Everyone loves the person who brings a bottle of wine to a party. What do you do, though, if you don’t have the extra funds to be spending $50 or even $100 on a quality bottle of wine? This time of year, money tends to be tight. With Christmas just around the corner, you don’t want to be pouring your extra cash into wine your friends are just going to chug down without appreciating. This year, try serving them a less expensive but still tasty bottle of wine that perfectly partners with Thanksgiving dinner.
Friendsgiving is the term used to describe a Thanksgiving that’s hosted by friends when you can’t get home for Turkey Day. Being the busiest travel weekend of the year, hosting a Friendsgiving has become more and more popular. And what’s a Friendsgiving without wine?
This rosé made Business Wire’s top cheap wines for Thanksgiving list at number two. This crisp wine has refreshing strawberry and raspberry flavors that combine with a sharp acidity to make it a perfect choice to drink with roasted vegetables and a hearty turkey.
This wine was the number one pick for Business Wire’s 2015 list of cheap Thanksgiving wines; the website described it as the “top sparkling wine pick this year with hints of pear, green apple, bright citrus, and a surprising dry finish.”
Teruzzi & Puthod Rondolino Vernaccia di San Gimignano, 2009, ($11.99)
This Italian entry, which was ranked among the top 10 wines from its region, is a medium-bodied white. It is the only white wine from Tuscany to have been given DOCG status, making it an impressive, yet affordable wine to serve.
