The Forgotten Holiday

Thanksgiving seems like the forgotten holiday. The excitement of Halloween leads right into the sales for Christmas gifts, and in all the rush to grab that deal, Thanksgiving gets lost. Thanksgiving is the holiday that should be given some time, for it has a great backstory. Two groups of people spending time together to celebrate a bounty. Sharing, helping, and then enjoying a meal with laughter and understanding. Many people question this happy version of history but what sticks is the fact that there are things that we are thankful for and we should take a day to celebrate and enjoy the company of others.

Food always goes along with celebrations, and we hope that there is some kind of wine or cider on your table as well.   Our staff is often asked what to pair or serve with meals and Thanksgiving is no exception.  Below are the wines and ciders that will be on their tables.

Judy plans to have a variety of Jack’s Hard Ciders on her table, along with her favorite, Cabernet Franc and the sweet Grapeshot for her daughter in law.

Brenda Lynn says that turkey, taters and Wheatfield White will melt in your mouth.

Bonnie thinks that Jack’s Original would be nice before dinner and likes Wheatfield White with dinner.  Plus, she says, the bottle will look nice on the table.


Our president Jonathan, say that our 2013 Merlot belongs at Thanksgiving because it is a crowd pleaser.  We are pretty sure, however, he will be having some Jack’s Hard Cider as well.
