Who doesn’t love a good meal, complimented by a nice drink? I know I certainly have a penchant for it. Below we cover the right way to ‘wine and dine’.
The Antique Wine Company specializes in fine and rare wines, and is based in London, England. This company is known for record-breaking wine collections, as well as fine wine events. They offer an array of services, ranging from sourcing rare wines to private wine master classes and cellar planning. “I want to sell something that people would buy again and again and get a great deal of pleasure,” owner Stephen Williams has said of his booming business.
Wine and food are one of the most ideal combinations, which people have enjoyed for centuries. There is a wine that pairs well with almost anything you decide you want, you just have to figure out what compliments what.
For example, champagne pairs well with anything salty. Sauvignon Blanc goes well with tart dressings and sauces. Like a dish with fresh herbs? Choose a bottle of Gruner Veltliner. Thinking fish? Pinot Grigio is a light wine that pairs well with seafood.
Or you can pair cheesy dishes with a dry Rose, and Pinot Noir is great for earthy dishes (anything with mushrooms, for example). The possibilities and food pairings are virtually endless, and can be very interesting to experiment with.
Nothing tops an evening or even a special occasions like a good meal and a fine wine to go with it. It can be a relaxing, wonderful experience you can share with family and loved ones, or even enjoy by yourself.
