Hi berzerkeley!

For hot pot the sparkling Vouvray would be a great choice. The bubbles with the broth are a pleasing textural contrast.

If you're going for a meat hot pot, the reds mentioned can be a nice option; or, if you're going for fish, then Chablis would be a great way to suit the delicate flavors of the dish. Avoid oaked whites, or oaked reds.

If you're using richer seafood like mussels or shrimp, fino sherry is a beautiful way to go. Fino has a higher alcohol level though so, if the hot pot is at all spicy, skip the suggestion.

Happy Holidays!
