Food pairing and wine
While this is a wide topic and a lot has to be considered when pairing food and wine. The two most basic tips include:

- A wine should have higher acidity than the food it’s matched with otherwise it will taste flabby.
Calorie, Carbohydrates and sugar content
They have both the same carbohydrates content, though white wine does promise a few calories per glass. In terms of sugar content red wine weighs in as the lighter vintage with 0.9 grams to 3.8 grams in white wine of sugar per 5 ounce of sugar. If you’re looking to cut sugar from your diet red wine will be a better bet. Sugar content is directly proportional to sweetness i.e. the sweeter it is the more sugar content it contains.
