We try to hide it, but even the best of us foodie folk squirm with anxiety at the prospect of Thanksgiving dinner. All those competing ingredients piled together on a single plate! There's no hope for a wine - any wine - to resonate. In past years I have been known to shut off completely and focus on other projects like reorganizing the glassware cabinet, sorting through old photos, and cleaning out the area under the bathroom sink just to distract myself from the somber task of sentencing a wine to Thanksgiving.

My husband and I were out to dinner last night with a couple of friends who live in a small town in upstate New York, and who are just getting interested in wine. Well, technically they live in a village. It's the kind of place where everyone knows who you are before you've signed the last of the loan docs on your home and it's crucial to stay on the right side of the plow guy. It's charming and safe and probably a whole host of other complimentary things, but it's not exactly the best place to live if you want to start exploring wine past Woodbridge Chardonnay. And let's not even start in on their busy lives, which makes the four-hour trip to Manhattan for a better selection as likely as a trip to the moon, and the "spare time" to read wine magazines and books to learn more about as common as a three-headed baboon.
