Some say stuffing, others do dressing. It can be cornbread or white bread, scented with sage, stuffed with sausage or dressed with oysters. Whatever recipe you favor, match the strongest flavor in the dish with the wine.
For instance, with oyster dressing, go with something citrusy. Working Girl White is bright with acidity, and classic citrus flavors. It also has an herbaceous quality, making it a perfect partner with vegetables like Brussel sprouts or green beans.
Whether it’s deep-fried, roasted, barbequed or smoked, turkey wine is a slam dunk. Whether a dry red, rosé or white, many wines shine with turkey. An elegant Pinot Noir or Dungeness Rosé works well with turkey, especially if there is a mushroom gravy.
Cranberry is probably the tangiest and toughest flavor to match. But our seasonal Cranberry Jubilee or the fruity and hints of fresh strawberries found in our Rosé The Riveter both pair perfectly with the tart-sweet flavors of cranberries. Each of these wines are so full of fruit that both are a good match with turkey too!
