Next time you are invited to a gathering, be the life of the party and contribute a bottle of sparkling wine and some goodies to go with it. Sparkling wine is so versatile that practically anything pairs well with those nose-tickling bubbles.
Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut and Blanc De Noirs are a great selection for your party. They are neutral and not too dry, with creamy bubbles that pair well with sweet and salty flavor profiles. Gloria Ferrer is California’s most awarded sparkling wine house and has received over 500 gold medals and 50 90+ ratings in the last 5 years.
A beautiful sparkling wine pairing platter must evoke all senses. Here are my favorite Gloria Ferrer pairing picks that do just that:
Salty snacks such as buttery popcorn, Marcona almonds, salty pistachios olives and sea salt and vinegar Inka corn are great pairings.
Sweet flavors such as guava paste, dark chocolate, pears, cherries, black grapes, pomegranate arils and dates balance out the distinct flavors of both wines.
Strong and creamy cheeses such as blue cheese, sharp cheddar and brie bring together all distinct flavors. Of course, let’s not forget the sweet and salty crackers and buttery crostinis for a tasty crunch.
Building the perfect party platter is easy once you know the wine it will be paired with. You can find all ingredients in this platter at your local grocery store.
