We're looking for silver linings wherever we can find them. Here's one: 2020 is a great excuse to ditch the Thanksgiving crowd pleasers and double down on wine YOU really love. Read on for how our team is leaning in this Turkey Day.
Name a wine region better suited to rich sides, savory seasonings and crispy skinned birds! Juran whites are powerful, its reds are fresh, and Juran sparkling wine rubs shoulders with Champagne. It's one stop holiday dinner shopping.

Working in wine, Thanksgiving has always been a work day for me first and a holiday second. My day begins in the shop where the team caps a busy morning shift with a toast, and transitions to dinner at home. My wife, brother and I all work in wine so we'll fill our table with a spread of bottles to arm us for long, lazy courses.
This juicy, chillable Austrian blend from a natural producer is kind of the 'gatorade wine' I want to crack with co-workers for a post-shift, pre-dinner toast.
Have you SEEN the lineup of mags at the shop?! I can't resist grabbing one of these on my way home for dinner.
2019 WENZEL 'VOODOO CHILD WILD + FREE' PINOT GRIS, BURGENLAND, AUSTRIA
Sometime around the second helping of turkey I need a palate cleanser to keep my momentum. This skin contact quencher hits the refresh button.

Thanksgiving is always a little unusual for us because my partner is a vegetarian. But because Steven is a chef at Ruffian, it's also always exciting to see what will be on on our Thanksgiving plates.
2018 Turley Wine Cellars Old Vines Zinfandel, California
Zinfandel and poultry are the a go to pairing for the holidays, but Turley Estate does a great job of making these supple reds that are perfect with apps. like cheese, vegetables, and pasta.
2018 Cantina Giardino Sophia Bianco, Italy
With the gathering being smaller this year, I am bringing bolder skin contact wines to the table - this Fiano is perfect for root roasts. It's bright with firm tannins.
Recaredo Cava Brut Nature Terrers 2014
There's never a bad time for some bubbles! This is a go vintage Cava that's high tones cut through fatty cheese and has these amazing toasted qualities without costing an arm or leg.
Take advantage of the small group this year to pull the cork on an older wine that unfurls over the course of your meal.

I love hosting but like to have a cocktail that's easy for everyone to make, even if it's just few of us. A Last Word is all equal parts and doesn't require too many moving parts, but still elevates the night a bit.
HOW TO MAKE A LAST WORD
3/4 ounce GIN
3/4 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
3/4 ounce maraschino LIQUOR
(or any orange liqueur works)
3/4 ounce GREEN CHARTREUSE
If you don't have maraschino on hand, sub in any orange liqueur - it works just as well.
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice, and shake briskly for 10 seconds.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

I'll be spending Thanksgiving with my CIA friends this year! As a Korean-American, my dinner table is always slightly untraditional on this day and I love grabbing a healthy mix of Old World and New World wines.
2016 Pax Wine Cellars Gamay, California
Nothing says Thanksgiving like gamay, and that's even more special with this Sonoma Coast version. It's a little more earthy in style but still has generous fruit and soft tannins - such a crowd pleaser.
2019 Stein Palmberg Terrassen Riesling Kabinett Troken, Germany
I always have a crisp white on hand that can handle the various seasonings in Asian cuisine. Uli Stein never disappoints and I'm expecting stony, mineral-driven nuance that's gonna be perfect for what I'm cooking.
Wild Turkey Long Branch Straight Bourbon Whiskey
I love amaro, but no one in my bubble likes it so I'm introducing a less viscous spirit. The Long Branch is an easy sipper with its creamy mouthfeel, touches of spice, mild dryness and just a kiss of smoke.
Let's not overcomplicate things: every single wine here has been selected to pair with roast white meats like your delicious turkey.
