1. NV Bele Casel Prosecco Extra Dry (Veneto, Italy)
Fresh, fruity, and delicious small grower Prosecco.

You’ve not had Vernaccia until you’ve had Vernaccia from Sergio and Elisabetta Fagiuoli. Trust me!

Beautiful, balance, laser-focused Chardonnay from the southernmost village of the Macon. Beautiful stuff!

40 year old vine Pinot Noir from the village of Savigny les Beaune. This is my pick for the top value-priced Thanksgiving red of all time.

From one of the oldest Barolo producers, this rich and fleshy Barbera is perfect for the holiday feast.

Who says you can’t drink Brunello with Thanksgiving dinner. Not me! And this 94 pointer will have you speaking in tongues!!
