Looking for Minestrone recipe that contains red wine.

I made this soup many years ago from a recipe found in a magazine but lost it! It was so good I would like to find it again.

I'd start at foodily.com to search those two terms. That site captures recipes from epicurious.com, other aggregators, newspapers and many of the large food-media company sites. Or, actually, I'd just follow any good minestrone recipe, using the wine to deglaze the aromatics, before adding the stock and hard vegetables. (That's what I do with my "Lentil and Sausage Soup for a Cold Winter's Night" posted here. A hefty pinch of dried marjoram would make any minestrone better, too, BTW.) ;o)

If you insist on using red wine (a dubious proposition to begin with when making minestrone) I would follow AJ's advice and cook it down in the aromatics.
