It is said “if it grows together, it goes together“. Soil, topography, and climate all have an effect on food and wine separately. The same nutrients and minerals go into everything that’s grown in a region, both food and grapes, and it’s all exposed to the same weather and topographical patterns.
These impact the profile of the wine and often result in flavours that match the local cuisine. If you’re looking to drink wine alongside them, a grape varietal that grows from the same ground will harmoniously enhance whatever you are eating.
