How to Find the Right Wine for Your Food

While the right wine to drink with your meal depends entirely on what wine you enjoy, it is true that the right wine selection can really complement a delicious meal. Knowing what wine goes with what food is especially handy when throwing a formal dinner party, because you may not know the individual tastes of your guests, and you certainly don’t want the wine and food combination to clash. Luckily, you don’t need to be a food and wine connoisseur to make the right pairings — as long as you follow a few basic principles.

Match the flavours

There is no strict formula for matching wine with food. Rather, try using your senses to come up with the perfect combination. The aroma of the wine can help guide you. For instance, a strong, full-bodied wine will overpower light-tasting food such as fish. Not only that, but the right wine can actually bring out the flavour in food. For example, serving a sweet wine will make a dessert taste sweeter. However, if you pair a dry wine with sweet food, the flavour and aromas of each will stand out more.

With modern cuisine becoming more mixed and wines coming from new regions all around the world, the pairing choices are becoming greater and the complexities more confounding.

When the union of food and wine works well, they each enhance the other, making the meal greater than if you had consumed the two separately. Even if you are preparing a gift basket for someone, it’s important that, in the case of wine gift baskets, you appropriately pair the wine with the other gourmet selections.
