Thanksgiving wine is not hard to select.

Each day, we should be thankful for living in the Pacific Northwest, and the bounty every year that our region’s laborers, growers and winemakers provide us makes each Thanksgiving a delicious celebration.

On the day after, don’t turn to the dark side and battle the malls on Black Friday. Instead, look to support local small businesses by heading out to wine country. There, you can try before you buy.

Members of the Willamette Valley Wineries Association, Wine Yakima Valley and the Idaho Wine Commission will open their doors starting on Friday. And number of tasting rooms in the Yakima Valley will offer visitors the opportunity to help Northwest Harvest with their campaign of Taste to Fight Hunger.

If you don’t have time to visit your favorite winery, wine merchant or grocer in time to complement this week’s Thanksgiving meal with one of the following suggestions, then you’ll plenty time to track some down and be ready for Christmas, Hanukkah and/or New Year’s Eve.

Shalom.
