Thanksgiving dinner may be the single most difficult meal to pair wines with, simply because of the wide variety of dishes that grace the table all at once. It is nearly impossible to find one wine that will complement every part of the feast, so one option is to offer different types of wine to complement certain dishes. Bella of the blog Wine and Good Food is a great resource when it comes to pairing wines with food.

Obviously on Thanksgiving the main focus is always the turkey. Luckily, she has found a rosé that pairs well with turkey and his good friend, the cranberry. Here's what she has to say about the Michel Torino Malbec Rosé that retails for a mere $13!

"It pours a bright strawberry color in the glass. The nose is very fragrant with aromas of melon, cherries and a hint of rosemary. The palate is packed with fruit flavors including notes of cherry and strawberry. The finish is dry and spicy with lingering white pepper."

I don't know about you, but that description makes me want to drink that dry rosé right now!

She also recommends a moscato to pair with your apple, pumpkin and other sweet fruit pies. These are only the first two of a series of posts she's working on for the days leading up to Thanksgiving, so keep checking back to Wine and Good Food this week and next for more of Bella's recommendations for wines that pair well with all sorts of dishes on your Thanksgiving table.
