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 Larmandier-Bernier Latitude Extra Brut. It has 4.8 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 55 dollars.

Longitude is 60% base wine from the 2009 vintage fermented in stainless steel & 40% reserve wine from foudre & neutral oak. 100% Chardonnay aged on the lees for over two years and a 4gr/l dosage.
