Our Thanksgiving Favorites

Aunt Lucy’s Thanksgiving Toast + Far Niente Chardonnay


“The second we sit down for Thanksgiving dinner, our glasses already full of our classic Far Niente Chardonnay. Aunt Lucy stands to give her annual speech. Addressing the enormous dining table filled with family, she starts with the common blessings – love for those no longer with us and gratitude galore – before giving the next generation a half-joking earful for not visiting more, staying in touch, or having enough kids. Even though we know she couldn’t be more serious, we all raise our glasses in appreciation of her dedication to strong family ties and continued traditions.”

John McCarthy, Director of Vineyard Operations

Rosemary Lamb + Nickel & Nickel Suscol Ranch Merlot


“We’re all about Thanksgiving lamb with Nickel & Nickel Suscol Merlot at our house. No one in the family likes turkey and we’re Greek, so we roast lamb with fresh rosemary and pair it with oyster stuffing. Napa Valley Merlot is so supple and silky on the palate, plus those juicy berry flavors from Suscol Ranch harmonize beautifully with the savory lamb and fragrant herbs. It’s wonderfully symbiotic.”

Barbra Christo, Senior Events Manager

Roast Turkey, Sweet Yams and Sausage Stuffing + EnRoute Northern Spy Vineyard Pinot Noir


“Each year, my family gathers to cook a traditional feast: turkey, sweet yams, and my mother’s amazing sausage and roasted nut stuffing. We always serve it with one of our EnRoute Russian River Valley Pinots. They are the ultimate Thanksgiving partners. Last year, it was the Northern Spy Vineyard Pinot Noir, and it paired perfectly with everything on the menu.”
