‘Tis the season to be merry and celebrate but if you’re fretting about which wine to serve at your gatherings or give as gifts to your wine-loving friends and family — have no fear — for my 12 wines for the holidays are here! I’ve put together a list of 12 selections that will fit almost any of your holiday needs and will get you through the season. *All wines are available at Perman Wine Selections (my favorite wine shop in Chicago because Craig Perman is the most awesome guy ever and few can rival his encyclopedic knowledge of wine and food). Seriously, you should buy your wines from Craig, if you don’t already.
