How does a winemaker celebrate Thanksgiving? We asked our winemaker Darice Spinelli to get the inside track. Well, we won’t keep you in suspense—Darice doesn’t know what she will bring to the holiday table yet. “Honestly, 2011 is the only vintage I’m thinking about right now,” she says, laughing. “I’ll bring Nickel & Nickel, Far Niente and Dolce with me for sure.” With that selection, she can’t go wrong, never mind the vintage.
But before the big dinner, she and her family will converge at the local park for the Turkey Bowl, where neighbors battle it out each year in football. Now that the kids are teenagers, the games are rougher than they used to be. “We all take Ibuprofen two hours before the game!” she says.
Football and a meal with family sounds wonderful to us, and no matter how you choose to celebrate the coming holiday, may you find Nickel & Nickel in your glass.
