    Silly question, and despite my email handle, I don’t have experience with wine at all…can you recommend one for this recipe? There are a 1000 bottles when i walk into a liquor store and I have no idea what one might be good for cooking with. I could google, but you’re right here… :)

    Hi Jamie. I usually select wine that I like to drink, but I also consider price when using for cooking and stay around the $15.00 mark. For this recipe I would select a Pinot Gris.
