4 More Rules for Pairing Wine with Food
If you ask most people for tips on how to pair wine and food, they'll mumble something vague about red wine going with meat and white wine going with fish, and not have much more to offer. We're starting to become very interested in this kind of pairing, and we stumbled over an article from Ask Men offering some more in-depth information on the subject, and we even forgive their use of the word "oenophile." One detail we found interesting was the rule of thumb that you shouldn't pair a sweeter food with a less-sweet wine.
AskMen's 4 rules are:
1- Match flavors and tastes
2- Take your cues from the kitchen
3- Offset tastes
4- Start light and build up
