November 2018 Thanksgiving Wall

We’re just about done building the 13th annual Thanksgiving Day wall (AKA Turkey Wall).  With the exception of the Beaujolais Nouveau (which arrives Thursday, 11/15), the rest of the wall should be up and ready to shop on Wednesday, November 7.

Every year, we choose 16 wines (usually 8 whites and 8 reds) that we believe would make a great addition to the Thanksgiving table.  Eight bottles are always $15, and under and eight bottles are $15 – $25.  For those of you with an Everyday Wines bag, choose any six wines from the wall and get 15% off through November 30.  Don’t have a bag?  Purchase one for just $5.50 plus tax.  The bag is also good for 10% off any six bottles year round.

There are a few wines below that are limited in availability, so we will probably be making a couple of substitutions before Thanksgiving Day.  We will try our best to update those changes here.  We look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks!

For more holiday wine ideas, come to our Beaujolais and Burgundy Cru events on Thursday, November 15 and Friday, November 16.
