Why should we pair sparkling wine with food?

In particular, sparkling wine has long become an indispensable drink in every luxury party. A bottle of sparkling wine is an appropriate choice which is the perfect combination with the dishes that help to resonate the flavors, enhance the taste and increase the appetite for those dishes. That said, one of the golden rules when choosing sparkling wine for a dish is to consider wine as a spice to enhance the taste of that dish.

In addition, many customers choose to combine wine for dishes at the restaurant as a “traditional” way to show class and elegance for the party, for all people at the table.

Similar to choosing wine for cakes, you should choose sparkling wine and dish combinations that are either similar or contrasting to bring new and interesting taste experiences. The best food pairings for sparkling wine will normally consist of richer foods. Foods that are rich in fat or spicy are perfect compliments as both the acidity and effervescence help to balance heavier foods. Many call sparkling wine the ‘scrubbing bubbles’ for the palate as it perfectly cleanses the tongue in between bites.
