In the mood for a big red? No problem, but make sure it is mature enough and with soft tannins.

Thanksgiving Day in USA falls on the fourth Thursday of November.

It celebrates the annual harvest and reminds of the history of the first pilgrims who learned how to grow the new food.

Thanksgiving dinner is a symbolic meal that celebrates newfound hope.

The main ingredient is stuffed turkey with many side dishes such mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, butternut squash, cranberry sauce, corn, Brussels sprouts, green beans, cornbread, pecan, bread stuffing, gravy and more.

Suggested wines:

Bubbles get the party started.
Rosé is the best compromise between white and red wines.
Pinot Noir is best with turkey.
Beaujolais Nouveau is conveniently released on the stroke of midnight on the third Thursday of November. One week before Thanksgiving.
Valpolicella and Barbera are super food friendly.
Oaked Chardonnay is the best white wine choice.
