I always love visiting my friends at San Antonio Living–today, my picks for what to bring to Thanksgiving dinner. For all you dessert lovers, you MUST grab a pie this Thanksgiving from Bumdoodlers in Boerne and Kerrville. Every pie is made in-house and just like grandma’s — they have cheesecakes, too. This well-kept Texas secret sells showstoppers like the Chocolate Chocolate pie and the Buttermilk pie, and both can be preordered for Thanksgiving. To pair with your Thanksgiving feast, I also have four wines that will pair perfectly. Watch the full segment here.

My Wine Finds:
Rodney Strong Sonoma Chardonnay is a traditional California-style bottle that’s aged in oak and has buttery vanilla notes. This wine is sippable, but also stands up to all of the rich foods on your Thanksgiving table. $17
Made in France, the Les Charmes Macon-Lugny Chardonnay is a Burgundian-style Chardonnay. It is crisp with toasty notes of pear and apple. $13
This is one of my go-to’s: the Becker Vineyards Provencal Rosé. You’ll taste strawberries and dried cherries with floral aromatics and it pairs with a variety of different foods. $9
Lastly, the ultimate wine for your ham and turkey — Pinot Noir. My two recommendations are from Etude Lyric and The Calling. Both are quite flexible and can pair with a variety of heartier holiday foods thanks to their rich, dark fruit profiles. $20, $35
