As the evening progressed, I was getting more and more interested to know more about food and wine, the wines that goes with, its ranges, its kind, the grapes used, its process, all this was making me curious inspite of being a non-alcoholic person.

We as a group of friends started our evening with some wine and food. Never knew there was logic and science behind the food and the wine which goes with it.
