Fabulous White Wine for Thanksgiving Dinner

This Thanksgiving, try a Pinot Gris, a perfect white wine to pair with your turkey and ham dinner. Pinot Gris is a white wine grape from France that grows a grayish-blue fruit. You may be more familiar with its Italian clone, Pinot Grigio. We are proud to feature Paul Blanck Pinot Gris this November. This fabulous white wine hails from Alsace, France, a region known for producing exceptional white wines. Wine Spectator gives the  2011 Paul Blanck Pinot Gris 91 pts., describing it as showing…

 …accents of honeycomb, lemon wax, camomile and almond with flavors of papaya.

2010 Bodegas Atalaya Almansa Laya

Manager’s Top Wine Choice

We were delighted when we first sampled this red wine blend from Spain.  Bodegas Atalaya Almansa Laya consists of Garnacha and Monastrell grapes.

We were impressed with its stunning bouquet, beautiful dark color and medium body. Captivating flavors  of cherry and red berries, and soft tannins will entice you.

Unique Pumpkin Beers

Pumpkin beers have become the norm from American brewers this time of year. Thanks to their popularity, brewers are coming up with unique ways to present their pumpkin brews.

The folks at Star Hill Brewery in Virginia have added a pumpkin mash to a traditional English-style Brown Porter. The brewer says that “light spicing allows the subtle flavors of pumpkin and roasty porter to shine through”.

And in 6 and 12 packs we’ve got  Pumpkick. This brew from New Belgium Brewing Co offers a tart twist on pumpkin beer, with the addition of cranberries and lemongrass, to the usual cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice.

Dogfishead gives their Punkin Ale a kick, weighing in at 7.0 ABV, much heavier than your average pumpkin beer. Punkin Ale is Dogfish’s most popular seasonal, and something of a flagship beer, having been brewed by their founder prior to the breweries inception.

For a more traditional pumpkin beer try Sarnac’s Pumpkin Ale. Spiced with everything you’d expect – cinnamon, cloves, allspice and ginger. At 3,000 pumpkins per brew, Sarnac is confident “you’ll think you just drank Fall.”
