Somm Survival Kit: Thanksgiving Wines!



WINE TASTES BETTER WHEN YOU KNOW MORE ABOUT IT. That’s what the Somm Survival Kits are all about.

This kit: SIX FANTASTIC WINES paired perfectly to go with Thanksgiving dinner. From bubbly to start to dessert wine to end, and a full range in-between!

Each wine is from family-owned wineries. Each wine is from sustainably and organically farmed vineyards. And each wine has its own thing going on, which we cover in detail in the video.

The value of the Somm Kit: INSTANT access to tasting notes, cellar tags, food pairing ideas, articles, links, and a video of sommelier Jason Kallsen tasting through these six wines. Buying the wines through the Somm Kit is cheaper than going to the store and finding them yourself.

A $132 value. Only $12 to buy in (this pays for The Wine Workshop’s work on the project, and is made up through discounts on the wines selected — see here for more explanation), then $110.64 plus tax when you pick up the wines at North Loop Wine and Spirits (or have them delivered or shipped for a small charge).


The Sommelier Survival Kit! Independent sommelier-picked gems of the wine world to keep you stocked up with exciting juice. 

This particular pick:

  • Six wines specifically picked for Thanksgiving enjoyment (which also means they go great with leftovers).
  • INSTANT access to detailed tasting notes, cellar tags, and a video of Jason and Angela tasting through and explaining all the wines.
  • Features six selections including:
    • Our favorite smaller-production Prosecco to start the day off right.
    • Two incredible whites guaranteed to pair beautifully with a traditional Thanksgiving meal. (One Chenin Blanc from a tiny Napa Valley producer, and a hand-selected German Riesling from the Mosel.)
    • Two incredible reds that will be perfect with the Thanksgiving meal: a Pinot Noir from Willamette Valley, and a favorite old-vine Zinfandel from California.
    • One of our favorite dessert wines, perfect with pumpkin or apple pie.

It’s time for Thanksgiving, our favorite holiday, and when it comes to wines to pair with the traditional meal you can’t beat these six. With 2020 being what it is, grab this kit and avoid the crowds. Fire up the iPad or laptop and watch the videos on Thanksgiving! It’s one-stop shopping with a great wine education.
