 h1. Dear readers,
 Last week, James and I sat down on a bench near the Ferry Building in San Francisco to eat a picnic lunch. We unwrapped our incredible finds from the nearby market — bread, cheese, salami, apples. After several minutes of pure pleasure though, we felt rain on our faces. We huddled under the umbrella for a little more munching, and then we packed up and moved along. In winter, when it comes to dining al fresco, it's dicey. 

 Usually food in wintertime is best enjoyed inside, maybe in front of the fire. And often, we look to those dishes we've come to call comfort food: Think baked macaroni and cheese, pizza, meats braised for hours in a low oven, or plump salty noodles. This week, Kerry Newberry breaks down some of the myths about what wine to drink (or not to drink) with such meals. Whether you're celebrating a big occasion or merely enjoying the moment, the winemakers she consulted agree that a glass of bubbly may be just the accompaniment you're looking for.
