Thanksgiving Wines to Take You From Dinner to Dessert

Thanksgiving is all about the pie, am I right? Okay, there’s dinner, too; but really the turkey, ham, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and rolls are really just a means to a sweet and satisfying end: pie. If your family is anything like mine, everyone has a favorite pie that absolutely must be on the table at Thanksgiving. But when you’re busy making all those pies (or thawing them, picking them up from the bakery, or whatever else you need to do it to get them on your table and in your stomach), it’s hard to come up with just the right way to pair them.

But the question is: does it really matter?

Cookie Butter and Wine
