For some, tapas are an acquired taste, as they generally involve very strong flavours. So – which wines do people tend to enjoy with these tasty Spanish dishes?
Pairing wine with food in a satisfying manner is not an easy task. Generally, it takes a practiced palate to understand which flavours will work best with others.

However, if this is indeed your task, there is plenty of information online, including recommendations from experts, that should help you to make more specific decisions.
