I know this comes up often but here's my parameters:
* ~ 20 people gathering, private home
* professional chef doing the cooking
* he'll make appetizers to compliment bubbly for me
* veggie, chicken, and beef entrees to be named later
* need a bubbly, red, and a white, all good stuff, but no more than about $350
I figure a chard for the white, no real wine nuts there and I notice most everyone that really does not drink wine thinks they like chards.
