Best Type of Wine for Your Party

Wine is an alcoholic drink which gets its colour from the fermentation of wine grapes which are smaller and sweeter compared to table grapes Wine types differ on the grape used so a bottle of wine can be labelled as Single-Varietal which means that only one variety of grape has been used. Wine Blend on the other hand is a bottle of wine in which multiple single variety wines have been mixed together. This happens after the ageing process is complete. Other varieties of wines are made from different fruits such as plums, apples and cranberries just to name a few. 

The variations in the ageing process gives Wine a variety of colour, aroma, sweetness, acidity, alcohol and tannin levels. Though wine is popularly referred by its colour and sweetness levels, it is important to choose the right Wine to pair correctly with the food you are serving, The most common Wines are:

  • Red dry wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon that are paired with red meats and firm cheeses
  • Sweet red wines like Zinfandel that go together with white meats and Asian Cuisine
  • White dry wine like Chardonnay goes well with seafood platters, dishes with cream and medium-firm cheeses
  • Sweet white wines like Muscat can be paired with Thai, Vietnamese and Indian dishes as well as with fondue.
