Talking the Big Bird & Wine
Whether it’s your turn to cook and serve the big bird this year or you’re just looking for the right wine to bring your host — try these wines that pair best, along with tips for the perfect big bird.
The mild flavour of turkey matches well with VQA Ontario wines in a variety of styles and varietals. Ontario’s cool-climate sparkling whites and bubbly rosés have natural food-friendly acidity and a range of sweetness levels. If you’re serving whites, take pairing cues from the sides: a local oak-aged Chardonnay complements a chestnut stuffing, while herbaceous Ontario Sauvignon Blanc partners with green veggies such as beans, fresh peas or Brussels sprouts. For reds, Ontario Pinot Noir’s fruity character tastes perfect with turkey and earthy sides, such as mushrooms and onions.
