Wine and Food Pairing

What wines pair best with specific foods?

This is a huge topic for discussion but the following may provide some help

  • Big food, big wine
  • tannins help cut through fat
  • go regional (i.e Italian food, italian wine)
  • flavours can complement each other but only one can be the star (the food or the wine)
  • sometimes, contrasting flaours accentuate flavours (e.g  off-dry wine with spicy food)
  • the internet can provide some great ideas
