Thanksgiving Wines from Trader Joe's | Alyssa Pacaut

The turkey is in the oven and the table is set, but what the heck are you going to pour alongside that Thanksgiving Dinner? T-Day is notoriously challenging when it comes to wine pairing. With so many different dishes and emotions around the table, it’s no wonder!


The easiest way to approach wine for Thanksgiving is to keep it light and serve easy-drinking, fruit-forward wines that will go great with everything from the bird to the sweet potatoes and stuffing.

Here’s a list to choose from if you’re standing in the Trader Joe’s wine aisle. It’s broken down into light reds, rosés, and something sparkly if you’re in a celebratory mood. My suggestion is to go with a case of one of the affordable wines, but I’ve included a few higher-priced bottles if you are looking to bring something to impress.

Light Reds
Lazy Bones Cabernet Franc, $6.99
• Caretaker Pinot Noir, $9.99
• Liberté Pinot Noir, $9.99

Rosés
Les Portes de Bordeaux Bordeaux Rosé, $5.99
J.L Quinson Côtes de Provence Rosé, $6.99
• Chateau Miraval Cotes de Provence Rosé, $21.99

Something Sparkly
• Incanto Prosecco, $12.99
• Mumm Napa Brut Rosé, $16.99
• Moet & Chandon Imperial Brut, $39.99

P.S. In case you are wondering, I’m taking the J.L. Quinson and Lazy Bones to my aunt’s house on Thursday.
