wine spectator paired a syrah with beef burgundy, but many rich reds would be great for that. make sure its full-bodied, as you want something that can hold its own with the rich beef stew, which usually already has wine in it. as for actual wine picks, i'm sure there are TONS of food52ers who would LOVE to help you out. i hope this helped!

hahahaha, then I think your wine "prayers" have been answered! i like surprising my guests with varietals they are familiar with (like a Riesling or a Chardonnay) but from a place in the world they wouldn't expect, like South Africa or New Zealand. mix it up!

I'd go with a red zin. Franciscan is my favorite, if you can find it; I haven't been able to the last few times I've tried. Big, hearty red blends are another way to go; I love the Orin Swift 'Prisoner."

Probably an Old World style Oregon Pinot Noir 2008 vintage. Look for producers in the Dundee Hills AVA.
