taste balance between wine and food has always been a subject of
discussion between oenophiles.
there are some basic rules used to identify wine and food pairing it
does not mean that these rules are absolute, things change constantly so
are our likes and dislikes.
through personal experimentation one can finally say that they
discovered a certain taste they like. And again, they can always change
their mind later.
to people it is certain that they will all agree on this:
- white wine pairs
with white meat and
- red wine pairs with
Some also agree
- white wine is best
with light food and
- red wine is best
with heavier food
Some like to pair food
and wine by matching the smell.
Some general guidelines
exist as far as the drinking order of wine during a meal :
- white wine before
- young wines before
- dry wines before
- soft wines before
- Never pair a wine with
food that is sweeter than the wine is.
