red... pinot noir
Red_Vespa saidNaturally I know the traditionally correct wine for a given dish. Unfortunately, red wine will often give me a headache. If a host serves me a red I will sip it out of good manners, but seldom drink the full glass.
I prefer the new rule, in effect for over 20 years in the US now I think, that says the old rule doesn't apply. I drink white wine with everything because it agrees with me, even though it may not necessarily be in agreement with the dish. And at home I offer my guests their choice of red or white, regardless of what food is on the table.
In fact, since I stock a wide selection, I offer them their individual choice among the reds & whites, even if they don't consume the entire bottle. Pleasing my friends & guests far outweighs the insignificant cost of a bottle of wine.
