An alcoholic beverage made from the fermented juice of freshly pressed black grapes. Red wine is the ideal accompaniment to roasted and seared meats and simmered casseroles. It is also a versatile cooking ingredient.
Any good-quality red wine can be used for cooking.
Red wine can be used to marinate red meat and game dishes, and is essential in many stews, braised dishes and casseroles. It works well with many herbs and spices, from thyme and oregano to chillies and paprika. It is less suited to cream- and yoghurt-based sauces.
