Age Determines Preference to Drink Wine Alone or With Food

Do You Prefer to Drink Wine Alone or With Food?

Does wine need anything more than a glass? The answer, it appears, might depend on your age. In his latest piece, New York Times wine columnist Eric Asimov addresses the surprising statistic that younger wine consumers are more likely to consume wine alone and without food than their older counterparts. "My first impulse was dismay," he writes. "It's not that I feel doctrinaire about drinking wine with food. I just think it's better that way. For that matter, I prefer food with wine." Are you happy with a glass of vino on its own, or are you inclined to have provisions alongside it? As you grow older, do you find your preferences changing?
