Exclusive wine pairing
Wine has been, according to historians, the drink of gods and kings. In the Greek and Roman period, it was a precious commodity, and this precious value has been kept until nowadays. His pairing is, today, a very exclusive practise.
Wine has different shades, colours, and smells depending on the Mediterranean origin of the grape, that gives different characteristics to it.
In basic wine pairing, experts recommend to have white wine with fish and red wine with meat, while the sweet ones are better for deserts. But do not stress over this basic tips, there are plenty of combinations, as many as types of wines and foods.
