The bigger the Thanksgiving table, the more options you can have. These six wine pairings are incredible values for the money (and most will cost less at the store than the market price listed here). Each is designed to pair beautifully with a classic Thanksgiving menu—roasted turkey, herby stuffing, silky gravy, and butter mashed potatoes. Their flavors are crisp enough to cut through the decadent foods, but they won't compete with all the herbs and spices. When you're shopping at the market, tell the wine seller what you like and what you'd like to spend. He or she will guide you to the right bottle. There are not right or wrong questions or wines: Serve whatever makes you and your guests happy.
Gruet Brut, $20, New Mexico
Sparkling wine isn't just celebratory; it's actually one of the most diverse and food-friendly wines to be had. Laurent Gruet hails from Champagne, France, and uses the region's wine-making methods with grapes grown in the United States. This sparkler is a great way to start the feast; pair it with any number of Thanksgiving appetizers for a perfect first course. If it goes over well, don't be afraid to bring the bottle straight to the dinner table. Notes of tart green apple and citrusy minerals will be a good partner to turkey, ham, and all sorts of sides.
