The balmy weather put a smile on our face last week, as did our witty Tuesday guest, Jay McInerney, and Wednesday's Drinkology team of James Waller and Ramona Ponce.
Tuesday 11/14 come to Bottlerocket for an Eclectic Salon celebrating The Best Things to Do in New York, a quirky and excellent new guide book. See below for details. Mark your calendars for a wonderful upcoming event: chef, entrepreneur and author Danny Meyer will be at the store on Wednesday, December 13.
Now our focus is on the holidays. Below you will find our Thanksgiving feast suggestions. Ever get hung up on how much wine to bring? Waller and Ponce gave us a practical formula to calculate quantities of wine when planning a party:
P is for number of people; H is for total hours for the party; D is number of drinks. One bottle of wine serves five glasses. Try the formula and let us know if it worked for you.
Time to plan for Thanksgiving and choose the wines. Here are our suggestions, grouped by how you'll serve them. Come in and stock up for the festivities!
These wines drink well on their own or with hors d'oeuvres. Serve them up and whet your appetite before the feast.
Huia. Sauvignon Blanc 2006. New Zealand > Marlborough. $21
With the Meal
The typical Thanksgiving table presents a wide range of flavors, sweet and savory. We picked these wines for their adaptability and distinctive character. Delicious matches for turkey with all the trimmings.
WHITES AND ROSÉS
Cantalupo. Il Mimo 2005. Italy > Piedmont >> Colline Novaresi. $13
Chateau Lascombes. Margaux 2003. France > Bordeaux >> Margaux. $67
Campbells. Rutherglen Tokay NV. Australia > Victoria. $20
