Wine & Alcohol

Over the years, my wife and I have developed a real appreciation for wine.  Pairing wine with food is an art, and I am by no means an expert. But as with cooking, when I want to learn about something, I go out and do research and talk to the experts.  I have learned a fair amount about wine pairing, and I am happy to pass this information on to you.  Finding the perfect wine to pair with a meal can take the food from good to great, or even from great to exceptional. But having a wine that clashes with the flavor of the food can ruin what would otherwise be a wonderful meal.
Along with articles on wine pairing, I’ve written some articles about my favorite wines as well as on decanting.  You’ll also find some great information here on different kinds of wine bottle closures—wineries are using way more than just cork these days. I even found a very cool glass stopper that is starting to gain some ground in the United States.
