What Wine Is Best For Thanksgiving Dinner?

Now that it’s finally November, there is one thing that is usually at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Thanksgiving dinner! Jonathan’s Ristorante is currently accepting reservations as well as offering Thanksgiving orders to-go! Click here to view our menu. While all the turkey and sides alone are enough to have your mouth watering, there are ways you can enhance your meal. As a top restaurant in Huntington, our team at Jonathan’s Ristorante knows a thing or two about getting the most out of dinner. If you’d like to know which wines will be best for your turkey day meal, please continue reading.

Zinfandel       

The first type of wine our staff recommends working into your Thanksgiving dinner is Zinfandel. This red wine pairs perfectly with turkey, as its lower tannin helps to moisten the sometimes dry poultry meat. The secondary flavors in this type of wine also perfectly match with fall, giving you just another reason to try these flavors. These secondary flavors include:

  • Cinnamon.
  • Clove.
  • Vanilla.

Pinot Noir

Although this fact is sometimes overlooked, turkey is not the only meat served during a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Ham is also an item that many people look forward to consuming on this day. If you plan on loading up your plate with this type of food, you’ll need to pair it with the perfect glass of wine. Pinot Noir is just that. It is a light-bodied red wine who’s high acidity can cut through the rich flavors of ham.  

Riesling

If red wine isn’t usually your go-to, there are still options you can choose from if you’d like to pair a glass with dinner. For people who fall into this category, the staff here at our restaurant in Farmingdale highly recommends going with Riesling. After each sip of this dry white wine, it’s almost as if you are resetting your palate for the next bite. Additionally, the bright acidity tingles through the fats found in all the staples of Thanksgiving dinner, including the following:

  • Gravy.
  • Stuffing.
  • Potatoes.
  • Yams.
