Wines to be thankful for

With Thanksgiving less than one month away, our own resident American Claire, has rounded up her top picks for the ultimate Thanksgiving dinner. Make note even if you're not celebrating on the 23rd of November, as these wines are also perfect for Christmas dinner!

Grace Bridge Pinot Noir – with Turkey

Varner Zinfandel – with cheese board

Stolphman Roussanne – with creamy dips such as spinach and artichoke


Pol Couronne Champagne – Canapes


Gilles Morat Saint Veran – with Turkey


La Giaretta Amarone – Chocolate dessert or Pecan pie



And to fit in with the theme, we've asked Claire to share some interesting facts about American wine:

  • California is the 4th largest wine producing region in the world.

  • US accounts for 8% of the worlds wine production.

  • US wine exports reached $1.62 billion in winery revenues last year, 90% of which was represented by California (Wine Institute).
