Wines for the Holidays, The International Parade for Smart "Tablescapes" and satisfied guests is a creative way to provide wines that will succinctly accommodate many food pairings and many palates for a reasonable expense.
Three notes of interest: As I continue to discover the versatility, vibrancy, celebratory colors, and the broad pair-ability of Rosé wines, I can't vouchsafe a feast without them (purchase the freshest Rosé wines available).
As my Wine Newbie-self has discovered, others just might have wise suggestions, and for that Claire Augustine has recommended a Barbera for the red wine of broad pair-ability.
Thirdly: If you want to impress with something exceptional, by all means, splurge away!
Muga Rioja 2015 Rosé (Spain)
Codorniu Classic Cava (Spain)
Scaia Del Garnatxa 2013 Priorat Red Wine
Sorry, I could not locate a Spanish equivalent of Port; so a typical port will do ($20 and above)
All for under $50.00, without the Port, and will pair with almost anything the 'chef' prepares, but keep in mind that these wines are suggestions, and there are many other equally apropos combinations for the holiday.
All for under $100. Keep in mind that good Champagne is never cheap!
Trever Jones Jonesy Rare Aged Port
Greg Norman 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot Red Wine
Frisk 2011 Riesling
All form the land down under for $80.
