The Wines of Mas de Daumas Gassac and Food Pairings

16 Dec

This post lists the Mas de Daumas Gassac wines and food pairings referred to in the previous post. We love to pair wines and foods and to offer the experience to our friends and customers. It’s a lot of fun, and that’s how one develops their personal knowledge. While it’s fun to share wine and food experiences, at the same time it’s very individual…no right or wrong. There’s no substitute for having your own experience base.  We regularly have wine and food pairings like the one listed below where you can form your own opinions about wines, foods and how well they pair.
