Opis ebooka Good Wine Guide - Tiziana M.

Many of us are not even vaguely familiar with the different varieties of wine that are available for purchase. In fact, some of us probably thought red wine and white wine were the only ones in existence. Most of us don’t have any idea of the number of varieties of wine that are in existence. We have dinner wines, dessert wines, red wines, white wines, dry red wine, dry white wine, sweet red wine, sweet white wine and much more. Before you serve your first dinner that includes wine, make sure to understand something about wines. Know what is proper to serve with different meals.A general rule of thumb is white wine with white meat and red wine with red meat, but there may sometimes be variations to that. For instance, although chicken is a white meat, red wine is the customary wine of choice because it complements a chicken meal better than white wine.

Becoming Familiar with WineMany of us are not even vaguely familiar with the different varieties of wine that are available forpurchase. In fact, some of us probably thought red wine and white wine were the only ones inexistence. Most of us don’t have any idea of the number of varieties of wine that are inexistence. We have dinner wines, dessert wines, red wines, white wines, dry red wine, dry whitewine, sweet red wine, sweet white wine and much more. Before you serve your first dinner thatincludes wine, make sure to understand something about wines. Know what is proper to servewith different meals.A general rule of thumb is white wine with white meat and red wine with red meat, but there maysometimes be variations to that. For instance, although chicken is a white meat, red wine is thecustomary wine of choice because it complements a chicken meal better than white wine.Another variation is turkey which has both white meat and dark meat. Because of both whiteand dark meat on turkey, one can choose to serve either white or red wine while some mayactually serve both—red to the guests who choose dark meat and white to those who choosewhite meat.Another thing that is important to understand is the relationship between red wine and fish.Customarily you would serve white wine with fish but in the event you choose to serve red wine,it’s important to choose one that does not contain any tannins since the presence of tannins intwine you serve with fish may give the wine a metallic taste. Though the taste itself is not goingto cause any harm, one drinks wine for the flavor thus having a metallic taste takes away fromthat. To avoid this possibility either serve white wine with fish or make sure the red wine youserve is free of tannins.Before you have your first party or even serve your first wine with dinner make sure you knowexactly what you should serve with the meal you have chosen. Taking the time to research andlearn about how wines complement food, you will be able to make a better selection of wine togo with the dinner you are serving. The more dinners you serve the more educated, you willbecome about the proper wine to serve. 

Choosing a Dessert WineMost people know you should choose white wine with white meat and red wine with red meat,but what about dessert wine? Is there a protocol for choosing a dessert wine? One of the mostimportant things to remember is to not serve desserts that are so sweet that they give the winean overpowering taste. You want to choose a wine that will complement your dessert and add toan already elegant taste. If you do anything less you are not doing a service to your dessert,wine or guests.One of the dessert wines is that of port and comes in tawny, ruby, and vintage varieties. Thesewines are usually very sweet and are a good pairing for fruit desserts including pumpkin pie andcobblers. The tawny ports have a nutty flavor and are a good pairing for anything in the milkchocolate variety while vintage ports work well with dark chocolate. Some of the French winesthat have a very high fruity taste are recommended with cheeses, creamy desserts and fruitycreamy desserts. Ice wines are a good pairing with grapes, light-flesh fruits, tropical fruits andhazelnuts. They are also a very good complement to nutty or desserts containing Carmel.There are other varieties of dessert wines as well that you may wish to pair with differentdesserts you may be serving. You may want to take the time to try the wine on your guests byhaving them over for a tasting party before you actually serve any of the dessert wines. Chooseone or two that you feel would be good matches and get the opinions of some people younormally invite to your dinner parties. . Getting some opinions before you pair any dessert winewith a dessert will allow you time to make another selection if your first selection is not wellreceived. You may even want to have a few different dessert choices in order to discover whichones your guests feel may go the best with the wine you plan to serve.Keep in mind that dessert wines are not like ordinary wines—they are much sweeter and assuch will have a much stronger flavor if you serve a dessert that is too sweet. You are muchbetter off staying with fruity desserts and choose a dessert wine that will complement yourdessert rather than overpower it. 

 

Choosing a High Quality WineIf you’re not familiar with the various winemakers, it is unlikely you really have an idea how tochoose a high quality wine. Making a good choice means you have to know the wine makingprocess of the manufacturer you choose. If you are unable to research a wine maker, you cancertainly take the time to ask different friends, relatives and associates for their preferences inwine. Whether you’re serving wine for a family dinner or a dinner party, you want to make sureyou serve a high quality variety.One thing to keep in mind when buying wine is that “cheap” wine can often make a persondrinking it ill. That doesn’
