Low alcohol but full bodied Wines of Germany for Thanksgiving

11/21/2017

The versatility of German wines allow for them to pair perfectly with an array of flavors – from savory stuffing and tart cranberry sauce to sweet potato casserole and a plethora of pies. Low alcohol but full flavored Wines of Germany brighten your Thanksgiving dinner cooking.


German wine is an ideal pairing for practically any dish at your Thanksgiving feast.

German Riesling will spoil you with lively notes of apple and citrus mixed with steely minerality. A Riesling "Spaetlese" (late harvest) can balance the heaviness and rich dishes of Thanksgiving dinner.

Here are a few more suggested pairings with German wine for your Thanksgiving meal:

  • Roast turkey pairs well with aromatic wines, such as Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc)
  • The fruit-forward, cherry flavors of a light Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) go well with a tart and tangy cranberry sauce
  • A fruity Riesling will pair nicely with any fruit-based side dishes, such as sweet potatoes or pineapple

We hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday filled with great friends, food and, of course, wine!
