Thanksgiving in a Bag

Are you looking for the right wine to bring to Thanksgiving dinner? Arlington Wine & Liquor has solved your problem.  They have Thanksgiving in a bag. Brilliant idea - just pick up the bag and it has wines for every course from different regions of the word and a price tag that won't dig too deep into your pocket - $59.99. Your bag is stocked with a sparkling wine, two reds, two whites and a dessert wine, tasting notes and a recipes.

Begin your celebration with Filipetti Prosecco, a slightly off-dry Prosecco from Italy that is full of ripe fruit flavors. Enjoy this as you hang around chatting with your appetizers in hand.

When you sit down for the big meal there are two whites - Chateau Ste. Michelle Pinot Gris for those who like a dry, clean, crisp white wine and Brotherhood Winery's Riesling.  This blue bottle Riesling (as I call it) is a fruity semi dry Riesling that will match most foods on your table.

If you like red wines with your meal, in the bag is Angeline Pinot Noir from California.  A little tid-bit, the Angeline brand is part of Martin Ray Winery in Santa Rosa California.  This Pinot is said to have bright red berry flavors layered with creamy vanilla, smoke, some tea spice and toasty oak.  If you like your reds a little bolder, they've included Dancing Bull Zinfandel.

End your meal with dessert and Tomassello Cranberry Wine. Tomasselo Winery is located in the Garden State - yes New Jersey.  This wine will taste great chilled with cheesecake if you still have room.  If you can't wait until dessert to try this Cranberry Wine, try your Bartending hand and add some vodka and fresh lime juice for a Thanksgiving Cosmopolitan.

Most of all, enjoy your day with family and friends!
