Wine is not just a drink, but also a part of the rich tradition of many countries. It is obtained from grapes, and the variety of this berry, from which the wine was produced, largely determines what its taste, bouquet and quality will be. The best varieties come from countries such as France, Spain, Italy. On the Russian and Eastern European market, Bulgarian, Moldovan, Georgian wines are popular.
Greek varieties of wine are gradually gaining increasing recognition in the markets of Europe, which also include drinks from Africa, Latin America or New Zealand.
If you talk about color, then you can divide this kind of alcohol into red, white and pink wines. Reds are made from black grapes. White varieties are a combination of black and white grapes, and pink ones are made from a mixture of varieties.
Unripe white wine in a barrel is currently the most popular.
As for the sugar content, we can distinguish the following structure: dry, semi-dry, semisweet, sweet and very sweet, and also liqueurs. Taking into account the peculiarities of wine, sparkling wines, aerated, herbal (aperitifs) and medicinal wines should be mentioned. It is necessary to list the most popular wines: Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Muscat (white wine), Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Syrah (red). Traditionally it is believed that German wine products are particularly soft and loved by women. While Spanish wines are for connoisseurs, which is associated with a special stamina and endurance. The main problem for the buyer in this case is the choice according to his tastes. After a short translation of labels and poor knowledge of the specifics of Spanish wines little will say to the ignorant.

Going to the wine store, we can see a huge wealth of types of wines. At the same time, it is important not only what sorts are represented, but also the country of origin, and also the grape variety. You can note the tendency to move away from strict rules, namely from a clear definition of what drinks are suitable for specific dishes. Perhaps the reason is that this alcohol is no longer used only on special occasions. Today, more and more people are constantly drinking wine on ordinary weekdays, and this is not connected with any specific occasion for celebration.
Nevertheless, there are rules that outline how best to choose certain varieties for a meal. Wines dry and pink are usually served to fish and seafood, poultry and meat. Red dry is best served with red meat, game, spicy cheese and dishes with mushrooms. Sweet grades are suitable for desserts. Semi-sweet and semi-dry wines significantly improve the taste of Asian cuisine. If you find it difficult to decide on your own, try to visit a specialized store. A professionally trained staff will give you tips, so you can easily find those wines that will suit your needs.
