    This wine expert is a resource. He's a former sports writer/editor in Pittsburgh, Washington, San Diego and Newsday:

    Are you sure it's port you're drinking and not something you're smoking?

    My neighbor the wine and liquor salesman just brought by a bottle of Beaujolas Nouveau. He wanted us to drink it with dinner, but I regretfully told him that going to work having had a couple glasses is frowned upon. Still, a great Thanksgiving present!

    We're partial to Woodbridge Sauvignon blanc, although it might be a little light for the bird.

    Up here, it's considered a perfectly acceptable bottle of wine, in the $15 range - not fancy, but not cheap.

    You guys can get it in Publix for $3.99 ($7.99 for the double size).

    For $10-15, you should be able to hit the motherlode.

    Some wine goes bad because of the corks that degrade. There have been some decent European Vinyards that have gone to synthetic corks and screw tops. Portugal, which produces most of the cork, has already started to feel it. The shift is happening.
