2 min read

On November 2, 2022 at 8:30pm EST / 5:30pm PST, subscribers will have access to our live mini clinic on wine pairing tips for Thanksgiving — that smorgasbord of a holiday that flummoxes even the most informed of wine pros.

Below you will find everything you need as a paying subscriber to access the event: a description of the class and your Zoom credentials to access the event.

Class Description

Thanksgiving is a hodge-podge of salty, sweet, bitter and sour … it triggers nearly every geographical zone of your tongue, sometimes to the point of being overwhelming. The last thing you need is a wine to pour fuel on that fire. But what about wines that enhance, complement and instill a sense of contentment? They’re out there, and I want to help you find them with some simple wine pairing tips for Thanksgiving.

In this half-hour mini-clinic wine class, I will offer guidance on the attributes you ought to seek out for your Thanksgiving wine selections, and give you a few of my personal favorites from the areas I know best: France, Italy, Germany and Austria.

What Will I Need For This Class?

We won’t be tasting at this class, but should you choose to open a wine during the talk, I’d recommend a Sicilian Frappato or Nero d’Avola (or a blend of the two, called Cerasuolo di Vittoria), a traditional method sparkling wine or a dry Chenin Blanc. I’ll be discussing several wines, but I know those three at least will get a mention for various reasons.

See you on November 2!
