Wine tasting & Food pairing

Wine tasting & food pairing @ Zampano

Taste wine like a professional in 3 steps: Look, smell, taste!

A food and wine pairing is a procedure during which we try to create a balance between the components of a dish and the characteristics of a wine in hopes of enhancing the flavour of both and getting the best out of the combination.
