White & Sparkling Wines

 

 

Gorghi Tondi Zibbibo Secco Mazara del Vallo, Sicily, Italy: Do you say pretty? She is stunning with notes of orange peel, tangerine and rose water. The varietal Zibibbo is also known as Muscat of Alexandria in France, highly perfumed and earning fame within dessert wines of Sicily.  Highly aromatic, like Gewurztraminer- it will navigate the extremes of dishes on your Thanksgiving table, from sweet potatoes to casseroles. $12.99*
 

Hillinger Pinot Gris Burgenland, Austria: Hillinger's Pinot Gris has a light straw color with melon and tangerine aromas, that leads into rich apricot and honey on the palate. There is plenty of mineral and citrus on the finish. This wine has an unctuous quality to it that lends itself well to turkey and all the trimmings. $14.99*
 

Ferreri & Bianco Cataratto Sicily, Italy: Cataratto is a white Italian grape varietal native to Sicily. With white pepper, lemon, and hints of saline, Cataratto lends itself naturally to complementing hard-to-pair Thanksgiving sides. Think green bean casserole, corn dishes, and roasted veggies.   $15.99*

 

Montinore "Borealis" White Blend Willamette Valley, Oregon: A cool climate blend of organic grapes including 38% Müller-Thurgau, 32% Gewurztraminer,19% Riesling and 11% Pinot Gris . Fresh blossom aromas, melon and apple flavors dance on the palate with hints of citrus, leading to a slightly off-dry finish. Delicious with traditional or deep fried turkey, honey baked ham and savory side dishes. $16.99*
 

Chateau Vitallis Pouilly-Fuisse Pouilly-Fuisse, Burgundy, France: This Vitallis bottling comes from 50+ yr old vines in the Maconnais subregion of Burgundy. Aged partly in oak, the classic stone fruit aromas of chardonnay are clean and expressive, and kissed gently by nuances of roasted hazelnut, acacia blossom and stone fruit. Leaning on the feminine side, this pretty wine would pair well with chilled shellfish appetizers and baked or sautéed fish main dishes for a pescatarian feast. $28.99*
 

R. Dumont et Fils Brut Champignol-Les-Mondeville, Champagne, France: This great value grower Champagne is built from a blend of 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay. Boasts a voluptuous, mouth-filling texture and aromas of kiwi, green apple, biscuit and hazelnuts. Finishes clean and fresh with notes of citrus and green apple with fine, persistent bubbles.  A pleasant surprise in a market flooded with overpriced “brand name” Champagnes. This wine gets better and better each year, its richness makes it great with salty snacks but also able to stand alone. $39.99*
 

Besson ‘Rose Granit’ Sparkling Rosé Beaujolais, Burgundy, France: 100% Gamay from the cru of Julienas in Beaujolais where Franck Besson produces this delightful bubbly made in the traditional sparkling method. It is delicate with strawberries and rose petals on the nose which lead into a mouthful of soft mousse and a touch of bready yeast. EVERYONE loves this wine, and if EVERYONE loves this wine, maybe they will be nicer to each other. That’s Thanksgiving logic.  $25.99*

 

Red Wines

 

Valerio Piemonte Rosso Piedmont, Italy: The Piedmont is known for their Nebbiolo based blends, and Valerio hits it out of the park. It is a blend of Nebbiolo, Barbera, Freisa and Syrah. It has a fairly meaty nose, with hints of black fruit and earth. The palate is fleshy yet bright, with a nice structure and balanced acidity. Beautiful with mushroom based dishes and sauces. $11.99*
 

Jean-Michel DupréHaute Ronze’ Vielles Vignes Régnié, Beaujolais, France: It isn’t Thanksgiving without Beaujolais! Régnié is an appellation of Beaujolais where the terroir speaks for itself. Elements of graphite are heavily apparent in the wine, giving a lightly smoky, gamey note. The texture is soft and light, with bright acidity and fresh cherry notes on the palate and a long, silky finish. A very versatile red that pairs with ham and birds of all feathers.  $17.99*


Gorghi Tondi ‘Dume’ Frappato
Mazara del Vallo, Sicily, Italy: This is such a fun wine, especially with a slight chill on it! Soft and light, with raspberry, juicy plum, and violet notes. Pairs beautifully with food and avoiding Aunt Sally’s questions about who you’re dating these days. $19.99*
 

Lapis Luna Zinfandel North Coast, California: This Zinfandel contains 20% Sangiovese which adds some texture and acidity. This is like decadent blueberry/blackberry fruits with hints of savory black pepper. It is easy and quite soft, not overly spicy on the finish. Crowd-pleasing and food-friendly, particularly with a slight chill. Excellent with game birds and roasts if turkey is not your thing. $15.99*


Glenelly Estate Reserve Red Blend
Stellenbosch, South Africa: There’s bound to be someone at the table who only drinks Napa Cab – this is the wine that’ll make them AND you happy. Plus you can impress snooty cousin Niles with the fact that Glenelly Estate was established in 2003 by then 78 year old May de Lencquesaing, owner of the famous Bordeaux estate Chateau Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande. Glenelly Estate Reserve is their signature red blend.

47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 15% Syrah, 11% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot matured for 18 months in French oak. “The 2013 vintage is all about elegance with underlying power. Bold aromatics of blackberries, cranberry and blackcurrant are followed by hints of savoury, spicy plum with touches of cedar and floral tones. Very balanced oak integration with a fresh long finish.” – winemaker notes.  $25.99*
