Here's a little fun trivia for you today:
What is the difference between Thanksgiving dressing and stuffing?
The difference between the two seemed so obvious to me, once I hear the answer that is! You see, stuffing is just that, something that is stuffed INSIDE the turkey for cooking, whereas dressing is something you cook OUTSIDE of the turkey. Ahhhhh! That makes sense.
However, what is important to learn here, is we have FREE dressing today! That's right, Hannah has done it again, making a homemade dressing that is out of this world as per City Spirits tradition. This time around, she went extremely gourment, and even included ingredients such as bacon and lamb. You have not had dressing like this before, so make sure to stop in. We'll also have two Thanksgiving wines available for tasting, and an entire Thanksgiving Wines Buyer's Guide for you to use as you pick the perfect pairs for your traditional dinner.
Here's just two examples of what we recommend, and these are the two wines we're pouring today and tomorrow:
A to Z Pinot Noir. Oregon.
This pinot noir has aromas of Bing cherries and blueberries, with hints of orange and white pepper, and beautiful violet undertones. The mouth is bright with acidity, with silky tannins and flavors of cherry that are present throughout. Flavors similar to that of the aromas can be found, with a slight spiciness to give the wine balance. This pinot is lively, light, and easy to drink. A great selection for grillled salmon, turkey, duck, and portobello mushrooms.
Trimbach Riesling. Alsace, France.
The Trimbach family has a wine-making history that dates back four centuries, and you can surely tell when you taste this riesling. So smooth and delicious, with stone fruits and beautiful acidity. Riesling is known for its great food-pairing abilities, but you'll find that this riesling pairs especially well with sushi, grilled fish, and spicy foods. Also a great wine to serve with Thanksgiving dinner.
