This year instead of conducting our own wine tasting and judgment to share the Harvest Card recommended wines for Thanksgiving, we pulled from our existing partners and friends in Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley who were more greatly impacted by the #KincadeFire and thought that we would show them some much-needed love and appreciation for the hard work that they have done and continue to do.

This year we salute @foleysonomawine , @acornwinery , @stuhlmullervineyards@merriamvineyards , @viszlayvineyardsand @meekerwine for making our Thanksgiving this much extra special. Let’s start with a beautiful sparkling from Foley Sonoma when our guests arrive and then transition to the Acorn Rosato ($29.00) and Stuhlmuller Vineyards 2016 Estate Chardonnay ($30.00) for the first courses… As the turkey is carved, it’s your choice: Merriam Vineyards & Winery 2016 Pinot Noir Cuvée, Viszlay Vineyards 2014 Estate Zinfandel ($42.00) and the Meeker Vineyard 2014 Handprint Merlot ($45.00). Each of the wines selected is all under $50 per bottle – instead of assigning side-dishes this year, my suggestion is to assign bottles! Visit to order wines directly from the wineries!

Thank you to our friends and partners in Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley for making all of our Thanksgiving dinners this much more incredible!
