What wine goes best with corned beef??

I'm a little embarrased to ask this question but, I have too-I'm having 10 people over for an early St Pat's day dinner on Sat and not everyone drinks beer.We'll be having the usual sides- cabbage, potatoes,carrots and soda bread and probably another green veggie.Thanks for your help!!!Love and energy, Vicki

Pinot Gris (W) Beaujolias (R) Pinot Noir (R) stick with these light bodied wines so they don't overpower the corned beef. Hope this helps.

A reisling or gewerstraminer that is slightly sweet will work very well with this salty meat.

a light, floral german white would work well imo, vickiq.
i prefer sweeter ones to go with salty or spicy foods.

why is everybody over there so nuts about Riesling?? It must be a marketing phenomen....

to corned beef I would serve a medium dry to dry red wine.... over here in Germany I would go for a Trollinger or Lemberger.. or maybe a Dornfelder

I don't think it's a marketing phemonenom. Reisling is not a very popular wine in the USA. It's just that the slight sweetness of a reisling compliments salty or spicy foods. Reisling also works well with ham.

Thanks for all the great input.I was just speaking with my 18 year old daughter who is at college but will be home on Saturday. I was discussing the menu with her and she said quite proudly- I'll make jello shots!!! While I know she has been introduced to them and I also know she was voted best jello shot maker in her dorm- I'm not too sure her father would be too thrilled with this and I am not too happy this is the only recipe she knows!!!! I think I'm going to have to "test" those winesI pick up at the liquor store tomorrow before she gets home!!! Thanks again- Love and energy, Vicki
