Fine Wines and Hot Dogs from Crif's in NYC Wed, 08/6/08 2:14 PM (permalink)
Two writers from the Washington Post went to a wine tasting where the wines were paired with various hot dogs from[url='http://www.roadfood.com/Reviews/Overview.aspx?RefID=5308']Crif's[/url]. Here is the [url='http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/story/2008/08/05/ST2008080503038.html']article[/url], and here are some associated dog-wine matching [url='http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/08/05/AR2008080500952.html?sid=ST2008080503038&pos=list']tips[/url].

      Couple of weeks ago we had a hotdog and wine party up here in Healdsburg - huge success, and not a soul used ketchup. I agree with the pairings in that article wholeheartedly.

          Ha...those guys don't know anything. The best possible pairing is a couple of microwaved Ball Parks and a bottle of Night Train!

            What should one pair with an Oscar Mayer wiener? Boone's Farm? Cisco?
            Or perhaps a nice 2008 MD 20/20.

              NebGuy... If you can find a nice vintage 3 week old MD 20/20, your doing good!
              Why not write an article of which beer goes better with which dog.. I'd find that far more interesting to read.

                I see no problem with this. The trick is to match the right wine with any food.

                For chili dogs, wings and other spicy foods most people reach for a sweeter white wine. I always reach for an over the top California Zinfandel. Try it, you'll like it.

                  But if they did, being in Sonoma, it would have been organic ketchup made from locally-grown tomatoes.

                  Nice part of the country you live in!

                    Hot Dogs go better with beer.

                        Spot On, Rogo! The "winners" were Zins and an off dry Gewurtz.
