Red wine in beef stew

kstrick | Mar 17, 2010 08:50 AM

I found this recipe for a beef stew that calls for 1 cup of red wine, and 1 cup of Guinness beer. I don't like any dry red wines and I've looked all over the internet trying to find a good wine to use. I have a bottle of Duplin red wine but it's a sweet wine and was wondering if this would be okay to use, or if I should find another wine. I've read that you shouldn't use a wine to cook with if you wouldn't drink it, does this still apply here? Thanks!
