During the week of Thanksgiving, you’ll want to uncork wine every night for your company. Here’s the great news: If you do your research, you can treat your guests like royalty without breaking the bank. Here’s a lively lineup of reds and whites, with several bottlings $20 and under.

Whitehaven, 2015 Marlborough, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, 13%, $20. A grassy sauvignon blanc with tropical fruit flavors, a hint of jalapeño and bright acid. A lingering note of sassy lime. Finishes crisp. Smart.

J, 2014 California Pinot Gris, 13.8%, $18. A tasty pinot gris with notes of pineapple, tangy tangerine and honeysuckle. Great minerality. A lovely food wine.

Harken, 2015 Chardonnay, 13.5%, $14. This is toasty chardonnay with notes of crème brulee, pear and melon. Rich and unapologetic for its hedonistic style. For those who love blousy chardonnays, this one is for you, but it’s best solo.

MacMurray Estate Vineyards, 2014 Russian River Valley, Sonoma County Pinot Noir, 14.3%, $30. An absolutely lovely pinot noir with pretty cherry fruit, herbs and lavender. It’s balanced with bright acid, and has a lingering raspberry finish. Makes a great food match.

Decoy, 2013 Sonoma County Merlot, 13.9%, $25. A briary merlot with black fruit, herbs and cracked black pepper. It’s a savvy pick because it has such generous fruit and a seamless texture. Impressive.
