With the holiday season coming up, wine is the perfect addition to any dinner table and the perfect gift for party hosts and friends.

With over 8,500 choices at stores like Total Wine, Pavle Milic, sommelier at FnB restaurant, showed 3TV's April Warnecke what to look for when choosing wine.

For example, the perfect bottle of wine for Thanksgiving is Beaujolais, according to Milic.

"It is a wine that is very versatile because it goes very well with things like cranberry sauce and turkey being a somewhat neutral protein, this wine is a type of wine that is not going to obliterate the turkey and it's just delicious," he said.

If shoppers are looking for a more local wine, there are currently 95 federally licenses wineries in Arizona. Total Wine carries many of these different types of wines.

Arizona wine quality is improving, yet prices are going down, according to Milic.
