Thanksgiving Wine List 2017

by Leslie Schlernitzauer

Wines for Thanksgiving – think outside the bottle!

If you know me, you know I love my wine, and love sharing my recommendations with all of you. With some help from local Charlotte wine stores, we put together a great list to choose from for the holidays. I hope you and yours have an awesome thanksgiving, and if you enjoy any of these during the holiday season please send us your pictures! 

For the white lovers.

 Gewurztraminer and Beyond

Hugel and Trimbach are the classics but if you want to support California, try Gundlach Bundschu.

Pinot Grigio – 2016 Tiefenbrunner

Riesling – 2016 St. Urbans-Hof Estate

Vouvray – 2016 Marc Bredif

Champagne: Thanksgiving is worthy of bubbles too!

Pol Roger – if the last royals to wed can drink so can we?!

Laurent Perrier Rose (my favorite!)

Louis de Grenelle Saumur NV

 

For the red lovers.
