Find the best bottles to pair with pork dishes, from tangy ribs to elegant roasts
The chiles fall apart as the dish cooks, giving the meat a mellow, earthy spiciness.
Recipe: Shot-and-a-Beer Pork Stew
Pair with: Grenache. With generous, juicy fruit and loads of spice, it's an extremely food-friendly wine. That sweet fruit is especially good with Southwest-flavored pork. And in the case of this bottle pick, a combination of pepper and cocoa in the wine works really well with the dried chiles in the stew. Recommended bottle: Horse & Plow 2008 Grenache (Alexander Valley).
