  1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.

  2. Generously butter one 10-cup souffl dish or six 1 1/4-cup souffl dishes; sprinkle with 1 tbsp. grated Grana Padano cheese to coat. (If using 1 1/4-cup dishes, place all 6 on rimmed baking sheet).

  3. In a small saucepan, heat the wine and milk together.

  4. Melt butter in heavy large saucepan over medium heat. Add flour, cayenne pepper and nutmeg. Cook without browning until mixture begins to bubble, whisking constantly, about one minute. Gradually whisk in milk and wine mixture.
