    1. I love Strawberry/rhubarb pie and can't think of anything that wants wine less. I tried a dessert Moscato with a simple strwaberry pie and it just felt like sweet on sweet.

      1. probably nothing, but perhaps Brachetto d'Acqui.

            That's what I was thinking: Rosa Regale Brachetto d'Acqui.
            Perfect for strawberries. $14-$17.

            Just make sure the pie is tart-sweet, not sweet-sweet,
            or the wine will taste sour.

              If the pie's not too sweet, that would work for me.

              We had Cocchi Barolo Chinato with a rhubarb dessert a few weeks ago, that worked.
