A good steak without wine – neither evolution than revolution

Exceptional quality and exceptional dish requires satellite, for example – wine. Therefore, we recommend these two elements together. Wine and beef combination – is a separate field of science in which the theoretical knowledge sommelier it is not so important than to many years of experience working shoulder to shoulder with our chef. Different types of beef, require a different wine – be it in the equation x discovering the perfect combination. Then y – different spices, marinades and sauces, and z – a method of cooking. Only a proper understanding of the characteristics of these unknowns can be solved by the perfect taste of the equation.
