Recommended wine: Sparkling Wine, Sparkling Rose
Angel Food Cake can be paired with Sparkling Wine and Sparkling rosé. A light and crisp sparkling rosé complements fluffy angel food cake - even more so if you're serving it with strawberries. Of course a sweet sparkling white wine will work too. The Laurent-Perrier La Cuvee Brut (3 Liter Bottle - Jeroboam) with a 5 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 400 dollars per bottle.
