Sunday, November 24th
Thanksgiving Wines
12:00 – 1:30 PM

Wine pairing for the Thanksgiving dinner….is there truly a single wine that can take you seamlessly from start to finish?
Can the wine be just white, just red, or both? Is there a comprehensive Thanksgiving wine list that will give the guests plenty of options?
Selecting which wines will best complement your menu, and appeal to your guests with individual taste preferences is always a bit challenging, but we will give you the necessary information to make this traditional meal
stress-free and enjoyable.
