(WE WON’T TELL IF YOU DON’T FOLLOW THEM)
White wine with fish, red wine with beef. That is the extent of knowledge most people have. However, since discovering a few wines that we really enjoy, it is time to learn a few very basic rules on selecting a wine.
If you are looking for advanced information, then this “primer” may bore you. However, for the rest of you who may not know the first thing about wine, here are a few very basic guidelines.
The trick to selecting a wine to go with your meal is to heighten the sensory experience. Contrast is the key in many cases, while in others, a complimentary taste may work beautifully. It is like putting sour cream on a hot, spicy burrito to even out the heat, or enjoying a sharp cheddar cheese with a sweet apple.
Enjoying a gastronomic delicacy or a series of them is one thing. Adding a decadent wine or two may take it over the top.
Most of all, experiment. Wine isn’t all about seriousness. Have some fun with it. Life, like wine, is meant to be savored. Enjoy!
