7 - What is Phenolic Bitterness

Wine enthusiasts often find themselves navigating a complex world of flavours, aromas, and textures. Among the myriad elements that contribute to a wine's profile, one aspect that occasionally takes center stage is phenolic bitterness.

5 - What Wine Pairs With Callaloo

Most who are familiar with callaloo generally eat it as an accompaniment to something else, Callaloo and Saltfish, for example. That said, I have been known to sit down to a simple bowl of callaloo on its own, and it's the lone callaloo snack times when I get to wondering "what wine would pair nicely", hence this post.

4 - Corbieres Wine Region And Why You Need To Know It

One of the keys to finding deliciously striking yet affordable wines is understanding some of the lesser talked about wine regions and the wines they produce. From there, you source what that region does best, and I guarantee you that most of your go-to and repeat-buy wines will come from this exercise.

3 - Wine In A Can And What You Need To Know

1 - What Wine Pairs with Corned Beef A.K.A. Bully Beef

Cooked bully beef

While hashing out the FriendsMas dinner for this past holiday, one friend piped up to talk about the price of food these days. Then one of us, in jest but partially largely due to nostalgia, said, "we should make bully beef and call it a day", and that is just what we did! We unscrewed a tin of Hereford Bully Beef and made magic happen!
