In just a few short weeks we’ll be celebrating Thanksgiving, (sheesh- where does the time go?). This can be such a difficult holiday. Sharing a table with family members who know how to push our buttons with opposing political, religious, and opinionated views. Doing your best to cook the turkey to perfection, while accommodating the vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free, pro-paleo, and folks with nut allergies. Even trying to decide what wine to serve can be daunting. AND YOU KNOW YOU’RE GOING TO NEED WINE!
V. Sattui to the rescue! Our Thanksgiving Box is bundled with four wines that go perfectly with a traditional holiday meal. These wines also offer a wide variety of flavors to please all of the palates at your table. The V. Sattui Thanksgiving Box is available for $89, and is available in our Tasting Room or online, and shipped to your door.
At the very least, everyone at the table will find a wine that makes them happy. Maybe you better get two boxes?
2014 Gamay Rouge
The beautiful cranberry color of this wine alone sets a festive atmosphere on the table! Add the bright and fruity flavors of strawberry, tropical fruit, and cranberry and you have a great pairing for turkey, cranberry sauce, and sweet potatoes. It’s also great with smoked salmon and cured meats, which you may have as appetizers to kick off your feast. Gamay Rouge is a crowd-pleaser– both light, and festive!
2014 Sattui Family Chardonnay
Open this bottle and take in the beautiful aromas of vanilla, citrus, and green apples! These fruity flavors follow through when you take a sip, followed by tart acidity and rich mouthfeel. This lighter bodied chardonnay will make a great pairing with roast turkey, buttery mashed potatoes, and dressing doused with gravy!
2013 Sattui Family Pinot Noir
This newly released Pinot has enticing herbal and earthy aromas followed by ripe black cherry and pomegranate flavors. It is a very versatile wine to pair with many different turkey preparations, stuffing recipes, and a spectrum of side dishes. The gentle tannins also marry well with green vegetables such Brussels sprouts, leafy greens such as kale, chard or spinach, as well as the classic green bean casserole!
2011 Sattui Family Cabernet
A classic Napa Valley Cabernet you and your guests will give thanks for! Our Sattui Family Cabernet is made in a soft, engaging style with earthy notes, sweet ginger, cocoa and hints of lilac. Strong on flavor and light on tannins, this wine will pair well with your traditional Thanksgiving meal, plus longer-cooked meats like beef stews and pot roast.
