Friendsgiving may look a little different this year, but then, the concept has always been lovingly offbeat. On or around Thanksgiving, you gather with friends for a big meal, delicious drinks, and a chance to give thanks for all the blessings, baes, and other wonderful boons in your lives. While Thanksgiving tends to have a dreadful sameness to it, with joyless relatives fighting for the best parts of a golden-brown-bird, Friendsgiving looks different from house to house, from apartment to apartment, from backyard to backyard. You get the idea. Rather than featuring a set menu of must-have dishes, Friendsgiving is a sort of potluck free-for-all, incorporating a wealth of ethnic foodways, dietary preferences, family traditions, and YouTube cooking video experiments — all rolled into one.
With such a wonderful mashup in play, you need a wine that’s versatile, ultra-social, and special. And that’s where Segura Viudas Cava becomes Friendsgiving’s bestie. With a history dating back all the way to the 12th century, Segura Viudas uses indigenous Spanish grapes from the Penedès region of Catalonia to make a fabulous range of Cavas in the traditional Champagne method. The best part is that there’s a wine in the Segura Viudas lineup for every dish on the table, from classic Brut Cava that’ll glide you through the appetizers to an aged Reserva Heredad that just might steal the show from your bestie’s bourbon-soaked toffee pecan pie. With such delicious sparklers on the table, there will be far less focus on subjects like politics (sigh), and more on eating and drinking — and believe us, that’s a good thing. Here’s our guide to building the ultimate Friendsgiving table, with plenty of Segura Viudas sparkle.
