Core pears from bottom, leaving stem intact. If desired,use a paring knife to peel a spiral channel from tip to bottom of fruit.
Slice the bottoms off pears to allow them to stand upright. Stand pears up in the bottom of a large saucepan; add wine and vanilla. Bring mixture just to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer pears, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes or until pears are just tender.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer pears to four dessert dishes. Add sugar to liquid in pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 12 minutes or until liquid is reduced to 2/3 cup and is the consistency of a thin sauce.
Spoon sauce over pears. Drizzle honey on top. Serve warm or chilled. If desired, garnish sauce on each plate with fresh mint leaves.
