    The Wine Guy


    Since the first of the big winter holidays is exactly one week from today (everyone here at the paper is pretty excited, by the way; we all get a half day off!), I thought it would be more helpful to dispense with the narrative style of my column and simply list those wines that I think will add enjoyment to your meal.
