How to Choose a Red Wine to Compliment Your Meal

You love having wine with your meal, but rarely serve wine with home cooked meals. The truth is it can be intimidating to know which wine to serve with your meal. While you may understand that white wine goes with white meat and red goes with red meat, it’s a bit more difficult than that. For example, which red wine goes with your meal? With so many varieties to choose from, how do you choose? Here are a few tips on how to choose a red wine to compliment your meal.

Know Your Price Range

It doesn’t do you any good to head to a wine shop and tell the merchant what you’re serving, if you don’t know what you price range is. The wine merchant will gladly assist you, but will more than likely recommend the most expensive brands in the shop. However, if you have a price in mind, the merchant can then offer a selection in that price range and then help you choose the best variety.
