    You've received great advice here with some good choices. The one exception is to skip the Asti. If you go the champagne route, either go with a real champagne (only wines made in the champing region of France can be called this. If they are made other places they are sparkling wines or 'method champagnoise') or a decent, reasonable sparkling wine like Chateau St. Michelle from WA state.

    Have fun and Cheers!

    What are you having? Fish or chicken--white. Red meat--red. What kind of white or red varies depending on what your eating. You should be able to ask the person at the wine store for a suggestion based on what you are serving.

    I prefer red wine with any type of meal. A good Merlot generally does the trick for me.

    Puerto Rican type: * Appetizers like Fried eco-friendly Plantain cups crammed with Shrimp in Creole Sauce. * an impressive pork Roast (or total pig) with a lot of garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and cumin rubbed in. * Yellow rice with pigeon peas. * Pasteles (plantain tamales). * Yams or ripe fried plantains. * Fried Yucca or in a Vinegar and Onion alleviation. * Salad * Coconut custard or rice with coconut milk, raisins and cinnamon. * Coquito (coconut cream, a hundred and fifty-data rum, cinnamon, brown sugar) (like eggnog) * Wine, Beer, mixed beverages

    cabernet sauvignon if you like reds

    chardonney, if you like whites

    they are mild wines and everybody accepts them

    if you want to get a little wild, i would recommend a Malbec from Chile or Argentina
