Many critics argue that it is more important to match wine with people rather than food as wine and food generally work well together and there are only a few combinations which really do not work.

Pairing wine and food is important and many combinations, not considered being "classic" will in fact work well so be adventurous and listen to your taste buds.
Mozzarella is a term for several kinds of Italian fresh cheeses that are made by using a spinning and cutting process. In Italian mozzare means "to cut" Mozzarella is usually served on the day that it is made as it doesn't keep much beyond 12 to 24 hours and is best with a sliced tomato and basil. Mozzarella was first mentioned in 1570 in a cookbook by Bartolomeo Scappi. Mozzarella is best enjoyed with a lesser-oaked Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc or a light-bodied Pinot Noir.
