Thanksgiving is a time for sharing good times, good meals, and great wine! And we want to make sure that you are treating your guests to some excellent wine to pair perfectly with your Thanksgiving meal!
Jackson Triggs Riesling Gewurztraminer Tasting notes: Pale lemon; peach dominates here with accents of lychee, lime zest, mineral and floral; off-dry with a lingering mineral finish.
Pairs well with: Turkey!! It also pairs well with any fruitier side dishes and is very versatile with all types of food.
Ravenswood Zinfandel Tasting notes: Big Bold and unappologetic! This wine has aromas of black cherry, raspberries, and blueberries, with hints of oak.
Pairs well with: Turkey with cranberry sauce. It also pairs well with heavier, strong flavored dishes such as sweet potatoes, stuffing and mashed potatoes.
Apothic Red Tasting notes: A masterful blend of rich Zinfandel, smooth Merlot, flavorful Syrah and bold Cabernet Sauvignon creates layers of dark red fruit complemented by hints of vanilla and mocha.
Pairs well with: As Apothic is a sweeter red wine, it can be used much the same as Port so feel free to serve this wine with your favorite Thanksgiving dessert!
When pairing wine, the most important thing to remember is to pair them with things that you love!
Last week Chances Castlegar celebrated it’s 4th anniversary with a big party. Hot dogs and hamburgers were available by donation to raise funds for the Rock Creek Fire Victims. Thanks to the generosity of Chances Castlegar’s amazing patrons, they raised $648.10! Terrim Properties Ltd. matched those donations, allowing us to make a donation to the Red Cross of $1296.20 for the benefit of the fire victims.
Our thoughts go out to all of those affected by the fire.
