I use a cup of white wine in the turkey roasting pan--usually a pinot grigio (Ferrani Carano or Pighin Friuli) and serve the remainder And whatever red I have on hand.

I'll add another vote for Pinot Noir. The Cuvaison offering is one of my favorites.

Most of the recommendations I've read online suggest a dryer wine, but I know my guests prefer sweeter wines.

I personally love Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, but even that may be too dry for some of my guests. Chardonnay comes to mind -- as does Riesling. Perhaps I should have bottles of each on hand, lol!

Any suggestions/recommendations?

Brookside, This article from Huffington Post might give you some good ideas for Thanksgiving wine. It leans toward the sweeter choices:

Have a great holiday!

Another vote for sparkling, Prosecco or Asti. Keep some Pinot Noir on hand for the red drinkers. We always have a bunch of different flavors at our table, including shrimp and spicy stuff. The sparkling wines go fine with everything, especially with all the richness. And it kind of freshens the palate in-between sampling the variety of different foods. I think that's the biggest benefit for our buffet.

It goes into dessert too. Or you can add a drop of any liqueur afterwards to pair the flavor to sweets. You wouldn't do that with wine.

We'll be having a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, ourselves. Urlar is a nice one, and not too dry.

Why don't ppl recommend more American wines? This holiday is part of our national heritage & wouldn't it make more sense to imbibe something that reflects the fruits of our labor? I'm poppin the corks on some Ridge zin blends, Navarro's Gerwurz & Riesling & Copain's Tous Ensemble pinot.

I like what I like. I don't really care where it comes from. My (American, Illinois resident) dad makes wine...and I prefer his. But he doesn't make whites, he makes reds, and I'm serving white with Thanksgiving dinner.

If you can get your hands on any...Cranberry Wine from Pasek Cellars in Washington State. It's not a cheap grape wine flavored with cranberry, Pasek specializes in real fruit wines.
The cranberry wine is about the best thing I've ever tasted with Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. Equally good is cranberry wine mixed with sparkling cider.
