Many regions are still in the grip of winters icy fingers, so the obvious comfort is often a full-boded red in front of a roaring fire. Red wine lovers turn their eyes to shiraz, durif, cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo, Barolo and Bordeaux. And of course, these wines do go very well with the style of foods we tend to eat during winter - heavy comfort stews and roasts.
