The Thanksgiving table has a wide variety of flavors. Our Head Wine Buyer, Lorena Ascencios, discusses three wines that will complement your entire meal and satisfy the palettes of all of your guests. Watch the video above to learn more, or explore all of the wines here:


Pinot Blanc d’Auxerrois, Dom. Jean-Claude Gueth – 2011
A delicious white wine that’s made from the ever-friendly Pinot Blanc grape – frequently referred to as Auxerrois. A fruity, dry white wine that’s unoaked and boasting fresh aromas that will appeal to any palate. Excellent with smoked trout, roasted chicken or alone as an apéritif.

Pierre Moncuit Brut Rosé – NV
The Moncuit family’s fidelity to great terroir can even be found in their one blended wine, the Brut Rosé. It is a combination of Chardonnay from Mesnil-sur-Oger fruit and Pinot Noir from Ambonnay. An elegant rosé with beautiful red fruit aromas.

“Nocedal” Rioja Reserva, Bodegas Fuenmayor – 2001
A reserva wine from the Rioja region requires minimum aging of 3 years before release. This bottle is from a fantastic vintage. This combined with the bottle age makes it a must for collectors. Unfiltered and made with as little intervention as possible rendering a wine that is drinking incredibly well today. A natural match with beef dishes from skirt steak to NY strip.
