Wine and Food

For those who don't know, there is some art involved in drinking wine whilst ingesting food. 

Lea Maria knew all about it and even had a chart: For instance, fish should be eaten with white wine and red meat with red wine. 

That is actually based on scientific studies of how the palate reacts to the contact with those elements, believe it or not.

A bit of research, for instance, brings some results on matching wine and food.

Match Food with Wine is a good place to look for what wine matches the type of food you will consume: Just click on the option Find a Match and then enter whatever you want to have with wine in the white rectangle.

There are still the details, such as that Port Wine should probably be a dessert wine (On Port), and therefore be consumed after the meal is over, perhaps to declare to our stomach that it is all really over.
