Wouldn't it be great if you could confidently order from a restaurant's wine menu, knowing full well how to go about wine pairing? For the uninitiated, it seems like such a mystery. You don't need a university degree to learn about the nuances of complementary powers of food and wine, but you could always take a night course to help you out.
Taking continuing education workshops related to wine pairing is a great idea if you're just moving into your own place for the first time and plan to host a lot of parties. It's also a great idea if you're a world traveler, or even if you just take a nice yearly vacation. Where ever you go, you'll feel more confident when ordering wine and you'll be more likely to try something new. There's no need to stick with the same old bottle of Merlot when you know what you're looking for. To some people, there are two types of wine: red and white. To others, there's a whole world of international flavors and nuances: crisp, fruity, sparkling, etc.
If you happen to have an event coming up really soon and there's no time to take a night course or a wine pairing workshop, have a look around the liquor store and/or ask for help. Many liquor stores post suggestions on wine pairings that make it a little easier to pick and choose.
