Last year we covered so much in last year's Thanksgiving episode that we barely left anything for this year.
We didn't just want to do a recap or recite the same old wines that everyone else recommends. So for this Winter Solstice Plus (for our international listeners)/Thanksgiving edition, we talk about how to incorporate your original heritage into the feast this year.
Here is the LINK
After we give thanks to some folks for comments, we address:
- The basics of food and wine pairing
- The largest ethnic groups from which most people in the US derive -- German, English, Italian, French, Hungarian, Portuguese, and Austrian -- and which wines associated with these countries will pair with the big day.
- More detail on food and wine pairing.
- German Riesling (Spätlese, Auslese, Spätburgunder/Pinot Noir)
- White Bordeaux
- Italian Fiano d'Avellino, Falanghina, Barbera
- The white wines of Alsace and Rhône, Rosé (not more than 1 year old -- forgot to mention in the podcast that wines like Tavel and Bandol do age longer)
- Port, Vinho Verde
- Grüner Veltliner, Blaufrankish, St. Laurent
