Thanksgiving

Pete Stoughton and Lynn Ware Peek have a special Thanksgiving edition of The Mountain Life. It’s time to talk Thanksgiving food and wine with local experts. Brook Kirchheimer of Hearth and Hill Restaurant will talk about new twists on old classics, his beloved traditions and how his restaurant helps feed a community in celebration of this annual feast. 

In this Thanksgiving episode of The Mountain Life, Kirsten Fox, executive sommelier at the Fox School of Wine joins the show to let us in on some great pairings for our favorite dishes. Will it be red? White? Bubbly? Big and bold or light and fruity?
