You’ve found the love of your life, now it’s time to celebrate! From margheritas to prosecco, ceviche to crostini, pairing the right drink to a food dish is key.

 

 

Below are some, entertaining tips and pairing/serving suggestions.  Adding a touch of DIY makes any party come to life.

 

Santa Margherita is a world-renowned Italian winery that produces a premium, top shelf wine. Pinto Grigio to Prosecco, Santa Margherita wines enrich their customer’s special occasions and add elegance to their lasting memories. Whether you want a Tuscan themed event or a tropical themed event, you are guaranteed to find the perfect wine for the occasion.

 

Party Ideas:

Ceviche Party:

 

A ceviche party is perfect if you are having a South American theme. Ceviche is a South American dish that consists of raw fish or seafood. However, other countries put their own spin on it. For this party, serve 3-4 types of ceviche (Caribbean, Mexican, Asian, Mediterranean, etc) and provide Prosecco and Pinot Grigio. If you are feeling extra creative, create your own signature cocktail using Prosecco or maybe make a Pinot Grigio sangria.

Crostini party:

Crostini’s bring the perfect taste of Italy to your Tuscan themed party. Savory pieces of toast are easy to assemble and you could even have you guests create their own! A simple ricotta and chopped fresh herbs or mascarpone with berries and honey crostini’s will have your guests feeling like they are in Italy. The possibilities are endless and your guests will have fun creating their own. Crostini’s are paired perfectly with Prosecco and Pinot Grigio.





Classic clambake party:

A clambake completes your beach themed party. Lobster, clams, mussels, and shrimp are essentials when having a clambake. A tip for having this type of party is to prep the food ahead of time. Put seafood in foil packets and place on the BBQ or a fire pit. You can even place them in a large pot on the stovetop. Whichever way you prefer, you are sure to bring the taste of the shore to your home. Serve with prosecco and pinot Grigio to enlighten your guest’s taste buds.


DIY ideas:


  • Using ribbon and charms, tie around stem of each glass with a different color ribbon or charm, so your guests don’t loose their glass.

  • Small potted herbs or succulents can be given to guests as a party favor. Place one at each setting and label guest name with paint marker.



  • Create garnishes, such as a wedge of pineapple or cube of cantaloupe, and place on toothpicks in a bowl. This will allow guests to garnish their own drinks and to be creative.

  • Purchase wine glass markers and allow guests to decorate their glass for identification. This is sure to bring out some fun!

anta Margherita’s Pinot Grigio is a dry white wine that consists of a straw yellow color.
The Santa Margherita Prosecco is a well-balanced, sparkling wine. It has a clean and satisfyingly fruity taste with a hint of rennet apples and peach blossom.



SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Excellent as an aperitif, and ideal with seafood salads or pasta and rice dishes based on fish and shellfish. Also perfect with white meats, boiled or grilled fish and soufflés.


Santa Margherita’s Chianti is a red wine that unfolds an aroma of flowers, fruit, spice and gunflint. 

 

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

 

Perfect match for very flavoursome dishes, such as juicy, strongly fragrant meat-based preparations or furred and feathered game of all kinds.
 

Whether you are planning your engagement party or your rehearsal dinner, these drink and food combinations are sure to get the party started. Santa Margherita’s wines help add the perfect touch to the theme of event.
