Thanksgiving Day Suggestion #7: For Those Who Like a Little Tradition with their Turkey

Last year's selection.  Sold out before T-Day!
I know it may not be the cool kid thing to like, but I am not exactly a cool kid. So I will say it loud and proud. I like a nice Beaujolais Nouveau around Thanksgiving time! The best of them, from small producers that aren’t turning out containers full of the stuff, are fresh and fruity and juicy. With a legally mandated release date of November 18th, they’re they freshest bottles on the shelf come Turkey Day.

And a good one is just the thing to wash down plates of Thanksgiving treats. You won’t linger over its complexity. You won’t go on about how profound it is. And it certainly won’t change your life. But it will taste good with everything from a perfectly brined turkey to a plate of stovetop stuffing. And really…do you want to serve a wine that might outshine that shaved carrot and marshmallow salad? No you don’t.

So act fast and pick up a bottle or two. Or a five. Or a case. But hurry. Last year, we sold every bottle before the turkey even hit the oven.



To buy, go to Wines page, enter "nouveau" in the search field to pull up our selection. Then click to purchase.
