Harmonizations similarities and contrasts

The connection of food and wine is a harmony that can and should bring added value to the whole. The individual tasting of both wine and food brings us the pleasure of different products. But, the connections can and should help each other either by agreement or by contrast. Exploring the different approaches is fundamental and part of the maturing process. Sometimes the connections that seem most nonsensical are the ones that work best. Learning about which characteristics influence in the right way and why they connect with each other are some of the topics we cover in this workshop. What if all this is explained with harmonizations? Good…isn’t it?
