Andre Blanck Pinot Gris 2019: A “wow” of a white wine from Alsace, France made from 100% Pinot Gris from a family estate that’s been making wine for seven generations! Super versatile as a pairing wine this unoaked white is a perfect match for the flavors on your Thanksgiving plate.

Shea Wine Cellars “Shea Vineyard” Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017: “The estate bottling brings together the various clones planted at this iconic vineyard. Offering a complex weave of plum, marionberry, and blackberry, it matches its delicious fruit with 40% new French oak, adding a seam of coffee and dark chocolate. The tannins are polished to a fine gloss.” Editors' Choice. 93 Points Wine Enthusiast.

Neyers Vista Notre Zinfandel 2018: The 2018 Neyers Vista Notre Zinfandel is aged for a year in neutral French oak barrels, then bottled without fining or filtration. Aromas of bright red fruits with a hint of spice combine beautifully in the glass and make it the perfect red for the Thanksgiving table!
