A Good Wine Wardrobe Needs Some Key Accessories – Part I

Wine and food pairing instructions surround us, with some contradictory viewpoints and way too many “rules” to suit me.  To my mind, the best way to confirm which pairings work for your palate is to try multiple wines with dinner.  Try this 3 or 4 nights in a row, say once a month.  Sorry, this doesn’t mean you get to drink 3 bottles of wine each night!  My favorite method is to use a Vacu Vin to keep the wines fresh for 3-4 nights.  If well vacuumed, the wines will retain much of their character over a few nights.

Vacu Vin

Don’t take anyone else’s word for it; decide what pairings you like best!  Experiment with different reds, whites, dry rose’s, even sparkling wines.  Try them with spicy foods, delicate fishes, souffles, steaks, and desserts.  All that matters is whether you like the combination.

But keep in mind that what my Mother always said is actually true, “Tastes change.” (I never believed her when I was little, now I grudgingly confess that she knew what she was talking about.)  What you like today may not be what you’ll like in a year or two, so be open to new wines and new experiences, and your joy in wine will increase manifold.

Remember, nature abhors a vacuum, but wine drinkers love it!
