Thanksgiving wine recommendations for 2021

Tis the season to be thankful…. for experts like Martine Faye from Africa Gourmet who share their knowledge and tips with us as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving in Dakar! (If you don’t yet know Africa Gourmet, you should. They have shops in Dakar and Saly, and they deliver.) 

As turkey is white meat with firm flesh, it can be paired with both white and red wine.

For white wines, choose something well balanced and more full and smooth than lively, although a slight acidity can be welcome.

For red wines, we want elegant, fruity wines, not too powerful, with controlled tannins and oak aging that’s not too marked.
