Usually I reach for a dry Riesling or a partially-oaked Chardonnay, but if my notorious sweet tooth kicks in or I'm opting out of dessert for the night, Gewürztraminer hits the spot. Often on the floral side and somewhat effervescent, this wine can be a refreshing alternative to your go-to white, especially when you're looking for something that will go well with food.

Gewürztraminer (pronounced Geh-VERTZ-trah-mee-nur) is the wine that most reminds me of Thanksgiving. It's aromatic and slightly spicy, sometimes off-dry with hints of lychees and nutmeg. It's right at home with sage-rubbed turkey, and it's stellar paired with stuffing.
