If you’re a food lover, you surely love “small plates” dining.
Inspired by the tapas bars of Spain and the wine bars of Venice, small plates dining is a wonderful way to share a meal with friends. It offers something for everyone.
But what about the wine pairing?
In Venice, where small plates bars are known as cicchetterie (chee-keht-teh-REE-eh) or bacari (BAH-kah-ree), the canonical pairing is — YES, you guessed it! — Prosecco.
And there’s a great reason for that.
Small plates tend to be on the saltier side and Prosecco, with its freshness and mineral flavor, is an ideal match.
Prosecco always has restrained alcohol content and that’s perfect when you’re eating a lot of different kinds of salty foods.
And aside from a charbroiled steak, Prosecco goes great with nearly anything, making it a wonderful wine to share with friends in a small plates restaurant.
Next time you visit your favourite small plates restaurant, try a bottle of La Gioiosa Prosecco. You’ll thank us!
