Pairing challenge.. Venison ragu & pulled pork...Help a relative Newb!?

newtothegame | Feb 8, 2011 06:12 PM

I'm new to the world of wine pairing (vs. just enjoying) and I'm loving the challenges it brings.

I'm in charge of bringing wine to a weekend getaway that will include the following two meals and would love some suggestions about a great wine.

#1 Venison ragu over some sort of nondescript pasta without filing (spaghetti from a box probably!) This one I am kinf of leaning towards a Sangiovese somewhere hot (tuscany?) as the italians eat a lot of tomato based sauce and have been known to use game in it, and it seems a fit. Any suggestions you think would be better?

#2) Pulled pork.. I mut admit I don't know where to begin.. It's probably going to be sweet and BBQ'Ey (new word!) so umm.. perhaps a full bodied / hot climate blush? I could use some help on that one.

Thanks in advance!
