vintage 60's wine pairing

This table and glossary from the 1963 classic "Favorite Recipes of California Winemakers" which is apparently still available at Ebay and Barnes & Noble...
The following pic has what was then the most current info on wine pairing suggestions - note the portion that I've highlighted in green;
"*Most people prefer the combinations shown in the right-hand column. But the "correct" wine is the one YOU like best."...

Quite practical...and much simpler than most people present it these days.
One of the reasons it worked was it was constructed in a generalized format, and didn't "preach"...

That vintage poster is awesome! Nice find! Drink what you like should be at the top of every wine list and on the lips of every sommelier.
