There is a great deal of literature on the subject of "the right wine for the meal", some of which contains diametrically opposed recommendations. Even professionals such as sommeliers in gourmet restaurants often give quite different recommendations. Can we deduce from this that it doesn't matter which wine is drunk with which dish? In principle, the very simple rule can apply: "It fits what tastes good". But there are indeed a number of dishes that virtually call for a certain type of wine. When drinking several wines, there are some basic rules. However, one should understand the following explanations at best only as a suggestion, because drinking wine and eating is first and foremost enjoyment through the sense organs and not a purely "objective" and measurable scientific matter.
The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.Andreas Essl
