This chart was compiled from many other food and wine pairing charts to
provide a quick reference and ongoing resource for your home bar's wine
rack or cellar.  The commonly recommended complementary matches
from a number of different sommelier guides, wine tasting experts, winery
suggestions and industry publications were tabulated yielding a kind of
consensus grouping of lists.

Informal observations suggested much more commonality and agreement
on the wine pairings advocated at the ends of the taste spectrum.  For this
narrow list of choices, it was Chardonnay and Zinfandel, which illustrates
how wine is very much an individual experience.  Use this as a guide for
ideas and experiment to find favorites matching your palate.  Red wines
are selected in the shaded columns and white wines listed in the others.
