Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, not only for the indulgence of food but for the time we share with family and friends. 

It’s one of the few holidays when no one needs to stress about finding the perfect gift or experience the disappointment of a poorly chosen one. It’s the holiday each year when gratefulness, blessings and, of course, the food and wine are the focus. It’s a time to be thankful for all we have and celebrate.

That’s enough about my sentimental ideals and my expectations of tomorrow. (For the record, I am counting down the hours until then.) If you are reading this column, chances are your home is filling with family, the menu is intact, but you might still be considering wine choices. Be thankful, because Uncorked has an easy list of suggestions for however your turkey is cooked, any array of sides and guest preferences. Here is a good list of wines for Thanksgiving.
