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.
Le Grand Courtage Rose Brut Bedazzled BottleBright aromas and flavors of fresh strawberry and raspberry combine with notes of lilac and violets. On the palate, a delicate balance of dryness and acidity lingers with flavors of wild berries and pomegranate alongside soft floral notes. This Brut Rosé complements a wide range of foods, from savory to sweet. Try it with spicy Asian dishes, risotto, BBQ, beef, lamb, duck, chicken, prosciutto, seafood, pizza, soft cheese (like brie or goat), cheesecake, crème brulée, strawberry shortcake and berry pie. Mix with fresh grapefruit juice for a refreshing brunch beverage, or add a float to a gin-based cocktail.The Blend: The Chardonnay provides depth and structure, while the Ugni Blanc offers a natural acidity and freshness. The light-bodied Gamay lends vibrant fruit expression and a smooth texture. Grapes are sourced from quality terroirs in France, such as Burgundy and Beaujolais.
