Happy Wine Wednesday!
Wine critics have spoken – choose Haywire wines this Thanksgiving! Also, join us for a fundraiser benefiting PADS, participate in a winemakers dinner, and visit us this weekend for deals.
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and wine critics have chosen Haywire wines to pair perfectly with your turkey (and non-turkey) feast.
While there are many options for pairing with stuffing, let’s stick to some fairly common components like sourdough bread, fresh sage, hazelnuts, onion, celery, and a good dusting of salt and pepper. You have some distinct flavours going on here, but it’s the sage that’s catching my eye. When we talk South Okanagan terroir, there’s plenty of sage that grows wild, and with its aromatics in the breeze, it’s not uncommon for wines to express a little of this influence. Let’s put a red wine on the table but not get too heavy, since we don’t want to overwhelm any subtle flavours. Haywire 2012 Gamay Noir is a softer red that has a velvety texture and a slightly earthy side with wild mushroom, dried plums, currants, and a whisper of that telltale B.C. sage.

Homegrown wine is always appropriate when giving thanks. Here, crunchy red cherries and strawberries are punctuated by cinnamon and clove. Go uber-local and serve salmon. Read the full article here.
