These are so good! Though I suppose it would depend on what wine you use. I suggest you just use a wine you like. I used my homemade cherry pomegranate wine.

2 cups sugar
6 cups red wine
3 cinnamon stick
whole cloves (I used about a tablespoon)

This is your syrup. Put it all in a pan and heat it to boiling then just let it simmer for 15 minutes or so.

Peel and core your pears and as you do it measure them out in your jars (I always do it this way, saves me from having any leftover, though you usually need a bit more than you measure out in the jars the first time because when you pack them you do a better job of it) then dump each jar full in a pan of water with some lemon juice in it (a tablespoon or so) to keep the color while you are peeling more. When you are done drain off the lemon water and rinse the pears a few times.

Pack pears into hot jars and spoon in the wine syrup over the top. Water bath can 20 minutes (pints).
