Paring wine with food…

How a food is seasoned & prepared can influence it’s harmony with wine. While it’s always a splendid idea to drink what you like, if you feel inclined to intentionally pair your wine with your meal take note:

— Dry wine doesn’t play well with sweet foods.

— Choose a wine with a similar flavor footprint as the meal, delicate with delicate or intense with intense.

— Browned foods (grilled or roasted) have a toasty resemblance to oaked wines.

— Big fat colors go well with big fat flavors. Wispy colors go well with wispy flavors.

— Be willing to be surprised. Don’t take it so seriously that the thrill is gone. It’s a beautiful world of variants… enjoy it.
