Hi there wine lovers! My name is Blaique Yvonnea, and I am an Oakland, Ca native! I am a Wine Consultant with Wine Shop at Home and I am beyond excited to share my love and passion for wine with all of you! When I first tasted wine it was love at first sip, but that's not likely for most people. My goal is to connect with you and guide you on which wines are best suited for you and your palate. There are endless wine types out there which can be overwhelming for some, but adventurous for me. Book your consultation with me today so that we can get your wine shipped by tomorrow.
FOOD & WINE
A great food and wine pairing creates a balance between the components of a dish and the characteristics of a wine. Remember, pairing is a funny thing, because every dish will have more than just one component. You might try to pair a wine with chicken… but it’s not JUST going to be chicken, is it? Of course not! It will have herbs or spices, a side dish of veggies, etc. There are many things to think about when pairing a dish, but in the end, you have to choose which part of the dish you want to emphasize and then match the wine to that element.
