F&W gathers ideas for every part of the meal from some of the most creative entertaining experts we know.

Here are five Thanksgiving-perfect wines to buy by the case, for $15 a bottle or less.

NV Gruet Brut ($15). The idea of New Mexican sparkling wine once seemed like a joke. Gruet changed that with sparkling wines like this affordable, green-apple-scented brut.

2012 Benziger North Coast Sauvignon Blanc ($15). Sauvignon Blanc and salad are a classic pairing. Sauvignon Blanc and turkey, not so much. But Benziger's bottling is richer than most, so the match works well.

2012 Indaba Chenin Blanc ($12). Full-bodied Chenin Blanc, like this tropical-scented one, deserves more recognition for its versatility with food.

2012 Marcel Lapierre Raisins Gaulois ($13). All sommeliers have Beaujolais on their Thanksgiving tables. This delicate one is made by third-generation winemaker Mathieu Lapierre.

2010 La Maialina Chianti ($11). Blending Sangiovese with other varieties is a trend in Chianti right now, but this pure, cherry-rich, all-Sangiovese wine goes even better with turkey.
