Piece de Resistance

I'll bet many of you reading this have already begun working on your Thanksgiving Day meal. Finding the organic turkey, the perfect pie recipe, fuss we only bother with once a year. So . . . what wine are you serving? Your everyday favorites? Now why would you go all out on the meal, and not choose standout bottles of wine to complement your hard work?

At the holidays we're fortunate to get together with friends and family, some of whom we haven't seen since this time last year. I really enjoy treating them to something special. A wine they've never tried, or a stellar version of their tried and true favorite grape. Learn a little something about the bottle, the vineyard history, the winemaker -- and pass this info along with your one of a kind pumpkin pie recipe.
