I eat a lot of tofu and was wondering what wine you pair with it...if any of you eat tofu. White wine would seem the first choice but I guess it would depend on the sauce since tofu absorbs the flavors. Also do any of you eat vegetarian regularly? I'm not a vegetarian I but I eat vegetarian several times a week.

Well it just so happens that I made a vegetarian lasagne last night, which uses a tofu ricotta. We thought it paired well with a 1999 Silvio Nardi Brunello.

But a stuffed Veal Chop would have paired better. Big Grin

Testify.

But seriously, this is a problem I have as well with guests (primarily female) who are health concious and I would like to accomodate. I'm guessing Chianti and pinot would be safe bets.
this is really most dependant on how & what you are cooking the Tofu (if at all) with... these flavors are going to determine your wine, moreso then the Tofu, which by itself is as close to flavorless as you can get

Mmmm, sounds good. I make a killer eggplant lasagna (non-vegetarian) that uses sliced eggplant instead of noodles. Yummy! I've never tried a Brunello before. I'll have to keep a look out for it.

I haven't really liked any of the Pinot's I've tried but I like Chianti. I never thought of that. Thanks for the suggestion. Sounds like some Tofu Cacciatore and Chianti are on the menu soon. Cool

Pinot is a really diverse grape, what regions have you tried them from? I've been recently very impressed by pinot from New Zealand.
Now that I think of it they've been mostly CA and OR. I'll have to try some NZ Pinot soon. Any recommendations?
Reccomendations? Not in the plural. I've only just started trying them. I tried Thornbury PN a few weeks back and it was really good.
