What to Pour This Thanksgiving and at Holiday Parties Beyond

For white, try Aubron Muscadet, which Abood says is "good as light white aperitif" that can be paired with oysters, shellfish and other seafood. Serving turkey with chestnuts? Try Tripoz Macon, which pairs well with most white meat dishes.

For red, Terres Georges Et Cetera is "medium-bodied, with dark fruit, long length," and "lush but balanced," making it the perfect foil for prime rib roast, roast duck, goose, pheasant, roast lamb or ham.

New Year's bash

"Champagne Bourgeois-Diaz Brut pairs nicely with foie gras, gravlax, oysters on the half shell, caviar, puff pastry appetizers, and more," said Abood. "It's New Years -- drink it all night!"

Lastly, remember that choosing wine is all part of the holiday fun.

"Wine shouldn't be an intimidating thing," said Moreno. "It's meant to be shared with friends and family. Try new wines. Explore! And most importantly, drink what you enjoy."
