“Wine Review: Pairing Wine with Food”

Welcome to Wine Wednesday! Here you will find new wines at an affordable price. See all of our Wine Wednesday features here. You can also view our Cocktail Corner posts here.

I am taking a little break in my wine reviews to talk about wine and food. Two things that are great on their own, but when paired correctly together are a match made in Heaven.

After talking to and observing people when I am out to eat, I have come to the conclusion that there are people out there who don’t know what wines go with what foods.

So bookmark this page and resource back to it whenever you are looking for a wine to drink with your dinner.

Oh… and here is a quick tip. Did you know there’s a proper way to hold your wine glass? Pinch the stem between your index finger and your thumb. You should never hold your glass by the bowl. There are reasons behind this. One, you won’t be able to see the wine clearly. The color of the wine will tell you a lot about the wine. And two, by holding your hand over the bowl of the glass, you risk warming up the wine. This is not that big of a deal when it comes to red wines since you drink them at room temperature, but with white wines that are chilled, this is a big no-no.

I hope you find this to be very useful.

    Thanks for this post. I eat a lot of spicy food and dark chocolate, so White Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon should be staples in my house.
