A wine school teaches how different wine and food pairing choices will affect the taste of each other. You may be surprised at how to taste for opposites to get the best out of both flavors. Wine school classes not only teach how to taste wine properly but also how to taste food to figure out the best wine and food pairing combinations.
For example, in a wine and food pairing combination take something with a high acid flavor to it, like pasta with tomato sauce. Tomato has a naturally acid taste to it. If you combined it with a wine that has additional heavy acid flavors, you may find both the tomato sauce and the wine both taste horrible when taken at the same time. It may not be the wine or the food that tastes bad, it is the combination. This is why it is so important to learn about wine and food pairings at a wine school.
