    We've lined up our useless bantam for our locked down Christmas dinner. She's old and small and stringy and I'm not sure that any wine is going to help.

    There are no rules. Drink what you enjoy.

    No, durrh, the OP meant for yourself!

    On my part, I don't really give it much thought, just stick some wine in the trolley in my last Christmas shop, whatever, just on an add Hock basis.

    No need.
    Ignoring at first signs of annoyance is always better than losing your tempranillo publicly.

    Shouldn't you be busy writing Christmas cracker jokes or something @sbkrobson ? You're inviting a red card for pun abuse here. :)

    Oi! It's all on topic. Why on earth Chianti post a few relevant ideas?

    Why are we talking about Christmas in September? Isn't there a law that says it's illegal to mention Christmas until after the harvest festival and bonfire night have past?

    Greek might be having Christmas with us again and I would like to be prepared and have time to source possibilities.

    • Chardonnay. No matter which region you look to, you can’t go wrong in pairing Chardonnay with your turkey. ...
    • Pinot Noir. For red wine lovers, Pinot Noir with turkey is a no brainer. ...
    • Viognier. While Viognier might not be as popular of a variety as Chardonnay, it’s certainly one of turkey’s greatest matches.
    • Gamay. ...
    • Dry Riesling. ...
    • Zinfandel. ...
    • Champagne. ...
