Thanksgiving Wine Pairings

It’s already November and Thanksgiving is just around the corner which means there is no better time to plan your Thanksgiving Day menu and begin selecting wines to complement the feast. While there are plenty of incredible Thanksgiving recipes out there, we have chosen a few that might stir your appetite and get your creative wine pairing juices flowing!

Thanksgiving is a time to gather with family and friends and indulge in the delicious and festive seasonal dishes. It is also a time to try out your favorite Fratelli Saraceni wine with some of the classic Thanksgiving dishes.

Cashews with Crispy Sage and Garlic + Blumond

Try pairing Blumond with Cashews with Crispy Sage and Garlic. The Italian blue drink paired with the light and crunchy cashews will start the festivities off with a pleasant and colorful holiday feel.

In the mood for something more traditional to welcome your guests? Our Prosecco DOC is the perfect drink to get the party started.
