Thanksgiving Wine Recommendations
We are thrilled to be able to recommend a handful of perfect wines to serve for Thanksgiving dinner available for purchase at a fraction of the retail cost. The folks over at The California Wine Club have developed an expertise in discovering quality wines at reasonable prices and have put together this wonderful list of Thanksgiving wine recommendations . For almost a quarter of a century, each month, owners Bruce & Pam Boring travel California's wine country searching out the wineries, meeting the families and tasting the wines that never make it to local stores or wine shops. Best yet, they have done the research for us and have gathered what we believe is a wonderful selection of wines that would pair well with the tastes and smells of a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. And don't worry – you do not have to join the wine club to purchase any of these bottles. The only requirement is that you buy in 6 bottle or 12 bottle increments which should be no problem if you, like many of us, are expecting a crowd this Thanksgiving. Cheers!
