Tandoor Chef's guide to pairing wine and beer with authentic Indian cuisine. @TandoorChef

Here are three reasons you may not be enjoying your wine the way you should be. And while you are at it check out Tandor Chef's wine and beer pairing tool to help you choose the best compliment to our restaurant quality authentic Indian cuisine.

You think red wine tastes too dry.
If you're a white wine drinker, don't give up on red wine too easily! There are a few options you might want to consider pairing with your dinner tonight. High tannin content is often what makes a red wine come across as too dry for the white wine drinker, so give a dry Rosé, or something softer like Pinot Noir, Grenache, Barbera, or Gamay a taste!

You think wine is simply red or white.
You may know the basic differences between a red and a white, but it’s also important to learn about all of the types of wine and their different varietals. Don’t be afraid to explore everything from Chardonnay to Viognier and Cabernet Sauvignon to Zinfandel!

You think wine has one note.
While all wine is stored at the same temperature, reds and whites should be enjoyed at different temperatures. Oftentimes, white wine is served at too cold a temperature, causing it to be flavorless, and red wine is served at too warm a temperature, causing it to taste alcoholic. A good rule of thumb is to note that white wines should be chilled before drinking and red wines should be have time to rise in temperature before serving!
