As you’ve probably noticed, there are thousands of different wines to choose from. So how do you know which one to pick? And what’s the best way to serve wine?
First off, most people think that white wine is only good with fish and poultry, but that’s not always true. White wines can be paired with all kinds of foods because they tend to have lower acidity levels than reds (and therefore fewer tannins).
The rule for pairing wine with food is pretty simple: no matter what kind of dish it is or who made it, match the food’s main flavour profile with your wine choice. For example, if you’re serving spicy Spanish paella topped with aioli sauce and seafood…a dry rosé will go great!
The other thing about pairing wine and food is personal preference—some people think reds go better than whites; others say brownish whites like Barolo are their favourites. The bottom line here is that there are no right answers when it comes down to choosing between these two beverages; so just remember this: whatever works best for you!
