Food With Wine

It is very important to select the best matched food with any wine; a wrong choice of food can spoil all the fun and taste of a very good wine. Generally, it is conventional that white wine should be drunk with white meat and red wine with red meat. But nowadays, no one just has meat or chips with wine.

As the wine producing regions have increased in number, the taste and flavours of wine have also changed. This increases the confusion more, as wine lovers can't choose the supplementary food items with wine easily. Some wine lovers believe that any food can go with any wine, but basically we don't eat any heavy meat item with white wine.

A good combination of wine and food enhances your fun and excitement more than any normal combination. Some example of good combinations of wine and food are given below:
Stilton with port, foie gras with sauternes, boeuf bourguignon with Burgundian pinot noir and goat cheese with sauvignon Blanc.

Before experimenting any new combination one should always consider the flavour factor. This is the only thing that can double your fun or even can spoil all the fun. Another aspect is the acidity; food with less acidity should be preferred most. Acidic wine can be found in those areas where the acidic food is prepared. It is very safe to have the local food with the same region's wine. But there are many regions where foreign wines are sold; food selection is a big problem there.

Salty dishes work well with acidic wine. Sparkling wines like Californian wines or French champagne can be used to refresh the taste of fish dishes. Bubbly wines are used to drink with spicy food. Food from South East Asia (like Thai) is filled with chilly and pepper. These food items are compiled with citrus acid, so wines with acidic taste are with some flavour of sweetness. Wines with lots of fruit are mostly prescribed for this kind of food.

Game birds such as quail, turkey, guinea have earthy taste which is more tasteful than chicken. These are more preferable with white wine, while the red wines should be taken with wild game birds.

Louis Affre Bourgogne Haute Cotes de Nuits Futs de Chene

The wines of Dufouleur in Nuits St. Georges are some of the most consistent in Burgundy's Cote D'Or. We have been offering the firm's "Louis Affre" label for several years, and this recent addition is another admirable French Chardonnay from their portfolio of fine wines. We found this "futs de chene" dry white wine to have oak flavors that have been well integrated with the ripe fruit, and not domineering. This is a well rounded and deeply flavored Chardonnay from the upper vineyards of the Cotes de Nuits which can hold its own from fine wines from Chassagne or Meursault. Great gift! BHCN02 BHCN02

5 Tips For Experiencing A Wine Festival

Copyright 2006 B Hopkins

Almost every state in the country has a wine festival. It is a great way to sample the wines of the region and to become familiar with some of the great wineries that are right in your backyard.

If you decide to go to a wine festival, there are some things you can do to make the most out of the wine festival you are attending. Coming back from the festival with your favorite bottle of wine is always enjoyable, but to get even more benefit, you can follow these tips.

1. Decide beforehand if you will do wine tasting or not.

If you decide to taste the wine, you will need to make sure of at least 2 things: First, bring along a designated driver who will decide to go dry during the festival, or, if you do wine tasting, make sure you spit the wine out in one of the many buckets they have available.

Another thing you will need to decide, is which wines you would like to taste. Many wine festivals are arranged by types of wineries and the wines they serve. Most wineries will have their own booths which are easily indicated on the maps of the event that are given out at the wine festival.

2. Sample the foods at the food booths at the wine festial

One of the great pleasures of having wine is the combination of the food and wine together. Many of the food booths that are on display are great in combination with the wines that are in the tasting tour.

Be sure to ask the vendors at the food tables what wines that are currently in tasting go best with their foods. The vendors should have a list of the wineries and wines that are up for tasting, so they should be able to give you some additional insight with the food and wine combination.

Another benefit is that it will put food in your stomache, which will keep you from being tipsy early on in the wine festival.

3. Sample some of the wines from each of the different wine regions

Depending upon the size of the festival, the variety of wineries will dictate how many regions are introduced. At the Lafayette Wine Festival in Colorado, there were several different regions throughout the state represented. Colorado has some varied climates so there are a number of wines that should be tasted, to experience the variety of flavors that come from the Colorado wineries.

4. Keep track of your wine tastings on a score card

Most wine festivals will give you a card or sheet of paper to be able to keep track of your wine selections. As you taste the wine, keep track of the wine you tasted and how you liked the flavor. Get ideas from the wineries serving the wine about which foods would go best with the wines you really enjoyed, and write that down.

The more you take notes at the wine festival, the less you will have to think about after the festival. There is nothing more frustrating that trying to remember which wines you liked, and what foods they would go best with. After a full day of wine tasting, your brain cells probably won't function as well by the end of the day, so take notes as you go through the festival.

5. Have fun at the wine festival

Last but not least, as if I had to tell you... Have a lot of fun at the wine festival. Wine festivals are almost always a festive event where most people are having a great time. Experience the energy of people tasting wine, getting a bit tipsy, and just having a great time.

Meet and talk with the other wine festival attendees. You will usually find them quite friendly after an hour of wine tasting. The winery merchants are quite willing to talk to you about their wines, and the tours of their vinyards they offer. Make a full day of it and see if you can make a new friend or business associate.

Wine festivals can be a lot of fun and also a great learning experience for the wine enthusiast. Following some simple tips can give you a lot more out of the experience and will give you a great springboard to enjoy more wine festivals in your area or in another state entirely.
