    Wine with Indian Food?

    Anyone know what pairs well with Indian? Its not going to be overly spicy, but I'm not sure what will actually be served. So fair I've read Riesling and Gewürztraminer might be good choices. I've also gathered that white is generally prefered to red and something with a lower alcohol content as to not over-emphasis the spice of the food. I know some of you are in to wine ( @Sticky ) so I figured it ask here.

    With Indian food goes water, lots of water.
    There is almost no Indian food that is not spicy.
    And mildly spicy is already enough to, for me at least, want to put my head in a bucket full of water.
    If you really insist on drinking wine, a sweet wine, not too strong, will do.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    Riesling. The Gewurztraminer will have more bite with spicy food.

    Riesling definitely but spicy just kills wine.

    I would be tempted to try a Moscoto; a little sweeter, with more flavor, to counter the spice.

    I did end up going with Riesling. It wasn't bad but only because the heat was turned way down on the food. If it was much hotter, the wine would have simply made it worse. Thanks for the suggestions, guys.

    Have a korma or tikka masala if you dont like it too spicy, as for wine!!!! Singha beer is what you want.

    It's just too hard to pair Indian with wine. It's like trying to do Sushi with wine and still using the wasabi and hoping for a good result. At that point the only wine that works is one with bubbles.
