Lamb Stewed with Parsnip, Bacon, Fennel, and Red Wine

Rich lamb meat and bacon are natural matches for spicy, fragrant wine, and the wine's bright fruit complements the dish's parsnips and fennel.Todd Coleman

To pair with the Fox Run Lemberger, chef Dano Hutnik, of Dano's Heuriger on Seneca, in New York's Finger Lakes region, gave us the recipe for this lamb stew; the rich meat is a natural match for the spicy, fragrant wine, and the red's bright fruit complements the dish's parsnips and fennel. This recipe first appeared in our November 2012 tablet edition along with Betsy Andrews' story 37 Great American Wines.
