How Natural Flavors Can Enhance Food & Wine Pairings

As the famous Julia Child once said, “Wine is meant to be with food—that’s the point of it!”

As a large or small winemaker in an industry that continues to thrive in many ways, your craft remains rooted in tradition and the classic sight, smell, and taste of your house flavors.

The path to differentiation, of course, is then blazed by curiosity, experimentation, and premium, naturally-sourced wine flavoring extracts.

How do you deliver a signature touch to your flavors?

Food for Thought…When It Comes to Wine…

A study by Sonoma State University on American wine consumer preferences and behaviors noted that a trend is emerging.

Previously, most individuals and families did not enjoy wine with meals, or even drink wine on a daily basis.

In 2019 and beyond, wine will be viewed less as a special occasion cocktail or endcap dessert and become a more integral component to a meal.1

This trend is based largely on the practice of moderation and a more widely acknowledged fact that food and wine elements can interact and transform one another for the better.

Just as your signature flavors are mostly a matter of personal preference, food and wine pairings are – of course – a matter of individual taste. There is certainly no right or wrong way to pair, despite certain myths, stereotypes, and assertions.

By knowing this trend, the ball is now in your court to make the most of this new consumer direction.


Would a Fruit Flavoring for Wine Enrich the Overall Taste of Your Drink?

As you’re slowly sipping your wines in the name of dedicated quality assurance, we can only imagine how good they taste, how sweet they smell, and how smooth they go down.

With innovation never far from your immediate thoughts, have you ever wondered if wine flavoring additives would help to achieve a slightly stronger flavor? A better balance? Or, perhaps, give your wine a subtle flavor boost in any direction?

Wine flavoring extracts can deliver on all fronts and help you achieve the exact flavor or stability you desire.


The Success of Your End Product Relies on High-Quality, Naturally Sourced Extracts

Above all, your finished corked bottle of wine depends on the quality and type of grape you use. Closely following, however; is your choice of wine flavoring extracts – when you choose to use them.

Bear in mind that not all wine flavoring additives are created the same. Certain wine flavoring extracts are healthier to consume and better for your wine application.

Any wine flavoring extract that is sourced from pure, natural products, and meticulously weighed to deliver incredible taste and aroma, can truly elevate your end product.


Tailoring Your Wines to Consumers’ Desires & Better Food Pairings

With wine becoming more a focal, included mealtime element, fruit flavoring for wine can help you make your wines more accessible and enjoyable. Indeed, they can help increase the palatability of wines (for people’s varying taste preferences) and the types of foods that they will naturally coalesce with.

For many, eating is a pleasurable experience; as is drinking wine. But, as a winemaker, you aren’t just trying to appeal to the steak lovers or the chicken lovers anymore.

Today’s trend is about appealing to individuals who already enjoy variety in their meals but are now looking for variety and pairing ease in their wines.
