When the holidays roll around, I invariably become the default Dear Abby for friends and family in search of good wines for festivities. Everyone expects the obligatory bottle of bubbly or “safe” wines—Pinot Noir and Chardonnay—at holiday gatherings, but this year, I would like to suggest adding a little local flare to the occasion.



When it comes to finding food-friendly wines for both white and red lovers, Texans should look to a couple of different grapes. Blanc du Bois is an American hybrid grape that offers with citrusy lemon zest, ripe pear, and yellow flowers on the nose, and a broad palate with bright acidity and a dry finish. Try the Flat Creek Estate 2014 Blanc Du Bois (~$15). Scissors-32x32.png
