With so many dishes on the Thanksgiving menu, selecting a wine can be overwhelming. David Wagner, proprietor of SipStirs, will guide you with your holiday wine selection. He will be joined by Mary Taylor, wine importer, who will share her wealth of knowledge and top picks.

Reed Collyer, owner of Collyer Catering, will share her culinary wisdom and help you reimagine the holiday classics.

Even though the holidays may look a little different this year, it is important to make friends and family feel special, no matter if you are 6 feet apart or 60,000 miles apart. You will leave this event with a list of wines, ideas for appetizers, and ready to toast to good things!
