The Best Wines For Game Season

By Forbes October 2020

"Pheasant—I don’t find much farm-raised pheasant worth the money, but a freshly caught bird, even if it doesn’t have much fat on it, makes for wonderful eating. The mild gaminess and the texture of the flesh make this ideal for a lighter red wine.
