In my own humble opinion, nothing describes Thanksgiving better than the word togetherness. Whether it be with family, friends, co-workers or someone you just met, being together is what seems to make Thanksgiving come to life. Togetherness is what makes Thanksgiving worth celebrating.
It is my deepest wish that wherever you may be this Thanksgiving holiday, that you may find and share some togetherness with others. Break out some homemade wine. Maybe even pass a few bottles out as gifts, and experience the joy that Thanksgiving was meant to bring.
I personally like to make a red Zinfandel for Thanksgiving. It’s big, jammy flavors seem to couple well with the turkey and stuffing. Plus, it’s not a complicated wine. It’s one that is easy to like. Even non-wine-drinkers will appreciate the zest and compliment it brings to the meal.
I hope you have a pleasant and enjoyable Thanksgiving. Relax, share some wine with family and friends, and be together.
