I love to cook with wine, it gives such a wonderful flavor to the dish. You have to make sure that you let it reduce or it will be too strong. I agree with everyone else that you don't cook with wine that you wouldn't drink. The wine that you buy in the grocery stores that call themselves cooking wine are terrible. I would much rather use a stock rather than any of these. But the wine that you cook with doesn't have to be expensive either. I have used wine from the grocery store (in the alcohol section, not the vinegar isle) and the dish comes out very good. You can find an inexpensive riunite for example in white or red depending on your dish that work perfectly well. Of course quality ingrediants are always much better, but who can afford to put a 100. dollar bottle of wine in a chicken dish?
