At this time of year in our household we quite often end up doing various chuck-it-all-in warming stews. Whether we use white fish or bacon, chorizo or chicken, I’ll generally bung in an assortment of leftover veg, some passata, and spices like paprika, cumin or cinnamon depending on the meat/fish, and often a little fresh chilli.
The result is hearty, gently spicy and rich, and I’d love some go-to wines to stock up on for just this kind of dish. Whether smoky and warming or rich and juicy, I’d love to hear your tried-and-tested bottles for similar types of dinners? Classics and off-the-beaten-track wildcards equally welcome!
