Almost six decades ago,Â one of the most admiredÂ food writers of the 20thÂ century gave us good reason to explore the world of wineÂ beyond set or occasion menus andÂ elaborate dishes, when she wrote with
simplicity and directness: â€œâ€¦As a wineÂ drinker not a wine expert, oneâ€™s tastes areÂ constantly changing. But one of the mainÂ points about the enjoyment of food andÂ wine seems to me to lie in having whatÂ you want when you want it and in theÂ particular combination you fancy.
It is possible, even at a white tableclothÂ restaurant, for a meal of a single dishÂ and a perfectly matched glass of wineÂ to become an immensely pleasurableÂ experience. Moreover, if you happen to beÂ relatively new to wine drinking it is one ofÂ the easiest â€“ and possibly least expensiveÂ â€“ ways to understand your own responsesÂ to wines and their varied characters.
