Now this is a wine tasting that makes beautiful sense: Steven Sherman over at William Cross Wine Merchants is hosting the sixth annual ~WINES FOR THANKSGIVING~ tasting. Instead of just tasting some wines, there will actually be a 25-pound turkey on hand for munching while tasting the wines listed below. I love wine tastings here, turkey on hand or not—definitely worth checking out.
Here's more from Steven Sherman:
People often forget that a turkey is a game bird, therefore needing wines that have a bit more flavor and intensity, not to mention the accoutrements that surround the bird.
