The Perfect Wine and Appetizer Pairings For Every Party

When it comes to wine and appetizers there are many options out there and it can feel overwhelming to know which to serve to ensure all of your guests will be pleased. Knowing the perfect combination will have you feeling like a star and have your party guests raving about your party for years to come! 

We found all the people-pleasing pairings of wines and appetizers that are bound to make everyone’s tastebuds go wild! 

The First Step…

is the wine. There are many different wines, but when you know a little bit about each type of wine then you can better prepare the food to go with it. Many people make the easily avoided mistake of putting too many appetizers out with the wrong colour of the wine. 

White Wines

Pinot Grigio is a light and refreshing wine that can bring out the sweetness in food and is best paired with appetizers like artichoke and spinach dip, mozzarella and brie cheeses, or smoked meats. We suggest trying Pinot Grigio with this baked bean and artichoke dip. 

Chardonnay is known for it’s creamy and light aftertaste which is why this type of wine is best paired with chicken quesadillas or grilled marinated shrimp

Riesling is the perfect kind of wine to match anyone’s tastes buds. We like to pair this sweet choice with chips and homemade guacamole, dumplings, or shrimp tacos to give a perfect balance of sweet and salty. 

Moscato is for all the sweet tooth’s in your house. These wines are deliciously sweet and pair well with poached pears in honey, ginger and cinnamon syrup.

Red Wines

Shiraz is a wine that ranges from spicy to fruity or bold. This wine is ideal to pair with appetizers like a charcuterie plate because it will play nicely with the salt and subtle flavours in the cheese and meats.

Pinot Noir is a rich bouquet of flavours and we suggest pairing it with a simple snack plate with crackers, goat cheeses, pears and salami.

Merlot is a lush wine with a jam-like taste and goes well with mussels or sweet and sour chicken balls.
Don’t forget when the party is over, East Hills Bottle Depot, is the friendliest place to return your empty wine bottles!
