There is such variety in foods and flavors for a Thanksgiving dinner. There’s white and dark meat, rich yams, tangy cranberries, creamy mashed potatoes, and spiced pumpkin pie. Having more than one holiday wine to share will give your guests options when serving appetizers, enjoying the stuffed turkey and serving delicious heart-warming desserts.

Really, there are no tried-and-true rules to follow when picking the right red or white wine. What’s most important to consider is how it tastes and how it compliments what you’re serving. However, as a general rule, lighter, livelier and less complex wines traditionally go better with a Thanksgiving feast than bolder wines.

Here’s our list of AmRhein Wine Cellars’ wines that are perfectly paired with turkey and all the fixings. All AmRhein's wines are locally grown and designed right in the heart of Southwest Virginia, 30 minutes outside of downtown Roanoke, Virginia. So you can feel good about supporting a local Virginia farmer and their product.

White Wines

Chardonnay is a great, everyday wine. But it is generally too intense to be served alongside Thanksgiving dinner. Consider instead AmRhein’s white wines that are refreshing, tangy, and fruity:

Traminette: A delightful floral nose sets up this crisp and refreshing off-dry wine featuring flavors of grapefruit and pineapple. The acidity is balanced with a natural residual fruit sugar reminiscent of the German Spatlase.
