One of the things I love most about the December holidays—as opposed to, say, Thanksgiving—is that there is no monolithic meal. There is no tyrannical turkey that will not cede its place at the center of the table, no firmly planted plates of sweet potatoes and cranberry sauce. December is more laissez-faire, or, at least, because of its many different celebrations, more varied. It follows, then, that the wide spectrum of festivities at which you might find yourself—or dishes you may be tasked with preparing—is perfectly suited to a mixed sampler of French and Italian wines. Whether you’re about to dig into brisket and latkes, a Feast of the Seven Fishes, egg rolls and fried rice, or even, yes, a roast turkey, these wines below will have you covered.
