Occasions for Wine

There are so many occasions for wine!  We all have given speculation to what wine to pair with different foods as well as the selection for celebrating.  There are numerous occasions for wine!  From the Texas sunrise to sunset and all in between!

What are your favorite times for popping the cork?

Wining and Dining

It’s time to dine, therefore it must be time for wine!  In a pinch, basic thoughts are necessary when quickly choosing the right accompaniment with your entrée.

If you are dining on fish, pork, or poultry, it’s safe to think White.  A nice Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay as well as a nice Viognier can complement these dishes.

When the entrée boasts a hearty red meat or even a spicy dish, then you think Red.  Pinot Noir, Merlot, Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, these are all great choices.

Picnics and sunsets:

Let’s not forget the casual picnic with a beautiful Texas sunset.   Sliced cheeses, Summer sausage, Kalamata olives, fresh loaf of baguette bread, is there any better time for your favorite wine?!

And don’t forget dessert!

Desserts are usually reserved for the sweet wines.  Just be sure your wine is sweeter than the dish.  There is also much to be said about sweet with a savory meal!  More importantly, always choose what you enjoy!  So many choices, so little time.

Celebrating the Special Moments

Celebrating is the time to reach for the bubbly.  The excitement of popping a cork, pouring the bubbles, toasting the celebration!  Sparkling wines and Champagne are the ones most preferred for pairing with festivities, because there’s nothing better than bubbles! 

Weekend brunch brings about the mimosas.  The mingling of the Sparkly and a bit of OJ, actually partner well with any breakfast item! 

The congratulatory salute for a long awaited job promotion.  We think of bubbles tickling the nose!

Quiet moments:

What about a pleasant sipping while you are cuddled up on the couch with a movie or a good book?  These are those “moments” and furthermore, deserve to be accompanied with a terrific  tasty Port.  A fortified treat that is sweet and smooth on the palate.  Therefore, you can sip to your content.
