Minnesota wild rice stuffing

A Midwest classic, wild rice stuffing is much like regular stuffing except with the added depth of that rich wild rice flavor. The addition of rice to the stuffing also changes the texture of the dish, allowing one to use a richer wine with a denser, velvety texture playing counterpoint to the chewy rice. Pinot Noir from California works very well here, as do wines from Rioja, which bring rich fruit, that velvety texture and a fine, subtle complexity to the table.
