From Rosé Champagne to Beaujolais-Villages, we've got a range to recommend to our American friends. Part shameless commerce division (the wines are available on http://vinport.com/wfnp), part food pairing bonanza we've got wines to make your TG more delicious!
Here is a list of the wines we mention:
Super Tuscan Syrah
Cahors (mostly Malbec)
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and please let us know how the wines were, especially if you ordered them from Vinport!
Thanks for listening!
