Are soup and wine considered difficult to pair?
I've read that some people consider it difficult to pair soup with wine since both are liquids. People, for some reason, don't consider that appealing. Maybe it's my love of both wine and soup, but I don't think it's difficult at all. Here are a few tips for you...
Take into consideration the weight of the soup. for instance, heavier chowders and hearty stews pair well with robust wines while more delicate broths are better suited for lighter wines.
Lastly: try not to panic. If your choice doesn't fit well, try again. And serve lots of bread and crackers! It's not the end of the world.
