    In a large skillet over medium heat, combine the diced pears, Riesling, sugar, and cinnamon stick.  Bring to a simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated and the pears are just tender and softened, about 10-12 minutes.  Remove from the heat and stir in the nutmeg.  Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
