Thanksgiving is likely the most gut-busting meal of the year. For hosts, it’s certainly one of the most stressful to prepare. Thanksgiving for some equates to weeks of planning and days of cooking a multi-dish, family-style throwdown accompanied by an oversized turkey with a pie course. Choosing wines for a meal that incorporates a slew of sweet, savory and buttery rich flavors only adds to the stress.  

Melissa Davis, beverage director and assistant general manager at Staplehouse, says choosing wines for a large meal such as Thanksgiving doesn’t ...

We spoke with a handful of Atlanta bartenders and avid martini sippers to get their thoughts ...
