Have you ever walked through a museum and seen ancient depictions of parties and feasts?
Well, we have and we have always been drawn in by how early the pairing of wine and cheese was depicted. The first signs of commercialization for the pairings was in the 1600s by British Merchants. They would “buy on an apple an sell on cheese.” Wine and cheese were a combination made in the heavens according to many old philosophers. Today they share that it is because “mouthfeel” refers to the way food actually feels in your mouth. More astringent foods alternated with more of a creamy texture often creates a pleasant taste combination. The balance is what has to be right to make the pairing ideal. Centuries ago this was determined and this same type of combination has to exist in our lives today.
Moving away from flavor but assessing the principles of this pairing, astringent is an interesting use of a word. When aligning this word with the real estate experience it is applicable.
