What I most love about drinking Alsatian wine in the winter is how well it pairs with seasonal root vegetables and hearty tubers: rutabaga and parsnip, roasted turnips and sweet carrots, caramelized onions and fennel.

Or is anything more comforting and simple to prepare than plump pork sausage served with boiled, buttered potatoes and a bit of spicy mustard?
