Laid-Back Patio Bites and Wine Pairings

Warm days are here again! Warm days eventually turn into lovely afternoons, perfect for patio snacks paired with our favorite wines.

Here are a few of our favorite patio-perfect bites with wines to pair:

Simple Charcuterie and Cheese Spread

Visit the cheese section of your local favorite cheese shop, using our tips for setting up the best cheese plate ever. Then visit the cured meat section of the store. Start with a hard salami, something a little more delicate, like sliced procuitto, and then get creative with a decadent pâté

Pair with two or a few: Middle Sister Goodie Two-Shoes Pinot Noir, Middle Sister Sweet & Sassy Moscato, Middle Sister Drama Queen Pinot Grigio, Middle Sister Rebel Red Blend.

Fresh Fruit “Salsa”

Put a spin on the traditional tomato salsa with a new version full of fresh fruit and herbs. Try some of our favorites like Strawberry Salsa, Avocado and Tropical Fruit Salsa, and Mango Salsa. Serve with a side of cinnamon sugar  pita chips or lightly salted tortilla chips.

Pair with a wine on the sweeter side, like Middle Sister Sweet & Sassy Moscato.

Grilled Cheese for Grown Ups

Grilled Cheese Bites

Because it is still Grilled Cheese Month, we wouldn’t dare leave out this savory snack. Cook up one or two delicious grilled cheese recipes, remove the crust and cut into bite-sized snackable pieces.

Remember these wine and grilled cheese pairing basics:
