We’ve declared this entire last week of May #NationalWineWeek because, well, one measly day isn’t nearly enough.
I’ve always been one to make the most of good times. Heck, I not only celebrate my own birthday for a whole month, but I get an extra week’s head start in the previous month with several friends who are enjoying theirs.
And any month of the year, when someone pulls a cork or turns a spigot, I get a little “happy dance” feeling that the wine’s about to start flowing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Not only can wine can enhance just about any meal; but it can also, in the best circumstances, be enhanced by the food as well.

Anyone who has ever added some herbs, spices or other seasonings while cooking a basic dish, or enhanced it afterwards with a sauce, knows that building in extra flavor can improve the dish tremendously.
Taking that a step further: At the table, bringing in the flavors of your chosen glass of wine can do exactly the same thing.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~In fact, it’s as if the wine itself is acting as a sauce for the food. And you can change up what the dish tastes like when you take a bite, depending on exactly what wine is in your glass.
Now, let’s take *that* a step further. You can make the whole tasting experience even *more* fun by trying two or more wines with the same dish.
For anyone who loves to cook (or even loves to *eat*!), this very straightforward approach – where a sip of one wine makes your food taste one way, and a sip of another wine makes it taste another way – can open doors to a whole world of new flavors.
This may be National Wine Week, but as far as I’m concerned, exploring flavors this way is a great way to go, all year round!
I’ll be back soon, my friends, with more “Drink Wine With Dinner®” recipes, pairings, and Wine Country happenings to share with you.
