  1. Summer Water Rosé

    Definitely not just for summer! This wine has notes of cranberry and pomegranate with a dry and refreshing finish. Pair this wine with appetizers, starters, or even the entree!

  2. Ferrari Carano Fume Blanc

    This wine will pair with a simple turkey and stuffing dinner. The fermentation process takes place in a stainless steel tank, while the aging process takes place in a barrel, making this a complex wine with a nice depth.

  3. Four Graces Pinot Noir

    This Oregon wine pairs perfectly with all fall foods. It has aromas of cherries, black raspberries, spice, leather, and a hint of earth. This wine is complex but also easy to drink.

  4. Butter Chardonnay

    This one has a creamy, smooth texture; hints of pineapple and honeydew; and a sweet, lingering finish.

  5. Pine Ridge Chenin Blanc + Viognier

    This white wine has notes of green apple, white peaches, apricot, and honey. It's super affordable and is a crowd pleaser! It also has a dry finish making it a perfect pairing for any food at your Thanksgiving feast.

  6. Meiomi Pinto Noir

    With vineyards located on three coastal areas of California, this wine embodies each climate with its balance of bright flavors and rich textures.

  7. Para Maria Syrah

    This red wine is full-bodied with complex flavors and mouthfeels. It brings an aromatic contrast to a milder flavored wine.

  8. Jadot Beaujolais

    Pairing elegantly with poultry, this wine is perfect for a Thanksgiving dinner. Strawberry, black cherry, and spice complement the plump grape flavor, which makes this an easy-drinking wine ideal for Thanksgiving.

  9. H3 Cabernet Sauvignon

    If you're grilling your turkey this Thanksgiving, reach for this Cab. The earthiness of this wine will complement the grilled meat. Plus, with dark berry and vanilla flavors, it almost tastes like dessert, and even has a cocoa finish.
