On Culinary Thymes: Thanksgiving Day is a Time for Texas Wine
The Thanksgiving Day table is set with abundance: savory, tasty and sweet. This meal requires wines that offer flexibility gained from fresh ripe fruit, lean or little oak aging or perhaps a kiss of sweetness.
My Thanksgivings Day wine selections along with their descriptions and wine and food pairings have been posted on Culinary Thymes (click this link). These Texas wines are up to the occasion:
Haak Vineyards Reserve Blanc du Bois 2009
Fall Creek Vineyards Meritus 2006
Becker Vineyards Clementine (Late Harvest Viogner) 2009
Why not buy some Texas wine?
Locally: Check out your local wine merchant. If no Texas wines are available, talk to them about carrying these and other fine wines now being produced in wineries all across Texas; all regions of Texas are now growing grapes and making wines.
Online: Alternatively, you can go to the winery websites (see above) and order the wines online for shipment to your home. Listings for Texas wineries are given at www.gotexanwine.org
