Watch out for salt and fat!

Salt softens the acidity in wine, so choose higher acidity styles.

Fat goes well with acid and citrus.

Lambrusco is often a winner with cured meat because of the good acidity and fruit. Bubbles help to cut the fat and it is low in alcohol, an advantage when salumi makes you thirsty.

Avoid: Tannic reds and oaky whites.

Go Local

Make it a habit to eat and drink local. Expand your skills to understand the passion that wine communicates. Explore the range of possibilities a grape can express through culture, terroir, and climate.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
