I have done this recipe with veal (osso bucco) and chicken, but it will work with almost anything, including beef, lamb, and turkey. The flavors are so savory and it makes fantastic leftovers for sandwiches.
Cooking with the best quality ingredients results in the best quality dish. This is so important with your choice of wine. For white wines choose a chardonnay in recipes that are rich or savory and a dry sauvignon blanc for tart or acidic recipes.
Full bodied reds like cabernet are the choice for a stews or rich sauces. When I am making a dish that requires a little more finesse I might choose a young pinot noir.
