Pairing Basics

For some, the rules are simple: red wine with beef, white wine with chicken. While this wine-choosing thought may provide a greater probability of success, the basic rule is even simpler yet.

Wine’s primary purpose is to "complement" your food, to punctuate, and amplify it. Everyone understands that certain combinations taste great together—like peanut butter and chocolate—and others clash terribly, like drinking lemonade after you brush your teeth. So the only true rule of pairing is to find the wine that harmonizes with your food, taking it to new heights. And, above all, Ray Wright's guiding rule is always "The best wine is the one you love the most, regardless of the variety or cost."

"Wine makes every meal an occasion, every table more elegant, every day more civilized."
