Originally, a landmark literally meant a geographic feature used by explorers and others to find their way back or through an area. Now, a landmark includes anything that is easily recognizable, such as a monument or a building, or any other spot to designate places that might be of interest to tourists.

Barina Craft's home bar site. This chart was compiled from many other food and wine pairing charts to provide a quick reference and ongoing resource for your home bar's wine rack or cellar. The commonly recommended complementary matches from a number of different sommelier guides, wine tasting experts, winery suggestions and industry publications were tabulated yielding a kind of consensus grouping of lists.
