This is my method of cooking with wine. Open a bottle of Porto....pour in glass.......start cooking....drink porto...cook .....continue to fill glass with Porto....continue cooking....fill glass again......continue to drink Porto....turn stove off......take nap.

Go look at your bottle of pure vanilla extract and see if the alcohol content isn't 35% or greater.

Vanilla has both hot/fat and cold/alcohol soluable components.

Wines sold at TJ's 2 buck chuck sells as 3 dollar charlie in Oregon and it is a good wine. I also like the Chili and Argentinean ones he sells. I served them when a cousin visited from Norway and he thought they were really good, and he is an expert.

I keep boxed wine in an open cupboard right beside my stove. All I have to do is reach up and get some. VERY convenient. One box has Chardonnay, one Burgundy, and/or Cabernet (right now I have both for some reason). When a dish calls for wine I have it right there and I feel the fact that it keeps for 6-9 months on my shelf is good enough for me to justify using it. I just used the last of my Chardonnay this evening (a friend borrowed for a fish stew) and I decided to taste it - tasted just fine.

No air gets in the bag therefore the taste does not change. I wish they had more of a variety - I'd be inclinded to keep a Sauvignon Blanc on hand also - I think it would pair nicely with the mussels.

We keep some nice bottles of wine around the house and there's no way I'm going to pour 1 1/2 cups of a $50.00 bottle of wine into what I'm cooking

BUT, back to the original question - I think I would use a slightly higher priced Souvignon Blanc - advertise that the mussels are made with such and such of wine - and charge a slightly higher price for the mussels
