We seriously love the Thanksgiving holiday–the food, friends, football and especially, the wines. Since the menu tends to be a standard mix of turkey/stuffing/mashed potatoes/candied yams/pumpkin pie we’ve selected a group of wines that are anything but the usual suspects. Also, they are insanely food (and people) friendly.
The breakdown: 1 bubbly Cava, 1 mineral-driven crisp aperitif white, a light bright red, a red with a bit more body and spicy oak, and 1 lovely naturally sweet half dessert half bottle for pumpkin pie.
Christmas is just around the corner and has arrived at our home with all of the desired sweets and delicacies in varied options for Turron! In Spain this is a special time and everyone is looking forward to it. Supermarkets, gourmet stores and bakeries display a huge variety of turrones and other holiday specialties.There is no holiday without turron at the table and everyone buys a bit of this and that to celebrate Christmas with their loved ones.
