With the holiday season upon us and everyone scrambling to get all the ingredients for your "perfect" Thanksgiving Dinner, I bet you forgot the Wine!

Most do and there is still no cause for panic. To me Wine is the quintessential ingredient to a successful cocktail or dinner party. It adds a touch of class and also provides a focal point for conversation. (after all who has not heard things like, I enjoy a dry wine, I like a sweet wine etc.)

Here are a few tips to make your job of  "Sommelier" easier.

Probably the most important is price. You do not need to break the bank when choosing your Wines. Most restaurants make up a bottle of Wine about 300 percent, so that 30 dollar bottle in a bistro is only about 10 in your local liquor store.

I also recommend having a wide selection (remember, price is not really an issue) Include a dry red, a sweet red, a dry white and a sweet white. Also a nice Rose' as this is excellent with turkey. I also never worry about match…
