  3. 3. Wine & Food Combination • The Food and Wine combinations that most of us grew up with were the “Red wine with beef” and “White wine with fish or poultry” rules. • Since then, we've heard "any wine as long as you like it". • A person can differentiate (on average) about 9,000 different aromas. • Even those of us with a poor sense of smell can identify more than 3000 aromas. • One can taste only four things: Sweetness, Acidity, Bitterness and Saltiness.
