WI wine recommendation: Try a Gewürztraminer, which is a semi̵sweet wine that has a jasmine–orange blossom nose and apricot notes. It pairs well with pumpkin desserts and is also a popular wine to serve with Thanksgiving meals. For a slightly sweeter wine suggestion, check out Madeira for its hint of caramel and almonds. Of course, there’s always my favorite—Champagne—which is a food–friendly, lightly sweet sparkling wine that goes with just about every dessert imagineable!
