HOW IT WORKS
Each pairing is individually selected based on the following criteria:
+ Relative weights: Ensuring that neither the food nor the wine overpowers the other.
+ Flavor bridges: Choosing flavors in your food that complement or mirror those present in the wine.
+ Elements of Taste: Matching the food and its accompaniments with the wines that will best enhance their tastes.
