You might see a lot of people recommending Riesling for Thanksgiving, and here’s why: it’s incredibly versatile. The sugar balances out acid, but if you don’t prefer the sweeter styles try ones from Alsace which tend to be on the dry side.

The label on the Laurent Barth “Rebgarten Vieilles Vignes” is a vine leaf formed out of the words “the spirit of wine” written in French, Arabic, Georgian, Hindu and Persian. Not exactly your all-American wine, but the citrus, white peach and almond notes will make you not care.
