Vega Sindoa Viura/Chardonnay – A Possibility for Turkey Day

Written by Rocky Mountain Woman on October 17, 2012 – 12:02 pm -

This post is in honor of the letter “V” and part of Jenny Matlock’s Alphabet Thursday. For more vivacious “V” posts, please click here

I have been tirelessly searching for a wine for you to serve with your Thanksgiving Turkey… insert heavy sigh and long suffering look….

I may have found one! At least you should try it (maybe with a turkey sandwich) and see what you think. It’s got notes of lemon and green apple, it’s crisp and unusual. If you try it and like it, let me know because I’m still searching for the perfect turkey wine which is important because if the wine is wonderful, it won’t matter if the turkey is a tad overcooked or the mashed potatoes are a little lumpy.

    I am not much of a judge on wines. I like my homemade country wines, and that’s about it. I hope this one works for you.

  2. Betty Says:

    Why didn’t I think of that??? Lots of wine before dinner and then I don’t have to get all stressed if the meal doesn’t turn out 100% OK. Wine for me and the guests.

  3. Rocky Mountain Woman Says:


    It works beautifully! Good appetizers, nice wine and NO ONE cares about anything else…



  4. Raw Thoughts and Feelings Says:

    That is a pretty bottle..and I won’t be able to help you as I can’t drink..

  5. Lola Says:

    Great *V* post and wine – hope it works for you too!

    Thanks for stopping by. Have a great Alphabe-Thursday and weekend too!

  6. Sue Anderson Says:

    Since I usually have both of these issues (slightly overcooked turkey and lumpy mashed potatoes), maybe I should start serving wine!


  7. VBR Says:

    Thanks for the tip about this wine choice. I am going to pass it on to my son’s sweetheart. She loves to take new wines to her family’s dinners. This one sound lovely!

  8. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella Says:

    I wish I could drink more wine! And that we had Thanksgiving too! 😀

  9. Anita Schiller Terry Says:

    Back in the day when I did drink wine, a hint of green apple and lemon would have sounded wonderful. But having given up wine and other alcohol many years ago now, I can say that it still sounds delightful, although I won’t be sampling it. :)

    And, of course, “V” for vino.

  11. JDaniel4's Mom Says:

    I love the label!

  12. Riet Says:

    You know so much about whine. I only drink it and I love it. Love your post.

  13. Leovi Says:

    Yes, I love good wine, has good color.

  14. Jamie Says:

    Great “V” post. I love Chardonnay and that bottle is very cute. I will definitely have to try it.

  15. Jim Says:

    I love it, R.M. Mrs. Jim might like it. For sure it starts with a letter “V” so it is perfect for today. Some suggest a Spanish cheese to go with it. Try that with appetizers before the Turkey is served.

    “Vega Sindoa Viura Chardonnay – This Spanish favorite is full-bodied with crisp acidity like a bright green apple and delicate floral aromas. Pair with — Manchego, a traditional Spanish cheese, is a great partner to this summer white as the sheep’s milk used in the Manchego brings a touch of sweetness for a true Spanish romance …” came out with a Google search and ended with Summer Wine. Another showed the price to be about $10.

    I will let you know if we try it. Mrs. Jim is in to Two-buck-Chuck right now.

  16. Rocky Mountain Woman Says:

    Thanks for the idea about the cheese!

    Tell Mrs. Jim I love two buck chuck! Their Sauvignon Blanc is good also. I always buy a case when I’m on the coast because you can’t get it here in UT…

  17. Judie McEwen Says:

    I definitely need to get this if it goes with overcooked turkey and lumpy mashed potatoes!

  18. debra Says:

    Hmm…I was just thinking that we should drink all sorts of Wine all Week for our upcoming W posts….

  19. Rocky Mountain Woman Says:


    What a great idea! Maybe we could just do a whole Alpha Thurs. on wine!

    You are a girl after my own heart….



  20. Phyllis Ryan Says:

    Looks good and I always enjoy your wine selections. Love 2 buck chuck, but it is not available in Florida.

  21. Jen Says:

    Oh…you have made me hungry for a real traditional thanksgiving dinner! Yum!

  22. Andrea Says:

    Wow, that looks great! But we don’t celebrate your Thanksgiving with that much of food, so i am thinking of doing your older omelette post instead. That is much reasonable for us than turkey!

  23. Esther Joy Says:

    Our son-in-law is our wine connoisseur! I’m not much of a wine drinker, but he surely knows his stuff!

  24. Gattina Says:

    Never heard of this wine, but if it’s good for turkey it must be dry ! Cheers !

  25. Maria@PersonalizedSketches Says:

    haha…your sense of humor is great :o) hm…the solution to any cooking mishaps in the kitchen?

    Blessings & Aloha!
    Thank you for stopping by! and for mentioning “Unbroken”…I love reading books written in that time – 1940’s. I haven’t read that one, but will have to keep it in my books to look for. I am off now to catch up a wee bit on some of your past posts…I seem to barely manage posting my once a week posts, but hope to get a little more consistent at blog posting and visiting!

  26. storybeader Says:

    how wonderful! And giving us enough time to buy and try! Thanks! {:-D

  27. Jenny Matlock Says:

    I just like the bottle…hee hee!

  28. Catherine - Our Village is a Little Different Says:

    It will certifiably look nice on the table! I could use some right now. It’s after 2AM and I’m wide awake.

  29. Splendid Little Stars Says:

    It sounds yummy!
