What kind of wine should I serve with Jambalaya?
Or should I serve something other than wine?

Exerpt from World of Wine page:
Pro's choice for Jambalaya pairing:
Amanda .. We found a perfect inexpensive wine for jambalaya quite by accident. Try Turning Leaf's Red Zinfandel, there's no bitter aftertaste, and it's not so strong as to overpower the meal!
Jason .. We've had good luck with Aussie Shiraz. Try Rosemount Diamond Label or Leasingham Clare Valley. Definitely go for something brash with a lot of fruit. The earthier ones just die with jambalaya.
Jack .. Just had a 1996 Rabbit Ridge Sangiovese with it the other day and the combo worked nicely.
Dan .. BIG, spicy Red Zin....or an equally big Shiraz.
alt.food.wine ... Wine with Jambalaya? Easy = ZINFANDEL, Big, unabashed, spicy just like the Jambalaya.
alt.food.wine ... Beside various Sangiovese, I like it w/ a good strong Riesling. For an unusal combo, try a good mild but fraqent Japanese sake serve chill !Source(s): http://www.stratsplace.com/winefood.html

According to http://www.fabulousfoods.com/features/wine/bowlwin... Pinot Noir (red) or Chardonnay (white) go well with New Orleans food, but Pinot Noir is especially and particularly mentioned as a great accompaniment to jambalaya.
You can check out the site for yourself if you want. :-)
Hope this helps!

i wouldn't serve wine w/ it, the spicyness of the Jambalaya would mess w/ the taste of the wine, unless u r makeing some really tame jambalaya, and then i would suggest a red wine.

jambalaya is a cajun dish and being cajun i have only been places where beer was served. just like with a crawfish or crab boil beer is always a safe bet. good luck
