Cabbage?

Anyone know a good wine to go with cabbage? (Just a single wine for all types - or possibly different ones for "red", "white" of "green" cabbages?)

It is true that one ususally pairs a wine with the entree but if Cabbage is the entree....how is it being prepared.

German style, pick a German wine. Italian with tomatoes, onions and........maybe a chianti. Heck maybe even go for the Jaggermeister. It's made with cabbage.:look:

We eat a great deal of cabbage here but never as the entree. Typically it is served stuffed, braised or stewed and not often do we enjoy wine anylonger. Just not in the budget these days.

Something tells me thi si not that legit but in case it ismaybe a legit answer would help.

I am not to sure I want to try a wine that pairs well with Cabbage. If anything I think I would choose a sweet wine like a Gewürtztraminer or a Riesling. Finding a wine that pairs with cabbage is like trying to find a word that rhymes with orange.

I'd go with a beer for cabbage, a light lager for instance. Ice cold please :) Other than that, a fruity sweet white wine, if you must.

P,S, lol B.Adams. I can't think of anything that rhymes with orange....

:eek: I think any wine will do. If I would be the one to sample your cabbage and wine pairing, I wouldn't mind whatever wine you use.

This is a real fine dining question. I figure if your having cabbage as a main entree, then Boone's farm apple wine would fit real well. The whole meal could be on the dollar menu at your local Polish fast food restaurant.

I was thinking more along the lines of Mad Dog 20/20, but BF Strawberry Hill sounds good too.

Cabbage in it's raw form either dressed or not can be difficult to match with wine, however, their are many dishes, my particular favorite is chourcroute garni from Alsace.This is a wonderful braised sauerkraut dish bolstered with smoked pork, sausages, juniper and sometimes caraway. I always moisten my choucroute with a dry Alsace Riesling and drink the same with it. Trimbach & Willm is a good place to start.

In it's raw form I always drink a beer, usually a Belgium triple.:beer:
