“A Toast to Thanksgivukkah:What wines will you drink when Hanukkah and Thanksgiving share the same day?
Tim Fish, WineSpectator.com | November 2013
“For Thanksgiving I look for lighter- to -medium-body reds like Pinot Noir (or Burgundy), Beaujolais or a red blend that's not too tannic, plus a floral white like Riesling, a delicate Chablis or (even better) a fruit-forward rosé.
For Hanukkah, many of those same wines might be fine with traditional side dishes like latkes or kugel, but when it comes to brisket you'll need something with a little more muscle, although a good Brunello di Montalcino could handle both. Otherwise, and depending on the recipe, look for a Cabernet or Bordeaux red, or something like a Chianti or a Rhône-style blend from California or France. Below, I've pulled together 10 wine suggestions to look for.”
