Despite the growing popularity of wine among all ages of adults it seems that ordering a bottle of wine to go with dinner is still on the list of things most people are afraid of. Pairing wine with food can be a little intimidating but there are some nice guidelines that can be followed to get the perfect wine and dinner combination just about every time.
For those who are afraid to order that wine the only real cure is to taste as many wines as possible to build up a palate and a stronger knowledge on wine. The best way to do this is to attend wine tastings, festivals, and seminars to learn all you can while trying a large variety of wines from all around the world.
The knowledge that comes from tasting wines can go a long way toward building up a confidence in wine selection as the dinner table. Whether looking to find the perfect wine for those stemless red wine glasses, or white wines, having tried several can significantly make selection easier. And if there is still a little doubt do not be shy to ask the wine steward for suggestions on which bottle would pair best with the food you ordered, they are always more than happy to help out.
