Wine-Girl.net’s Virtual Thanksgiving Dinner Redux: Host and Hostess Edition

Snoopy_thanksgiving

This week, Kevin and I are having a virtual (er, imaginary) Thanksgiving dinner (redux) with some of our wine friends. Monday, our retailer buddies arrived, with some amazing wine favorites in tow. Tuesday, the local wine bloggers dropped by. Today you get our own choices – just a couple of wines that we think might complement a Thanksgiving meal.

As you may have noticed this week, there is no right or wrong for a Thanksgiving wine. Drink what you like, just like your local wine bloggers and retailers.

After the jump, find our own Thanksgiving pairings.

Wine-Girl.net’s Virtual Thanksgiving Dinner Redux: Local Blogger Edition

Thanksgiving_charliebrown

Kevin and I are having a virtual (er, imaginary) Thanksgiving dinner
dinner
(redux) with some of our wine friends. Yesterday, our retailer buddies arrived first, with some amazing wine favorites in tow. In this edition, our local wine blogger friends make a big entrance, and they’ve brought some big wine with them.

I asked each of them to “bring” their favorites for Thanksgiving
dinner. You’ll see that their tastes vary a lot, proving that there is
no right or wrong. Drink what you like, just like your local wine bloggers.

We’ve invited Tim Lemke from CheapWineRatings.com, Mike Rosenberg from The Naked Vine, and Jonathan Seeds from BestDrinkEver.net.

Tomorrow, you’ll get favorites from your host and hostess here at Wine-Girl.net, just in case you’re curious as to what we’d offer our guests.

After the jump, find the outstanding blogger choices.

Wine-Girl.net’s Virtual Thanksgiving Dinner Redux: Retailer Edition

Kevin and I are having a virtual (er, imaginary) Thanksgiving dinner
(redux) with some of our wine friends. In this edition, our retailer friends
have arrived first, and they’ve brought an amazing amount of wine.

I asked each of them to “bring” their favorites for Thanksgiving
dinner. You’ll see that their tastes vary a lot, proving that there is
no right or wrong. Drink what you like, just like our retailer friends.

From Dep’s Fine Wine & Spirits (formerly Liquor Direct), we invited wine buyer Kevin Keith and his assistants Jesse (ed. note: Jesse is no longer with Dep’s) and Shannon. The Party Source is represented by Danny Gold and Jay Erisman.

Tomorrow, you’ll get favorites from our other virtual attendees: the local wine bloggers. On Wednesday, we’ll give you our own recommendations in the host and hostess edition.

Some fantastic retailer favorites are after the jump.

Virtual Thanksgiving Redux

Virtual Thanksgiving

Last year, I had local bloggers and retailers submit the perfect wines for a Thanksgiving feast. Because I have so many new readers this year, and because I’m still somewhat battling the flu and an inability to taste anything other than cough syrup, I’m reposting that series over Monday -Wednesday of this week.

Wishing everyone a happy  Рand healthy РThanksgiving week and a safe shopping weekend!
