The Wine Study

C

ooking with wine is a unique and compelling way to add flavor and depth to your meals. For many, choosing which wine to cook with means only going as far as the leftover bottle from their last meal, or perhaps combining a blend of open bottles from the refrigerator.

Cooking with wine does not change all of its characteristics, and a bottle of wine that is mediocre to begin with usually yields a mediocre meal at best. This doesn’t mean that you must go out and purchase an outrageously expensive bottle, but instead, that you should put some thought into the type and quality of wine that you are using and how you would like it to flavor your meal.

A good rule of thumb is that a wine good enough to cook with should be good enough to drink.

Fortified wines such as Marsala, Madeira, and Sherry are common in cooking. They have an intense, sweet flavor and high alcohol content and a little goes a long way. Veal Marsala is a classic dish made with fortified wine.

Wine can even be incorporated into dessert preparations, such as port with poached pears and strawberries soaked in red wine. Check out the recipes to the right for more delicious inspiration for cooking with your favorite wines!

Red Wine

Red wine is made from ripened grapes that are picked when the level of sugar and acid has reached the correct balance. Once picked, the grapes are crushed and the juice is placed in a vat along with the skins, the pulp, and sometimes the stems. Yeast is also added to initiate fermentation. This mixture is called the “must” and typically ferments in the vat for 4 to 14 days.

When the fermentation process has finished, which means that all of the sugar in the grapes has been converted to alcohol, the juice is separated from the solids and placed in wooden barrels or metal casks so that it can age. It takes anywhere from 9 months to 2 1/2 years before the wine is ready to be put into bottles and then sometimes numerous years after that before the wine is ready to be consumed

White Wine

Some people consider white wine to be inferior to red wine in quality, character, and taste. While white wines differ greatly from red wines, to say that one is better than the other would be naive. Everyone has their preferences, so it’s important for budding chefs to learn as much about each as possible.
