Does Chardonnay go nicely with turkey? I adore good Chardonnay but not sure what my guests will think. I think Sauvignon Blanc often gets suggested to pair with turkey? That would be much too dry for my mum! I want a really nice wine (though not too pricey) but mustn't be very dry. Thoughts?

I like Gewurztraminer with turkey (either French or Southern Hemisphere).

A Zinfandel blush is adorable with bird.

Hully, Zinfandel blush is too sweet for me (but my mum would probably adore it!) Lily, I'v never had Gewurzthingy but will audition some.

People always say white Burgundies go well - any good examples of those?

I like a nice Prosecco !

I love Prosecco, but I find I get terrible eructations if I combine it with bird.

grin ! I'd start with prosecco and then probably have something solid and red as I much prefer red wine...

When the Zinfandel runs dry, we always have a lovely homemade Elderberry that Grandpa brings, it's really good with chops! (We have to have those as well as bird for the aunts).

LOL, notwaving
MaryAnn, oooooh I Luuuuurve Prosecco! Was planning to have it during the day but want a still wine with lunch, I think.

Chablis, Viognier or Sauvignon Blanc

Will guzzle the Champagne whilst I cookhide in the kitchen from my Mother and PILs.

Probably a sancerre or chablis, with wraparound prosecco
