So the real issue is all those side dishes. What you want is a wine that goes equally well with brussels sprouts, sausage stuffing, cranberry sauce, green beans, creamed onions, corn bread and 15 or 20 other Thanksgiving must-haves. This means a wine that not only manages to have wonderful flavor but also wonderful balance— neither too tannic nor too acidic, neither too alcoholic nor too light. It needs the zip to cut through cream, the delicacy to enhance subtle seasonings and the flavor to stand up to a host of other, not always complementary flavors—all qualities the following wines have. And, of course, all of them are perfect matches for turkey.

This article enumerates all the possible food and wine suggestions that includes white wines, red wines and rose. Taking note of the suggestion will make sure that everything will go well with the turkey.

But, you may also want to splurge and go for the highly recommended wines for the season such as Ars Vitis Riesling or Wolf Blass Grey Label. These are not cheap, but can be truly appreciated by even those with the most impeccable palate.

Think of the richness of the flavors, the exciting holiday ambiance and the fun. With the right combination of food and wine, you will surely have a merry Christmas with the right company.
