Finding the perfect marriage between wine and food can be tricky.
Finding the perfect pairing isn't always easy, there are so many flavors and options to consider, it's hard to know which is best, a process that can easily go from enjoyable to stressful.
We're all familiar with the basic rules - white wine pairs well with chicken and seafood while red goes with red meat but in all honesty, it doesn't have to be that way.
You are allowed to break the rules and follow your intuition when it comes to pairing wine and food. Having seafood for dinner? Try a light red instead, it'll surprise you how well they complement each other.
Thanks to wine enthusiasts at Wine Folly you don't have to be a sommelier to know what combination works. They have created an awesome color-coded pairing chart that you can use as a guideline.
You can save it on your phone, stick it on your fridge or order a book finish print to frame for your kitchen or dining room.
