This hearty comforting chicken and red wine alphabet soup is perfect for cold fall days! The touch of red wine brings a pronounced taste to the soup and believe me that with 2 cups of wine, it tastes! It is therefore important to choose a wine that you LOVE. Obviously, don’t take a $50 wine, but still, not a no-name wine from the grocery store. I suggest something like the $13 Liberado Cabernet-Sauvignon Tempranillo, available at the SAQ.
