The Best Wines For A Dinner Party
Before sending out your invites for the dinner party you’re going to host, be sure to read over the guest list and make sure you’re including people that fit a theme or vibe that you’re trying to achieve for the evening. This can also come in handy when choosing the wine you’ll be serving that evening as well. For example, if you’re going to be having a more traditional Italian dinner, choose an Italian wine to pair alongside it. If you’re planning more of a Mediterranean themed meal, choose a white wine to pair with the dishes. Either way, be sure to purchase enough wine for the number of guests that you expect to be in attendance that evening. This will help to keep everyone happy throughout the night.
The Perfect Pairing
Italy meets Spain in a playful and unique Tempranillo; a soft, velvety rosé sparkling wine that pairs well with fish dishes and creamy sauces. Pronounced flavors of ripe raspberry, strawberry and lemon mingle with the fresh tones of white peach and fresh citrus in this fruity rose’, adding wonderful balance to any dish. Pair with sautéed shrimp topped with garlic butter and sprinkled with parsley.
Serve It Up
When purchasing wine for your dinner party, be sure to purchase a variety of different types of wine so that everyone will have a variety to choose from throughout the evening. You can also create a cheese plate to go along with the wine to give your guests something to snack on during the party as well. Serving a cheese plate gives your guests the opportunity to taste different cheeses and enjoy a drink without having to worry about having to refill their glass in between bites.
Set The Mood
Warm spiced wine is easy to make, and a great way to bring everyone together. This cocktail is perfect for the colder months of the year when everyone is spending more time indoors and is eager to enjoy a nice glass of wine. It’s best served hot so try pouring it into mugs instead of glasses so that each guest has their own mug and can stay warm throughout the night. You can even experiment with different flavors by adding cloves and cinnamon to the wine before heating it up to give it a more exotic flavor.
