Wine that goes with Chinese Food

Since it appears that Chinese food is the second most popular food this time of year (after Turkey or some other large piece of roasted meat), it got me thinking about wines that go with Chinese food.

Growing up in a family of Chinese teetotalers, our drink of choice at dinners out was cold water, hot tea or if it was a really special occasion Coke (never Pepsi). At weddings people seemed to mostly drink beer or whiskey,

Of course we know champagne goes with everything, but are there other wines that go especially well with Chinese? What's your favourite?
