Enjoy an impromptu weekend afternoon of wine and appetizers with the neighbors. Don’t forget to match the weight of a wine with its corresponding dish. Perhaps an antipasti plate of green olives, cheeses, and cured meats like salami and prosciutto, or to make it a little more chic add steamed mussels or oysters on the half shell. Use caution when matching with cheese that it be mild like havarti, edam, and soft cheeses mixed with herbs. For dinner choose light-bodied meals like salads with crisp vegetables and chicken or delicate fish like sole or haddock, or add a touch of spice with Thai or Mexican dishes. Oh, and let us not forget rich chocolate! Serve chilled about 55 F.
