It depends entirely on what kind of meal I'm eating it with.

I would still say that I do have a fondness for red wine though.
But I still wouldn't pick a red wine with say fish meals or chicken (besides tikka masala).

I do have particular wines I like with particular foods

Neither, I don't drink often.

I don’t drink regularly. Just occasionally, such as social gatherings.

But I always drink Red, because it has healthy Polyphenol from the Red grape skins.

One thing to remember about drinking Wine, is completely rinse your mouth out with Water after.

Because acidity of wine erodes your teeth enamel, which increases chance of tooth decay and cavities.

So remember, after Wine drinking, do Water rinsing :idea:

Personally, I prefer to rinse with wine after drinking water. My teeth are fine.

I have opted for white wine, but rosé is great too. :heart:

Have you tried any wines that were not made from grapes? Cranberry wine has an exceptional tartness that goes well with red meats, while pear wine has an ephemeral lightness that does not impose itself upon the palate.


Cooking red wine goes with meats, white with fish and I personally drink anything that isn't dry and highly vintage like Port or Malbec.
Anything from Australia makes me sick and I don't know about being a wine merchant but I know where the fermentation process is likely to take place. I like fruit or grape juice, but anything in a flavoursome dish has to add some wine. If you like condiments on the side there are plenty within reach in your local farm deli. We don't stock a great supply of the pear type wines, but I'd like to see some more of it shipped in over here, preferably before a crash supply falls in the industry.

^ My mother used to enjoy a glass or two of Merlot but has since discovered Malbec.

I rarely drink now but red wines upset my GERD, so I voted white. I used to enjoy Soave or Cava.

I think I'll buy a Malbec once I finish the Merlot.
