Ask Sid: Best Wine with roast turkey?

Question: Just celebrated the Canadian Thanksgiving with a roast turkey dinner. Going to San Francisco for the US Thanksgiving on November 26 which probably will result in an encore. What is the best wine choice?

Answer: Turkey by itself is quite versatile for most wine pairings that work. It is all the other accoutrements served with it that brings in lots of other diverse flavours. No single choice is necessarily best though Andre Simon in Partners gave us a good one – Domaine de Chevalier Red from Bordeaux. Almost any white (riesling, chardonnay), rose, or red (except a too big and powerful one) should match well for you. Lots of correct choices. I usually choose a lighter pinot noir. Cop out by choosing a wine you really like drinking.

  1. As President Sid said the question should not be which wine with turkey, but which wine with the assortment of other dishes on the heavily laden table?

  2. I agree with Sid, and usually have a somewhat younger, fruitier pinot noir with turkey and all the other accoutrements.
