Wine and Beer Guide

Whether you are raising your glass for a toast, or pouring it into a stock pot, wine and beer are equally great for cooking and enjoying.

A Smooth and Juicy Red

An easy-drinking red with deep flavor and mellow tannins is just the companion for earthy mushrooms. Try a Spanish tempranillo from Rioja. These food-friendly wines are much like pinot noir, only with a bit more character and a touch of smokiness that complements mushrooms, especially when combined with richer sauces.
