GEORGES DUBOEUF BEAUJOLAIS-VILLAGES
The every-man of wine, this traditional red is both fruity and floral, a comforting bottle to pair with just about any meal.
Je T'aime Brut Rosé
Both fancy and delicious, this sparkling wine is the perfect post-dinner beverage for the holiday's later hours.
Santa Margherita Chianti Classico Riserva DOCG
If you can think about Chianti without imagining Anthony Hopkins taste-based monologue in The Silence of the Lambs, you're sure to enjoy this rich red. Actually, even if you do flash upon the horror film, you'll probably still like the Chianti in question ...
Red Diamond Merlot
A true diamond in the rough, this berry-flavored Merlot tastes far more delicious than its price-point would have you believe.
BIRD in HAND Pinot Rosé
This sparkling Rosé tastes as good as it looks—which is quite the achievement considering it's the most beautiful pale rose hue. Although Rosé is hardly typical Thanksgiving fare, it's 2017 and if any wine could change the norm, it would be this one.
