Wine Enthusiasts:

My husband and I have just started enjoying some fine wines. I thought it would be nice to have a bottle for our Thanksgiving dinner, which will be a turkey.

Any suggestions as to yummy wines that are in a decent price range to complement our meal?

Happy Turkey Day!

I just bought a bottle of Robert Mondavi Woodbridge 2003 Chardonnay to have with Thanksgiving dinner. If I remember correctly, it was about $8. or $9.

It's a tradition around here (at least with people I know) to have Beaujolais Nouveau. It is this years vintage of the Beaujolais, so it is still light and fruity, especially for a red. Plus, it is supposed to bring good luck if you drink it before New Years. Check your wine stores, it just got in around here this week.

I just found the Beaujolais today at a specialty store and picked up a bottle. I can't wait to try it. I like fruity wines and the good luck sounds nice too!

If you like bubbles, Barefoot Bubbly is pretty darn good. If not, I prefer a pinot. I picked up a Pinot Grigio from Vendange, a California winery, recently that was very nice. I'd never heard of them before and don't regret the purchase at all.

Found a delightful dessert wine recently. My husband brought it home and I was skeptical, but tried it and loved it. The Chocolate Shoppe chocolate red wine. Fantastic with cheesecake, strawberries dipped in chocolate, cookies. Don't know how it would go with pumpkin pie, though.
