Great grapes can ensure that oil won't spoil

Many wines struggle to cope with some Chinese foods because of the oils used in their preparation. In these situations, the best wines to serve are riesling and gewurtztraminer because the wines' natural acid cuts through the oil.

This week we meet a pair of exceptional value wines from the Alsace region of France: the 2010 riesling and gewurtztraminer made by A.Zirnhelt. Each can be found at supermarket chains like Metro for about 70 yuan ($11) a bottle, which is a bargain for wines of this quality.

Alsace is in the Northeast of France, near the western bank of the upper Rhine River next to Germany and Switzerland. The region's political, economic and cultural capital is Strasbourg, where dozens of international groups are located, making Alsace politically one of the most prestigious regions in the European Union.
