Ham is challenging cause it's so salty and strong-flavored. My
choices are fruity, quenching wines: A Beaujolais, a Zinfandel
or a lighter-styled Pinot Noir if you want a red; a Chenin Blanc
or Riesling if you're in the mood for a white. Or, if you like
the style, think of ham with pineapple and select an oaky New
World Chardonnay redolent of tropical fruit.
