I created this when I had a leftover open bottle of Burgundy and my friend brought me 10 pounds of fresh organic asparagus. You can probably use any wine you like. Also, the cooking time will vary depending on how hot your grill is and your desired doneness.

Tasty. I dumped the marinade asparagus and all into heavy duty foil shaped like a makeshift square pan...and placed on the grill. I like my asparagus REALLY done nearly burnt so I cooked for about 20 minutes. Read More

I was very disappointed...marinating the asparagus didn't add any additional flavor that I could tell. The tips of the asparagus burned before the stalks were done even those these were really skinny stalks. Perhaps grilling them on foil, so you could add the marinade while they cooked would be better. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I gave this four stars because I threw some chicken breasts in with the asparagus and the marinade produced the most tender chicken breast that my husband has EVER grilled which says alot because he always overcooks chicken (especially when he's grilling). I could have taken or left it on the asparagus & I love asparagus (it was just kinda too sweet) but worked well with the chicken thanks Denyse my 11 year old ate 2 chicken breasts...RARE! Read More

We love asparagus and this was good. It's a little too cold and snowy outside to grill so we just used our grill pan. They came out great. I've never even thought of grilling asparagus Denyse so thanks for "enlightening" me! Michelle the I.M. is the Instant Messenger nothing to do with e-mail. The kids are on it all the time. Know what we're talking about? Read More

YUMMY!!! Now this was delicious and addicting! I used some cheap bottle of savongon blanc and it sitll tasted great. Instead of bbqing it I used an indoor grill for abotu 10 minutes or so mmm. I think i'm going to buy lots more thin asparagus and make this many more times. My new favorite asparagus recipe!! Thanks so much for sharing. Read More

I thought this was great! I just started trying asparagus and this is definately a "keeper"! I used a good merlot and we were eating them right off the grill - no need for plates! Read More

Very good but it's lots more work for no real reason. Just use some olive oil and some fresh garlic let sit for a few minutes then use a veggie grill basket and toss on the grill. cook to desired doneness. Much easier and basically the same delicious results. the wine and brown mustard added very little additional flavor to the process in my opinion. It was good just not so much better than just olive oil and fresh garlic to be worth the trouble of extra ingredients and the 2 hour marinade. Read More
