Green Your Thanksgiving with Parducci Sustainable Wine.

I was delighted to receive two bottles of lovely wine from Mendocino Wine Company in the mail last week. We received a bottle of Parducci California 2008 Pinot Noir $ 12 and a bottle of 2008 Parducci Mendocini County Chardonnay $11.

I wanted to enjoy the wines with the mister, so a date night was planned. Saturday night, we put Eben to bed and the mister and I started our date night with samples of these lovely wines with a fresh baguette and local organic Gouda and brie cheeses. We then had a second glass of each when the mister served our fabulous organic hibachi dinner that he had prepared. We were immediately smitten with Parducci, again. We have loved their wines in the past but both of these wines quickly became some of our favorites.

We found the 2008 Pinot Noir to go wonderfully with the fillet, scallops and shrimp that Mr. Sweet Greens had grilled. We thought the Pinot Noir was very earthy and full. It has a lovely bouquet aroma of juicy berries. It was a wonderful way to start the tastings for the evening.

The 2008 Chardonnay was my absolute favorite. I love the crisp, clean taste and the aromas of apple and pear were fabulous. I love, love, love this wine and think that it went perfectly with the fresh baguette and local organic cheeses.

Both of these wines are very easy to drink, so be careful. Both of these wines would be a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving dinner. You could serve the fantastic 2008 Chardonnay with appetizers and dessert and then enjoy the 2008 Pinot Noir with the main course. Your guests will be delighted and excited.

As always Parducci is locally owned and operated with all of their grapes coming from sustainable family farms. Parducci is 100% green powered (it is the 1st U.S. carbon neutral winery) and all of their wines come in Earth friendly packaging. You still have time to purchase your Parducci wine for Thanksgiving dinner and all of your other upcoming holiday needs. Parducci wine is affordable and delicious, these wines would also make fabulous holiday and hostess gifts.
