Appetizer Pairing

Food: Deviled Eggs, Shrimp Cocktail, and Baked Brie, Rufled potato chips

With so many options for you and your loved ones to snack on, it is best to oVer a wine that can be best friends with any elegant hors d’oeuvres or bowl of snack food. Choose to start the day by popping some bubbly. Sparkling wine is for celebrations and dining. The pleasure a glass brings is only compounding by the two meetings as one. The acidity and bubbles will cleanse the palate between diVer- ent bites and have the bonus of acting as an aperitive.
