A simple but tasty dish of mussels and sausage in a rich tomato broth. A nice meal with a salad and good bread for soaking up the sauce. I used cultivated mussels as the fresh at local stores didn't look that good. By all means use live fresh mussels if they are available.

With the tomato and sausage in the dish either a red or white wine works. I opted for a red. Viansa Augusto 2005 Sonoma Valley Barbera was the choice. This is an elegant wine. Fruity but not wimpy. It was made as a tribute to Augusto Sebastiani one of the early pioneers of Sonoma Valley wine making. Barbera was said to be his favorite grape.
