Did you know that more wine is sold in November than in December? It's true! I doubt that people consider the Thanksgiving feast anymore wine-worthy than the Christmas feast, but rather that the holidays are upon us and we start drinking more wine at table as a rule. There are parties. We stock up. And we start stocking up for all of our festive events in November. Here are a few of my personal picks for 2011 in case you need some suggestions.

This dry white wine from New Zealand is delightfully fresh and made to be drunk young. It offers vibrant and penetrating flavors of gooseberry, sweet pea, lime, mineral and herbs. While it's very much a "fun" wine, it is also very skillfully crafted. There's no shame in serving it to anyone but the rankest snob -- and you don't want to drink with that fellow anyway. Serve with --shellfish, light-flesh fish, finger food

The annual Marlborough Hunt Races at Roedown Farm in Davidsonville celebrated its 35th anniversary last Sunday and in the process offered up a musical dichotomy of sorts. Near the starting line rail at one end of the oval racetrack, three local bands played between races and produced a musical mixture of guitars, bongos and pop-rock vocals for spectators and nearby tailgaters. And, where more of the racing could be seen, the audience heard a different soundtrack - the rhythmic galloping of horses and the occasional crescendo of resounding cheers.

This is a truly exceptional New Zealand pinot gris that ranks right up there with some of the best from France's Alsace region. It's a voluptuous dry white wine with a creamy texture and long finish. It offers a complex interplay of flavors of pears, peach, tropical fruit, spices and honey. This is truly a special-occasion white wine. Serve with baked salmon with a creamy sauce.

Three local bands will provide musical entertainment in 20-minute sets between races, which event organizers hope will appeal to a more diverse audience.

Under the blue skies and brilliant sunshine that broke earlier this week, the picture-perfect farm came to life - and not a moment too soon. Just days before the anticipated arrival of more than 150 horses and 5,000 spectators, the rain ceased, the grass dried up and last-minute preparations began at Roedown Farm in Harwood for the 31st Marlborough Hunt Races to be held Sunday. "We're just trying to do as much as we can before it starts raining again," said Jason Cole, 33, who prepares the course for the steeplechase.

As more than 100 thoroughbreds and their jockeys competed in the Marlborough Hunt Races in southern Anne Arundel County yesterday, David Kolb and his friends savored a 100-pound, slow-roasted pig on the sidelines. At the steeplechase races in Davidsonville, the group has carved out a niche for itself, with a whole tailgating section - "Loedown Lane" -named in its honor. "Sixteen years ago, everyone else had their silver candelabra and their Mercedes here," he said. "All we had was a ham and our pickup trucks.

At the Marlborough Hunt Races in Davidsonville Sunday afternoon, thoroughbred racehorse riders will carry on a country steeplechase tradition that dates back to Ireland in 1752, when two men decided on a whim that a four-mile race from one village church steeple to another would be good fun. Those two thrill-seekers got something started. More than 100 thoroughbreds and their riders are expected for the 32nd annual races, organizers said, along with about 5,000 spectators enjoying the Anne Arundel County event under spring skies.

MARLBOROUGH, England - Purchased for a pittance, treated like family and transformed into a steeplechase champion, Priceless Room was this year's Cinderella horse from Maryland. But yesterday, the bay gelding with a big heart and a beautiful stride discovered that there's nothing quite as slow, frustrating and ultimately exhausting as running on soggy English soil. Two jumps from the finish and trailing in the Marlborough Cup, the 10-year-old from Big Wood Stables in Monkton, Md., was pulled up by his jockey, J.W. Delozier III. A day that began with high hopes that Priceless Room might pull off a second straight victory in a four-race championship series to claim a $100,000 bonus, ended with relief that the horse was safe and sound.

Whipping winds and Easter festivities depressed the turnout but not the spirit of those who climbed the hill in Davidsonville yesterday for the Marlborough Hunt Races at Roedown. Officially, the spectators had come to see the likes of Never Fear and Jamaica Me Laugh thunder toward the finish line after racing around the grassy course set up for the competition, now in its 33rd year. Unofficially, they came for the sangrias and Bloody Marys, the deer chili and deviled eggs - and, most importantly, for fellowship with family and friends.
