1 Rinse the quail inside and out and pat them thoroughly dry. Look them over for any pinfeathers and remove them. Stuff each quail with 2 juniper berries, one sage leaf, and some of the garlic slices. Sprinkle the birds with salt and pepper. Place a sage leaf on top of each quail. Unroll the pancetta and wrap a slice around each quail. Tie a piece of kitchen string around the pancetta to hold it in place.
2 In a large skillet with a tight fitting lid, melt the butter with the oil over medium heat. Add the quail and brown the birds on all sides, about 15 minutes.
3 Add the wine and bring to a simmer. Cover the pan, lower the heat, and cook, turning and basting the quail with the liquid several times, 45 to 50 minutes or until the quail are very tender. Add a little water if the pan becomes too dry. Serve hot.
