It is on the list of favorite drinks in many countries, including Armenia. That is the reason why there are many and varied dishes compatible with wine in Armenian cuisine.
The fish variety is one of the most popular dishes. As a rule, white wine goes best with fish. It is even customary to say “Red wine with meat and white wine with fish”. However, red wine can also be combined very well with fish, it depends on the type of fish and, of course, the way of preparation.

Meat is also comparable to wine. If the meat is red, for example veal, then red wine can be served. This combination is even considered useful. Several studies have shown that red wine can actually help digest meat because it has a relatively high acidity that helps the stomach break down protein. It also helps the stomach remove potentially harmful substances contained in red meat. In Gata tavern you can enjoy delicious Armenian bumbar, tjvjik, adana and karahunj with red wine. White wine also goes very well with meat and even better with poultry. There are many delicious poultry dishes at Gata.
