices! I didn’t even think of a Riesling! Great Article!
    I also have 2 Pinots from the Willamette Valley lined up for the big day: Omero Cellars Pinot Noir and Stangeland Pinot Noir. There is also Natte Viaje, a South African Cinsault and a Provence Styled Rosé that we may open up as well, but Pinot is the main pairing. Have a wonderful holiday!
