Don’t know which wine to have with a pepperoni pizza? There’s an app for that — as well as websites and Twitter.
The number of ways to discover the most suitable wine for a particular dish can be as overwhelming as walking into a large wine shop.
More than a dozen apps claiming to be the equivalent of a sommelier in your pocket are available for iPhones and iPods. And there are others for the BlackBerry and other mobile devices.
But among the most popular is the Nat Decants Food & Wine Match. Wine blogger Natalie MacLean also provides the same information on her website (http://www.nataliemaclean.com).
If you want to find out which wine will go best with lamb vindaloo, MacLean, who has almost 400,000 wine and food pairings, recommends Shiraz for red or a white Chateauneuf-Du-Pape. She also suggests food pairings with beer, whiskies and cocktails.
