Thanksgiving Wine Pairings

With all the focus on the big meal, which wines should you serve with Thanksgiving dinner? Original Fare showcases some good ol’ American wines to pair with your farmer’s market stuffing. Best in show goes to the Ancestor Blend from Halter Ranch. For something a little sweater and lighter go for a Washington Riesling like Poet’s Leap. For fruit forward fanatic friends, try Sparkman, also from Washington. But if you’re feeling frisky, Channing Daughters has a wild take on a pairing with their Ramato.

What will you be trying this year? Tell us in the comments.
