Food & Wine

There are some main principles in the way that we combine food and wine from which the most important one is our personal taste which leads us to our ultimate personal choices. However, we will try to present you some basic principles so as to help you create your own favorable combinations.

Wine & Food

THE PERFECT COMBINATION

The main idea in combining wine with food is to pay attention to the specific taste characteristics of both food and wine and to be careful not to overbalance each other, preventing this way a true enjoyment.

Here are some qualities that will help you tastefully combine wine with food:

Geography

The local cuisine and the local wines have evolved together through time. A physical link between them has therefore developed.

Similarity

Similar taste qualities encourage one another and build a culinary palette.

Contrast

Different taste qualities often highlight and elevate the flavors and aromas of one another resulting in the structure of a very tasteful palette.

Intensity & Sensitivity

Delicate flavor structures are seeking wines with fine aromas and flavors. Dishes which are bold in flavor best combine dynamic wines with strong personalities.

These principles of combining may help you begin your culinary quest.
Don’t forget though that at least 50% of the fun is the experimentation and the search itself.

 

Enjoy!
