Will be haveing some friends over during Christmas week to dine on the bounty of grouse and phesant that we took during the early part of the hunting season and was wondering what wine would go best with our wild game feast? Any suggestions??

If you want to try something a bit unique might I suggest you look at Malbecs?

There are some spectacular ones out of S. America - I am looking at an Argentinian one right now - Rodolfo, but there are many good ones.

I think they are perhaps the best class of reds to serve with game - but that's just my opinion...

Merry Christmas.

Honestly I don't think you can beat a good beer with this kind of food - guess I am a real red neck. Ice cold pilsner ...

Not sure with the grouse & pheasant, but Rodney Strong Merlot is some mighty fine and smooth wine, only problem with it is the bottles seem too small, LOL. Scott

If you can get it, a nice local homemade wine is always good with wild game. I prefer a concord red.jmho Bill

I like a full bodied Red, Malbec, Merlot, Cab, Meritage, Cab Franc, Chianti, etc, etc.

I've never seen Pheasant or Grouse served with anything different from a medium to full bodied Red in Europe, for what that is worth.

With game meats like that I would tend to a dry red wine such as a Merlot or Pinot Noir. The South Island of New Zealand produces some excellent Pinot Noir - Malbough region or even better is the Central Otago region.
