ok, we don't drink wine. So, when a recipe says 1 cup of dry red for the stew or a cup of white for that shell fish or mushroom soup etc...can I substitute? Is the final product relegated to mediocre if I don't use wine? I don't mind putting the wine in but I don't know what wine to buy and I am usually an impromtu cook so I like to have what I need in my pantry. Is there a wine that I can keep in my pantry to use for these recipes? Sounds dumb but I feel like I'm missin something here. The conventional wisdom is to use wine that you'll be willing to drink...what do non drinkers do? Throw me some ideas here! Thanks!
