The delightful Sylvia from Banville and Jones has a few wine suggestions that I for one will be taking.  I'm excited to try my tamworth pork steak with a sour cherry sauce and her recommendation!

If the cherries make their appearance in a sauce for the Tamworth pork steak:  try a new style Beaujolais, with lots of fruit and smooth tannins, such as the Jean-Marc Burgaud "Les Vignes Thulon" at $19.99.  And if you prefer white, because the summer is still beautiful, try one of Italy's most celebrated white wine producers with the Terlan Gewurtztraminer at $23.99 ("Gewurtz" rhymes with "flirts").  The Terlan Gewurtz has beautiful aromatics, and enough weight to stand up to the meat and the cherries!

- If you are rolling together the assortment of vegetables in a single batch of something delicious, go with a fresh Sauvignon Blanc such as the Luis Felipe Edwards "Pupilla" Sauvignon Blanc from Chile ($11.99). If the occasion calls for something a bit more special, try the Gran Reserva Sauvignon Blanc, also from Luis Felipe Edwards ($17.99).

- Any dessert from the sour cherries, fresh or cooked:  try them with the innocent bystander Moscato--an Australian twist on an Italian classic--a bit sweet, a bit fizzy, and a lot of delicious flavour! $11.99 for a half (375ml) bottle.
