Would you like to understand a bit more about wine, what are the types of wine, how they go with some types of food and so on?We had an in-depth discussion about the various aspects of wine and food, with Miss Karishma Grover, Co-Owner and Wine-Maker at Grover Wines.

Here are the questions we asked her:

  1. A Lot of people think of wine as a pretentious drink. Your take?
  2. How would you prefer to classify wines? (Red/White? Table/Dessert/Sparkling?) Could you tell our viewers more about these particular type of wines?
  3. Does wine have any health benefits?
  4. Since a majority of our group members are foodies, I am sure they would like to know which type of wines pair well with food?
    1. Rich Gravy Dishes (Paneer/Chicken)?
    2. Steaks (Chicken/Beef/Pork)?
    3. Curries with a light gravy? Soups/Broths?
    4. Classic Indian Desserts like Gulab Jamun, Gajar Halwa, Rabri?
  5. What advice would you give budding chefs on serving Wine?
  6. If left alone on an Island, which wine would you prefer to take with you and why?
