An indivudual who enjoys drinking wine more than most, this would be the person you ask… “what kind of wine goes best with lamb shanks and sweet peas?”
I love my wine, but often find myself drinking the same kinds. My weekly glasses usually involve Chateau St Michelle Riesling and Fat Boy Red (which you can’t buy in FL, but thanks to the in-laws, we usually have a good supply). Anyways, my love of wine has grown over the past two years. I’ve recently started stepping out of the box, trying new wines. Sometimes, I’ll ask for suggestions from the people at the store. Most of the time, I enjoy the varieties my mom brings me when she comes to visit (thanks mom). This summer I’ve enjoyed trying many new recipes and I always wonder what kind of wine would go best with the meals I’m making. Not saying I’m going to go buy a wine to go with each meal, but it’s always something that has interested me. It would also be great to do for special meals (birthdays, anniversaries, dinner parties, etc). So I decided to do a little research. Here a a few websites I’ve found, and bookmarked. They have a good variation of food and wine pairings. I also came across this neat $10 wine reviews page. Enjoy!
Wine Answers *This site even has a drop down menu to find food to make with specific wine and vice versa. How Cool!
If any of you have tried some fabulous new wines recently, please share!
