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.

"The formidable 2001 Californian Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain boasts an inky/purple color to the rim, and smells like blackberry liquer intermixed with acacia flowers. With extraordinary intensity, power, richness, and purity, it looks to be one of the greatest efforts made by Randy Dunn. Since none of the Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignons (first released in 1979) are close to full maturity, this 2001 dry red wine will probably need 8-10 years of cellaring; it should last for 3-4 decades. An interesting point of trivia is that Randy Dunn's production of approximately 4,000 cases of Napa and Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon per year has not changed since the winery's inception ... somewhat refreshing in view of the American cultural tendency to think that "bigger is better".
