Spectator Helping Out Confused Americans
They've given up some space on the bottom-left corner of their home page to link to what appears to be a handy guide to wine and food pairing. But look closely at the brands represented and you might spot a trend:
- Red Bicyclette
- Ecco Domani
- Napa Valley Vineyards (with Mac & Cheese! Your kids will love this pairing!)
- Gallo Sonoma
- Rancho Zabaco
- Louis Martini (paired with "shirt" steak -mmmm)
All are from Gallo! Its just paid ad!
One does wonder why they omitted a food pairing with Carlo Rossi's fine vintages, since "for over 40 years, Carlo Rossi wines have made good food taste even better."
And you would expect that they'd increase their 'public service' quotient (and advertising $$ generated) by 'offering' specific pairings for the Denny's, IHOP's & Applebee's of the world...what a great tie in!
