It’s that time of the year again, when we get together with loved ones to remember what we’re thankful for. And of course, it’s also the time to indulge in the best meal of the year! We’re here to help you take this year’s Thanksgiving dinner to the next level, by offering recommendations on how to pair some of your favorite traditional Thanksgiving dishes with our delicious, nature-inspired wines. Crafted from 100% organically grown grapes, you know you’re sharing the purest wines possible.
From stuffing to ham to turkey, our infographic below provides vegan wine pairing options for your favorite dishes (as well as one for the following days)!
As guests begin to arrive, we recommend uncorking a bottle of Natura Carmenere. This wine’s flavors of fresh cherries and spice make it the perfect fall wine to sip on while everyone greets one another and settles in.
Once everyone is sitting around the dinner table, we recommend putting out Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir and letting guests choose what to drink based on their food choices. This is your chance to impress them with your wine pairing skills!
Who says poultry should just be paired with white wine? The flavors of a juicy Thanksgiving turkey pair perfectly with the soft acidity and generous fruit intensity of our Pinot Noir. If you or your guest prefer ham, we suggest pairing it with a glass of crisp Sauvignon Blanc. The bright acidity of this refreshing white wine cuts through the saltiness of the ham, making it an ideal pairing.
Of course the stars of the show are always the side dishes! The savory qualities of our Cabernet Sauvignon complement the flavors of a hearty stuffing, and a rich potato gratin casserole. Our fresh, unoaked style of Chardonnay is simply perfect with a sweet cornbread or even roasted root vegetables. One of your guests is vegetarian or vegan? You can feel confident that Natura wines are vegan-friendly (and gluten free) and it’s one less thing to stress about.
In the days following Thanksgiving, keep in mind that the berry flavors of our soft, fruity Merlot pair deliciously with those triple-decker turkey sandwiches!
