This is an excellent site, free, for helping plan wine/food pairings - along with a lot of related stuff. She is highly regarded in both worlds. I am astounded by the changes in grapes, wines, and wineries around the world - if you haven't tried 'something' different this could be an excellent source to help ya!

Wino,

What exists beyond "red if it's winter, white if it's summer" ?

The growth of new wines and the number of wineries in just the USA, not to mention world-wide, is astounding! In the past 8 years, the number of wineries has increased about 50% from 6,400 to 9,000+ https://www.statista.com/statistics/259353/number-of-wineries-in-the-us/

To see the number of current wineries by state click here: https://www.statista.com/statistics/259365/number-of-wineries-in-the-us-by-state/ and now all states have wineries!! Even Alaska has at least 8 :!: :!: :roll: https://www.statista.com/statistics/259365/number-of-wineries-in-the-us-by-state/

In addition, new grapes suitable for wine are being developed. I was slapped upside my noggin on this just last week while on Vancouver Island, north of Victoria, where I tasted two excellent whites: Sauvignette, Petite Milo. Cute story re: Petite Milo – it’s named after a revered friend, Milo, who is highly regarded in the local wine scene and short in stature :roll: :lol: :!: Both were created by hybridization within the past 10 years :!:

If the consumer can find a knowledgeable wine store or takes time to visit wineries, there is an incredible new experience beyond the standards – like all things in our ‘foody’ world.

Fuzzy, as for your dilemma, tongue in cheek though it may be, there are all of the sparkling variations from around the world (start with prosecco), ‘fruit’ based beers (probably wine wannabes), wine-based mixes (think sangria, etc.), and onward. The main point of my initial link to the famed wine writer is that it's free (paid subscription available), knowledgeable, and free :lol: :!:
