Pair This with What?

Hosting a dinner party or social gathering with food and wine can be daunting if you have not done it before. Depending on what is being paired, it is important to consider the components of both—what foods are being served, and what beverages you wish to pair or highlight. The other part to consider is which do you want to showcase, the beverage (in this case, wine) or the food(s). To add more to your decision making, you could also opt to do both, along the course of your agenda, with some pairings to highlight the wine, some showcasing the food and others highlighting the way each compliments each other.

A label can express a level of quality or the basic amount of production element done to that wine to achieve that level of quality. If done well, the customer can have a legitimate amount of confidence in what is purchased, be it a high-end bottle or an every day table wine. The level of quality expressed, like many other parts of economics, will translate to the amount of money a customer would be willing to pay.
