Do You Have to Have Food With Your Wine?

Is Food Always Necessary With Wine?

On more than one occasion, I've had friends comment that they can't enjoy a glass of wine without a bite to accompany it. The right food, they say, highlights a good wine's complexity. While that might be true, I often settle back with a solo glass before or after a meal. Do you believe wine should only be served with something else?

There is never a bad time for wine!

I prefer ice water with meals, but sometimes enjoy wine by itself or with little bites beforehand.

I would say not always, although occasionally I feel like it's hard to enjoy a glass of really high alcohol wine, like a California Cabernet or Zinfandel, without some food to cut it.
