Recommended wine: Dornfelder, Riesling

German on the menu? Try pairing with Dornfelder and Riesling. Beer might seem like the natural pick for German food, but German riesling pairs wonderfully with seafood and schnitzel, while a German red like Dornfelder goes well with beef and game meat. The Heinz Eifel Shine Dornfelder Sweet Red with a 3.5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 12 dollars per bottle.
