Organic wines for ThanksgivingOrganic wines for Thanksgiving
November 26, 2008
Last May, I was lucky enough to attend the Cooking for Solutions tasting event in Monterey, California—a celebrity chef-studded blitz of delicious seafood, meats, veggie dishes, desserts, and (last but not least!) organic and biodynamic wines from northern and central California. A few of those wines made a lasting impression. If you're looking for something special to serve with Turkey this Thursday (or throughout the coming holidays) I highly recommend a few that I tasted that night, plus some other go-to favorites. Salute!
Chappellet >> Napa Valley Chardonnay or Mountain Cuvee
Ceago >> Cabernet Franc Del Lago or Late Harvest Semillon
Five Rivers >> Pinot Noir or Cabernet Sauvignon
Frey Vineyards >> Petite Syrah or Zinfandel
Heller Estate >> Meritage or Chardonnay
Bonterra >> Viognier or Merlot
Benziger >> Sauvignon Blanc or Sonoma Valley Port
Frog's Leap >> Zinfandel or Frogenbeerenauslese (their version of Trockenbeerenauslese)
