Best Thanksgiving Wines - The Reverse Wine Snob Picks!

"What are the best Thanksgiving wines?" It's a question we get asked a lot. The great thing is that there's no one perfect wine -- there are lots of picks that will do the job, but pairing a wine with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy and more is no easy task either.
In this list we gather some of our very favorite Thanksgiving wines from over the last few years. We cover everything from the obvious (Pinot Noir) to the not so obvious (Rosé) to the mostly unknown (Cinsault and Zweigelt). From reds to whites to rosés to sparkling wines to even a few dessert wines we highlight the wines that should be gracing your table in our best Thanksgiving wines list.
One last note before you dive into our recommendations - always remember rule #2 of our Ten Tenets of Reverse Wine Snobbery. If Moscato or good old Cabernet makes you happy, don't worry if it's not on our list, drink what you like (especially on Thanksgiving)!
