Here our some of our panelists’ top picks for 2017:

Deborah Parker Wong

Bubbles are a year round essential and if you’re planning to trade up for a holiday celebration, Collet, produced by Cogevi, the oldest cooperative in Champagne, has several delicious new releases that won’t break the bank. I love their Art Deco Iconic Brut.

If you really want to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style, here is the perfect Champagne from the House of Collet in France. Get dressed up in your most festive and elegant attire, and take this luscious bubbly with you on the town to share with friends.

This Carneros AVA Chardonnay has the richness and intensity needed to accompany the hearty assortment of foods on most holiday tables, or to get the party started. And despite it’s full, “winter-white” body, it’s a harmonious food wine too.

2015 Shafer Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch Carneros Napa Valley

Catherine Fallis

I love a zesty red even in the chill of winter. They just brighten up what ever dish is on the table. Tuscan Sangiovese is my go to. Here is one of my faves:

Can I have one more pick? If so, thrilling, seductive and elegant New Zealand Pinot Noir is it. For example:
