It is getting close, people. I just returned from the grocery store with not one, but two turkeys! I’m shopping a little early to fill all my needs. This is serious stuff because I put in a lot of hours at the stores and I am the one responsible for putting it all together. I love this holiday because the food and wine are front and center. I’ll watch some football and play some games with the kids, but I will have some great tasting wines with all that goes on. I like Pinot Noir, Gamay, Zinfandel and some other fruitier reds for Thanksgiving, but the bulk of our wine drinking will be white with Riesling, Chenin Blanc, and Pinot Gris/Grigio taking it to the end zone! Here are a few goodies I am thankful for including a fun wine from Kasota, Minnesota for all you locavores out there:

The producer of Lot 75 is a highly-respected winery in the Russian River Valley that has been producing 90 plus-rated wines for years. We’ve worked with them for many vintages to continue making this incredible wine available at this fantastic price point.

Chateau de Montfort Vouvray Demi-Sec 2015

90+ Cellars Riesling Mosel
The grapes are picked from vines grown in predominantly slate soils on steep slopes throughout the Mosel Saar Ruwer valleys. To be qualified as “steep slopes” 100% of the fruit must come from classified vineyards which have an incline of at least 30%. In this area of Mosel, the average incline of vineyards is 45%. Fermentation occurs in stainless steel, resulting in a crisp, off-dry style Riesling. Fragrant aromas of white peach, nectarine and Bosc pear backed by pastoral scents of hay or straw. Slightly sweet and refreshingly juicy.
Regular Price $12.99
Rewards Price $10.96 750ml
Prices good thru December 13th, 2018
