Seattle Wine Blog

This blog is dedicated to commentary on all aspects of wine, especially short entries to help you find the best wines without the usual hype and spin. These are my frank, independent opinions, usually based on tasting wine at a public event, off the shelf or at the winery. "All creative acts must arise out of a specific soil and flicker with a spirit of place" -D.H. Lawrence

Vegans Declare Turkey Holocaust Day

If you are a vegan, you could spend Thanksgiving at the entrance to a market pamphleting shoppers not to collude in the annual slaughter of millions of living sentient beings. Of course, it is hard enough, to try to stop the slaughter and rape of human beings, let alone other creatures. On the other hand, you might want to spend the day in peace and loving harmony with your friends and family giving thanks for the earth's bounty, in which case, the question arises what wine goes with Tofurkey, tofu and yam. I would go with rose or try Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, or a light red such as Pinot Noir or Beaujolais Nouveau. Save intense, in-your-face, wines such as Syrah and Mourvedre for another day.
