Wine Pairings for your Thanksgiving Dinner

State & Allen

Is your menu planned?

Did you buy a turkey yet?

But let’s talk important things like….what wine are you going to pair with that Thanksgiving feast?


State & Allen is here with a few recommendations that pair well with the flavors of a traditional Thanksgiving meal:



You’ll want a fruity wine that can handle the savory and balance the traditional holiday flavors nicely. Grenache is a great choice because it typically gives off hints of cinnamon and cherry, along with strong fruity undertones, helping it team up with just about anything on the table. Grenache blends work well too.



The United States makes the best Zinfandel in the world, so why not add a bottle to your Thanksgiving meal? Warm spices, fruity undertones, and hints of chocolate complement all aspects of a holiday meal.


Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir effortlessly blends with your holiday festivities as it boasts hints of dry herbs, cloves, citrus, and berries. Pinot Noir makes the holidays more merry and is perfect with just about any holiday meal.



Riesling works better than most whites because it’s a perfect balance of fruit and acidity, which pairs well with the sweet and the savory dishes on your plate.


Wines to Avoid: Cabernet

While we love a good cab as much as the next guy, it just isn’t the right match for a Thanksgiving meal. Cabernets are rich in tannins, which tend to make some aspects of the traditional holiday meal taste sour.


Hopefully, this helps you build your Thanksgiving menu, and if you need a little wine fix in the meantime, you know where to find us! State & Allen has a huge selection of delicious red, white, and sparkling wines to take the edge off of the holiday season. Join us this week at the best restaurant and bar in Uptown Dallas!
