The “Guide to Wine and Pairing” was edited by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries through the Public Company for Agricultural and Fisheries Development, a book that joins the publications of the European Institute of Mediterranean Food (IEAMED) to reveal the degree of harmony of Andalusian wines. with the various dishes that make up the region’s own gastronomy.

“The world of wine is very rich. From a context of consumption as stimulating as good food and friendly conversations, wines tell us about the countryside and nature, about geography, soil and climate, about the history of mankind, architecture and literature, cultural traditions, contacts and transfers between civilizations, health. Embracing him in all his captivating complexity is nothing but impossible. Therefore, good connoisseurs sometimes despair and tend to think that the more they try, read and travel, the less they know. Of course, this is not the case; what is happening is that learning, while giving access to new knowledge, opens the eyes to consistent areas of interest that were not previously known and for which almost everything is neglected. “

The Wine and Pairing Guide was created to magnify the cultural value of some wines that are part of the history of the Autonomous Community, as well as their connection to the new Mediterranean cuisine as one of its main ingredients. Although always in moderation, the quality of the wines grown under the denominations of origin established in the Autonomous Community supports them as indispensable ingredients in the new Mediterranean cuisine.

Red wine with wood from DO Málaga-Sierras de Málaga looks like the perfect broth for a recipe like stewed veal tail with sweet potato puree.

Amontillado is considered an ideal companion for Comté cheese soup with bay shallots, thyme, rosemary and wine.
