Thanksgiving! Togetherness And A Bottle Of Wine…

Thanksgiving Dinner With WineTo me, nothing describes Thanksgiving better than the word togetherness. Whether it be with family, friends, co-workers or someone you just met, being together is what seems to make Thanksgiving come to life. Togetherness is what makes Thanksgiving worth celebrating.

While this year may bring some challenges, it is my deepest wish that wherever you may be this Thanksgiving holiday, that you may find and share some togetherness with others. Whether it be by phone with someone 1,000 miles away or in person.

Break out some homemade wine. Maybe even pass a few bottles out as gifts, and experience the joy that Thanksgiving was meant to bring.

I personally like to make a red Zinfandel for Thanksgiving. It’s big, jammy flavors seem to couple well with the turkey and stuffing. Plus, it’s not a complicated wine. It’s one that is easy to like. Even non-wine-drinkers will appreciate the zest and compliment it brings to the meal.

Here’s a toast: to hoping you have a pleasant and enjoyable Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving,
Ed Kraus

  1. Hi Ed,
    I’m a first generation wine maker and have used lots of your recipes. I have always (the last 30 years) enjoyed a nice crisp Gewürztraminer and Beaujolais Nouveau for Thanksgiving. I make an Old Vine Zinfandel and maybe I’ll take your advice and have it in 2021. Be safe, keep the blogs coming and have a “Grand” holiday season. Cheers and “In Vino Veritas”!

  2. Thanks Ed, how well spoken. I’m sure you speak for the thousands of us glad 2020 is almost over. That being said, I like your idea of homemade wine but since I don’t have any Petite Syrah or Syrah that’s been bottled, I’ll enjoy some Madeira, Champagne and Beaujolais Nouveau. Homemade wine, definitely at Christmas.

  4. I started making wine in the 90s & there has been a homemade bottle of wine at every thanksgiving table since ! (some times more) This TRADATION could not have been possible without Kraus’s help, advice & equipment. Thanks Kraus!
