OMG - this is a fabulous soup !!! I did not add the wine, as I just do not like cooking with wine for the most part, but made as directed except for that. What a wonderfully rich flavor with a great mix of veggies. I will definitely make this again - both DH and I had 2 bowls each and a salad. GREAT SOUP.
