    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.
