The Best Wines and Beers for Your Holiday Meal

You have the turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce, and gravy—your menu is complete, right? Not quite. Before you finish planning your holiday meal, be sure you're not neglecting the vino and brews. Our 10-Minute Wine Matchmaker will help you showcase that golden pièce de résistance (i.e. the bird), while balancing all the delicious flavors of the meal. But, before we begin with our matches, we must bring to light libations to avoid.

MISMATCH Avoid big Italian Barolos and California cabs that can steal the thunder of even the mightiest roasted bird. Also, keep light whites like sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio with appetizers—they’ll never get out of the gate against the main course.
