Wine and Food Pairing
Most of us only focus on preparing delicious food, crafting the perfect menu, not on selecting the perfect wine. Even though we plan how the food should be served, we also need to pay attention to the serving of the wine.
Karnas Vineyard will teach you the importance of choosing the perfect wine that matches the menu. One rule that is most often followed is to match both flavor types and the flavor intensity of the wine to the dish. Remember not to make one flavor more intense than the other, and make sure that the profiles of the flavors blend with one another. A less-than-perfect match of wine and food won’t ruin your day, but a good match will elevate your dining experience. Besides the flavor types and intensities, serving the wine at the correct temperature is essential.
However, the chef present will personally meet you and tell you more about the food he will serve and how he prepares the menu for each course to complement it with the wine. Therefore, master the art of pairing food with good wine at the perfect temperature at Karnas Vineyards. Now that you have learned about the wine and food pairings, have fun for the rest of your life.
