Stellenbosch: Half-Day Wine Tour

Stellenbosch: Half-Day Wine Tour

5 Hours

There are few things more pleasurable than an excellent pairing of food and wine. Correctly paired food and wine can turn a regular meal into a five-star dining experience. Pairing food and wine does not have to be reserved for special occasions. If one knows which wines pair best with which entrees, a successful gustatory marriage can happen nightly.

One might wonder why food and wine pairing has been growing in popularity over the past 30 years. The primary reason why is because experts are discovering that there actually is something behind the perfect glass of wine with certain types of foods. Wine has several properties, each of which interacts with the foods people eat and their own taste buds. Science actually supports food and wine pairing and the differences in which types of wine match best with which types of food.
