How to "Pear" Wines (pun intended)?!

With this Blog, we're going to discuss a topic that is totally confusing to me..."How to Pear Wines"!
OK, raise your hands if you are as confused as me. Yep, just as I thought, we are all in the same boat! Let's step into the Wine Cave and mull (pun intended) this one over. To help us out, I invited a "Wine Expert" (Billy).
It appears that the first step is to find out all that we can about "Pears", so we can determine what pears have to do with wines. Billy I recognise your raised hand but, please hold your questions and/or comments until the end of our discussion. Without a doubt, pears are yummy! Mostly, pears are yellow, but they, also, come in colors of 'green and red'. They are closely related to America's #1 fruit...Apples and rank as the #2 fruit. Today, there are more than 3,000 known varities of pears in the world. Most of the pear production in the U.S.A. comes from the states in the Northwest. Well, there's a lot more good stuff about pears out there, but you get the idea. Pears are a fabulous fruit and, as Homer said,..."the Gift of the Gods". Billy, there's no need to jump up and down, I'll address your question in just a moment.
Now that we've garnered all of these wonderful facts about pears, we need to figure out how this relates to our red and white wines. The "Experts" (like Billy) keep telling us that a red wine 'Pears" with this type of food and a white wine 'Pears' with another type of food. Personally, I see no reason why you can't enjoy 'Pears' with All wines. The color of the wine (or the pear) should make no difference.

Ok, Billy, I'm ready for your question. Billy, where are you? Has anyone seen our wine expert, Billy? Oh, darn it, Billy had to leave. He did, however, leave us a note. Let's read what Billy wrote..."A Pair of Pears is NOT a Pare"! Whoa, that's really deep! It's easy to understand why we need wine experts! I do wish, however, that Billy would have told us exactly which pears go best with which type of wine. Does a semi-ripe pear go best with a Rose' type wine? Maybe, next time, Billy will be able to stay a little longer. In the meantime, I guess that us (common folks) will just have to continue to enjoy our (unfiltered) wine with our usual (common folks) tastes and simple (common folks)..."GUSTO"!
