Wine with food

There is extensive literature on the subject of "the right wine for a meal", with sometimes diametrically opposed recommendations. Even professionals such as sommeliers in award-winning restaurants often give very different recommendations. Does this mean that it doesn't matter which wine is drunk with which dish? In principle, the very simple rule can apply: "Whatever tastes good goes". But there are actually a number of dishes that virtually demand a certain type of wine. There are some basic rules for enjoying several wines. However, the following explanations should at best only be understood as a suggestion, because drinking wine and eating is first and foremost a pleasure through the senses and not a purely "objective" and measurable scientific matter.
