If eating junk/fast foods you just drink whatever wine is available.

My new favorite quote:

"Sometimes I feel like having a glass of wine with dinner. Then I remember I have plans for Christmas."
~Robert Downey Jr.

If you get it, you realize how darkly funny it is.

French fries and champagne sound pretty dank

Yeah. Why muck up a great wine with fries?

We have often had pizza with red wine, and chocolate pairs well with red wine. There are a few restaurants in NYC that specialize in the chocolate and wine thing (and cheeses). Don't think I'd do potato chips with wine though.

I like something lighter with pizza and prefer a Barbera, Valpocella, or Chianti.

We love dark chocolate and find it pairs wonderfully with a particular cheap wine, Gallo Hearty Burgundy, that has plenty of body and a touch of sweetness.

Agreed, Mark. A lighter red is better with pizza and pasta than something heavy. Love Valpolicella. A lot of wineries in the North Fork of Long Island have nice lighter reds. One thing I'll miss about living there. Sigh.

I actually like a heavier wine with dark chocolate, and of course things like steak. Love a good Malbec.

Chestnuts and wine go good together.

That would be no. Not only do I not drink, but I try not to eat junk food either.

I do Dave one combination they seem to have missed.
Taken separately, a glass of 55 degree Merlot from Napa Valley, and a flute of chilled brut champagne!
Works for me!!

No. I don't drink much wine. Beer is my alcoholic beverage of choice. When I drink wine, it's usually because I'm feeling "fancy" and that doesn't go with junk food. Haha

No, right now the reason is that I cannot drink.
