Recommended wine: Sparkling Wine, Sparkling Rose
Sparkling Wine and Sparkling rosé are my top picks for Antipasti. If you're serving a selection of appetizers, you can't go wrong with these. Both are very food friendly and complement a variety of flavors. One wine you could try is Le Grand Courtage rosé Brut Bedazzled Bottle. It has 4.7 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 40 dollars.
