Wine is better to eat: how to pair with food according to the type of grape

We are learning to drink wine. We already know, for example, that you have to put quality before quantity. In fact, in Spain less liters of wine are drunk per year than a quarter of a century ago, but we drink them better.Who else who least knows some brands or names; others are already doing wine tourism; and some even know how to combine wine and food, beyond the dangerous (for erroneous) obviousness of white for fish and red for meats.A pairing or harmony is the process of accompanying a food with a wine, seeking the maximum balance between the two. It is not an exact science; it is a subjective task. In the end, the best advice will always be that we drink the wine that we like. But yo...

What Peruvian winery has launched a natural wine inspired by Sophia Loren?

According to the criteria ofKnow moreSophia Loren (Rome, 1934) has never visited Peru. Not that it is known, and it certainly would have been known. The only thing we can be certain of is that the first thing that would have been offered to you when you set foot on our shores is a pisco sour. Almost immediately, as custom dictates, someone would have asked him if he liked it.Back in 1959 a curious television initiative sought to build bridges between these lands and the Italian film diva. In the program “A Hollywood con Nivea”, broadcast by Panamericana Televisión and hosted by Pepe Ludmir (who had the opportunity to interview her at least a couple of times), a contest was organized at that time to find the Peruvian Sophia Loren with tests that spanned months. The winner would receiv...

The new wave of ‘txakoli’

Three kitchen classics with wine

Anyone who has had the slightest contact with cooking knows that wine is used in small doses to liven up multiple dishes. What perhaps not many people know is that this drink also serves, in large quantities, as a cooking liquid in some classic dishes of Mediterranean European cuisine, in which it goes from supporting actor to protagonist. Today we put together three good examples: in Spain, the choricitos -in our case, chistorras- to wine; by France, the legendary Coq Au Vin or chicken with wine and, for Italy, the spaghetti all'ubriaco (something like drunk spaghetti). For the first ones, we use a scent; for the second, a white wine, and for the pasta, a red. You do not have to throw the house out the window using a Vega Sicilia, but do not go to the cheapest tetrabrik in the super...

Fool Us means "fool us" and it is an American television program that airs on the CW and is recorded in Las Vegas. Penn and Teller are the wizards to be fooled, to be fooled, as they say. They are the magicians who hold the record for the l...
