I usually use a light white wine.Or if its the other recipe i use the red wine.ITS up to you to use either your favorite wine,or any that's on sale.That way you can enjoy a good glass chilled wine ,with your dinner.So on that note,just buy the wine you like. My own use for this recipe.Was Sutterhomes moscato white. Or Riunite D'oro moscote,either red or white.Very smooth and fruity and crisp.

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I appreciate it. It all sounds good....I will use whichever wine sounds good to me at the time, or that I have handy. I especially like the idea of having a nice glass of good, chilled wine with the meal. Hey, I'm not Portuguese for nothing! I always enjoy a glass of wine or two. :o) Thanks again!
