Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Joyous Kwanzaa to all! It’s that time of year—when our favorite holidays become politicized to the point of ridicule, when the need to advance a specific agenda overtakes our desire to simply come together and celebrate our blessings, as we did when we were little. Because let’s face it—regardless of faith, all we really want to do is sit down around a table, eat ourselves into a stupor, and knock back one or two more glasses than the doctor recommends, right? In these polarizing times of finger-pointing and name-calling, here is a cause we can all agree on: six delicious, versatile French and Italian wines that don’t care which holiday you choose to celebrate. In the spirit of unity, we’ve picked out a white, a rosé, and four reds you can enjoy no matter your faith, as long as you own a corkscrew and a couple of drinking vessels. Raising a glass to fine wine—now that is a religion we can get behind.
