My father was a serious wine drinker always insisting that whites could only be drunk with fish and seafood whereas meat and pasta would be matched with reds. Pre-Digestives or aperitifs would always begin or follow the end of a meal. Torquay was his choice for desserts and cheese.

Although my love of wine originated through my father's influence, I am happy to say my outlook is far more broad and encompasses taste over anything else.

I've been known to drink a light bodied red such as a Pinot Noir or even a Tempranillo with fish and seafood. I enjoy Sauvignon Blanc with Risotto, however, I do tend to favour reds over whites.

Aah, 'Tokay'......& it's not used anymore, that word! Many old words for wine have been changed. There's no 'Sherry' either. PC'ism has infiltrated the Wine Industry!

At this point, I'm actually not sure how to do this.
Yes. The general rule is red wines with red meats and white with white meats. Rose are nice drinking wines. Sherry is good after dinner.

That's gone, Gia!

Current 'thinking' is you drink what wine you LIKE, irregardless of the food being eaten! If you want a beautiful smooth Coonawarra 'Shiraz' with your Barramundi, go for it! If you want a fruity Rose with your T-bone Steak, what's stopping you?

BTW, if you want tradition, Sherry is a PRE-Dinner drink! But if you prefer that to a Liquer with Coffee, enjoy! Cheers!

Yes. Have done various studies, very enjoyable!
I know very little about wine other than white wines with fish and red with red meat. I don't drink much at all these days but have always thought the choice should be dictated by personal taste.
I'm actually really unsure.
Try a TAFE Course! Join the Wine Service Guild!
There must be somewhere you can learn! And it's fun!
