Keeping it Casual: Simple Ideas for Entertaining at Home
(NewsUSA) – With the arrival of warmer weather and longer days come many wonderful reasons to gather with family and friends. From graduations to weddings, this is a season of celebrations — big and small.
Entertaining at home is a lovely way to bring people together. Whether you are toasting newlyweds or hosting a backyard barbecue, treat guests to simple food and fruit-forward, approachable wine. Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi wines fulfill the late Mondavi’s vision of putting great California wine on every table.
To start your next event off on an elegant and delicious note, offer guests Prosciutto and Goat Cheese Roulades (recipe follows) paired with Woodbridge Chardonnay. The lushness of the wine perfectly complements the lightly salty tang of the roulades.
Depending on the occasion, you may want to offer guests a choice of white or red wine. Whites should be served slightly chilled but not cold. Red wine shouldn’t be chilled, but be careful it hasn’t been allowed to get too hot. A 750 ml bottle contains about five glasses of wine, and guests typically have about two glasses each. For casual entertaining, pairing wine with food should be fun. If you’re not sure about what wine pairs with a dish, serve a wine that you enjoy drinking, and you won’t go wrong.
