Wine lovers

Colloquial term for foods, spices and fruits that harmonise particularly well with wine and can therefore be called "wine friends". These can be combined relatively easily and unproblematically with a suitable wine. These include, for example, oysters, bananas, pears, strawberries, meat of all kinds, blueberries, raspberries, lobster, cheese of all kinds, mango, seafood of all kinds, pâtés and smoked salmon. In contrast, there are foods that are difficult or impossible to pair with wine. See wine enemies and wine with food.
