Being on the North Fork during Thanksgiving is a cook’s delight.  From the turkey farms to farm stand potatoes and the best brussel sprouts to the selection of local wines, your table is set.

Having a selection of wine for your Thanksgiving buffet turns your dinner into a party.   Your guests can enjoy trying pairing different wines with the variety of Thanksgiving dishes.  Here are four North Fork wines for your Thanksgiving table.

If you have the opportunity to take a day trip and get away to the North Fork, visit Bedell Cellars, Corey Creek Vineyards, Pindar and Duckwalk and pick up some or all of these wines.  They make the perfect host(ess) gift.

Bedell Cellars Musee

If 91pts in Wine Spectator Magazine doesn’t give you a hint, then just try this luscious red you can cut with a knife.  A blend of 73% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot and 5% Syrah with notes of coffee, ripe blackberry, raspberry and spice appear on the nose.  Serve some tasting glasses of this with an assorted cheese tray or a beautiful brie en croute as an aperitif $75

Corey Creek Gewurztraminer

A beautiful Thanksgiving wine for your Turkey lovers. It’s also a great compliment to the herbs and spices in your stuffing and gravy. See our stuffing and gravy recipes.  At $35 a bottle, it’s a steal.

Sunflower Chardonnay, Pindar Vineyards

Colors of Cotes d’or will impress you. This wine balances oak and minerality with rich tropical fruit. Your guests will love the versatility of this wine as it will complement any of your savory side dishes and pair perfectly with Turkey sandwiches the next day. Bottles are $18.99. See tips for side dishes .

Duckwalk Vineyards

Who needs dessert if you serve this Blueberry Port?  It’s earthy fruit-forward quality will enhance any of your desserts.  Stay tuned for our dessert recipes for pumpkin souffle and Indian pudding.  And this elegant bottle makes a beautiful gift at $18.95
