The right fit brings out the depth of taste and rediscover our favourite dishes. It is worth remembering that the taste of dishes should not dominate the taste of wine and vice versa - they should complement each other and compose well - this is an art worth knowing.
According to a popular saying - tastes are not discussed. Some like sweet wines and drink them for everything, while others - regardless of the dish - choose dry red wines. However, it is worth opening up to new tastes and experiences. Knowing the secrets of selecting wine for dishes, we build culinary awareness, which will change our perception of served dishes forever.
The basis of the savoir vivre'u vivre'u
White for fish and red for meat - this is the best known rule connected with combining wines. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg. It is also worth getting to know other rules. First of all, by combining different types of wine, we start with white or light rose wines, and then move on to the heavier red wines. It is important to keep in mind the appropriate dosage temperature, which is usually in the range of 10-18°C, with white, pink and young red, rather than this lower limit. The wines should be served in transparent glasses of white, smooth glass. Sauce served to dishes determines the choice of wine, and in the case of dishes with vinegar, we should resign from this drink at all. However, there is one rule that stands above all the above - regional cuisines are governed by their own rules. Local dishes are often served with local wines, which best complement the regional dishes.
What about what? - or how to combine wine with food
Alcohols are an important element of many cultures, they play a significant role, among others, in Balkan cuisine. The cuisine of the region is varied in terms of flavours and products, based primarily on meat, but also on seafood. For the most popular lamb in Balkan cuisine, light red wine is best suited. Goat's cheese blends perfectly with white, dry wine such as Savingnon Blanc. Pink and white - they are a good addition to all kinds of fish, and sweet is a perfect addition to dessert.
If you have a dilemma as to which wine to choose - one tip may be valuable - a good choice will always be sparkling wine. It is a classic aperitif, also suitable for every occasion and dish. Regardless of all the rules, it is worth remembering that the most important thing during meetings at the table is well-being!
