Sauté the aromatics, slowly in enough olive oil to keep them from sticking to the pan. After about 10 minutes add the wheat berries, stir to distribute and begin ladling the simmering stock into the sauté. The liquid should be maintained at a slow simmer and be allowed to reduce to half before another ladleful is poured over the sauté. Proceed in this way until you have about one cup of stock left. At this point, raise the heat and add the wine, stirring to cook off the alcohol. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as needed, use remaining stock to adjust the texture, it should be very soft and porridge like. Water can be used if you’ve run out of stock. Serve immediately.
