Check out these great wine pairing ideas:

For Turkey: 90 point Manos Andinas 2015 Reserve Pinot Noir is a natural pairing for classic turkey with all the trimmings. Alternately, Zonte’s Footstep 2016 Love Symbol Grenache is a great choice for the Thanksgiving kitchen innovator. Forward-thinking home cooks will love pairing pumpkin-sage ravioli with this “decadently delicious” Aussie Grenache packed with spicy berry flavors.

For Cheese: Why not offer the Gold Medal-winning La Playa 2017 Estate Series Sauvignon Blanc as your festive aperitif? At 8 bucks a bottle, this is one of the best values on the market to pair with a goat cheese en croute for your New Year’s Soiree.

For Beef: Christmas prime rib is just begging for Villadoria’s 2013 Bricco Magno Nebbiolo. At just $14.99 you’ll be hard-pressed to find a more exceptional value in Nebbiolo.

Seeking to celebrate with bubbles? Pop a luxurious 92-point French Champagne, the Louis Revoir NV Cuvee Prestige Brut. Impress your guests with this super-sophisticated sparkler; you’ll be the only one that knows it cost less than twenty dollars.
