Bookend Your Menu of Quality Foods by Pairing Them with Quality Wines

Quality Wine
3/20/2017

Most good meals are separated by moments of rest. In these moments, we confer with our guests, we hold discussions, we commune with one another and, perhaps most importantly, we enjoy fine drinks. Meals begin with an appetizer, then an interim, then a main course, then an interim, then conclude with dessert. In each of these interims, our meals are bookended by company and wine. In many ways, the wines that we drink are more important than the meals that we eat because they facilitate discourse. They create a bond across the table, bridging generations and generating lines of discussion.
