Red Wine and Food Pairings
Wine and Food pairings is an individual choice. Every person's sense of taste is
different. In general, each person should decide for him or herself what combinations
of wine and food taste good - don't worry about what anyone else says should
work. However, I understand this is difficult when a wine drinker is
just starting out. Hence, this listing.
Remember - these are only guidelines!! You will figure out quite
quickly that your own tongue has its own idea of what goes well with what. Trust
your own judgement, and eat and drink what you enjoy!
Typically, you want to drink light-to-dark, just as when you plan a meal you
start with delicate tastes and work towards heavier tastes. For this reason, you normally
don't serve a red wine with appetizers or opening courses in a meal. Red wines do go
very nicely with heavier foods - beef, red pasta, and so on.
