 Slowly cook the onions in the butter and oil, in a heavy covered pot for 45
 minutes. Add salt and
 sugar. Add flour 1 T at a time, stirring constantly. Cook for five minutes
 more. Add the stock,
 two cups at a time, stirring after each addition. Add the wine. Simmer the
 soup, partially covered, 
 for one hour. Skim and serve. Adjust seasonings. 
 (Do not serve with grated cheese or toasted French bread, which detract
 from the consistency and
 flavor of this carefully balanced brew.)
