What kinda of Wine do I bring to Chinese New Year!?

I'm cruising up to Sonoma tomorrow morning and I want to go grab a bottle of wine or many while I'm there. What should I buy that'd be appropriate for Chinese New Year dinner. I'm not chinese, but I don't use Chopstick trainers either. I'm skilled. I've already searched for wineries here on Chow, but if you have any recommendations... let me know. I think this is worth a drive.

    Maybe a riesling from Chateau St. Jean?

        I'd skip wine with Chinese food and go for a Belgian style saison, like Saison Dupont, Ommegang Hennepin or Lil Opal from Firestone Walker. Beer is just a better match for the diverse flavors.
