Fingerfood for wine tastings and recipes for party snacks for wine
Delicious party snacks for the wine evening. Delicious snack recipes for quick finger food and hearty snacks for the living room buffet make the next wine tasting a success.
Anyone inviting for a glass or two of wine should by no means be stingy with two things during the wine tasting: water and white bread. Flavor-neutral, non-carbonated tap water is perfect for experiencing the aromas of the wine. White bread is a good base for the stomach. It also neutralizes the taste in case you offer different wines and want to taste them at a wine tasting.
Baguette or ciabatta bread are best for this. Additional flavorful ingredients such as:
- or garlic
should be avoided if possible. A first-class olive oil (extra virgin, virgin) and unsalted butter are a good addition to pastries. Salt also reduces the taste experience of the wines. This should definitely be avoided. At least that’s the basics of wine tasting.

The dough can then be rolled or folded as desired. Thin slices are cut from rolls, which are then placed on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Cakes, boats or rolls are made according to the same principle and then baked in the oven at around 180-200 ° C for about 10-15 minutes. Enjoy the filled dumplings!

The cheese platter, the delicious finger food for the party
Pickled goat cheese, blue cheese and cheddar are a hit at every party. You will learn later how to arrange and decorate a cheese platter. Mountain cheese or hard cheese such as Parmesan are particularly tasty fixtures for the cheese buffet at every party. But you can also make cheese snacks yourself quickly and easily a few days in advance.
The nibbles for wine are easy to prepare:
- Cheese Pops: Cut any cheese into pieces approx. 1x1cm and let dry for about 48 hours. The water should have evaporated and the cheese should be hard. A wire shelf but also two layers of kitchen roll are ideal for this. Then pop it up in the microwave. Alternatively, 2 minutes in an oven preheated to 200 ° C is sufficient.
Parmesan chips: Mix the breadcrumbs with grated Percorino cheese or Parmesan. Optionally add pepper and chilli to season. Briefly toast in a hot pan without fat until the cheese melts. Alternatively, this also works in a preheated oven for a few minutes at 200 ° C. Simply distribute the mixture on some baking paper and let it roast until crispy. Then let it cool and break into small pieces.
- Cheese sticks: Work 200g flour, 100g sour cream, 100g liquid butter, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 30g grated cheese into a dough. Press the dough flat and cut off strips about 2cm wide with a knife. The length can be varied. In this way, small or longer sticks can be produced. Mix 1 egg with 60g grated cheese and spread the mixture evenly on the surface of all sticks. Place in the oven preheated to 200 ° C (top / bottom heat) for about 10-15 minutes and remove when browned.
Which wine goes well with the cheese platter?

Noble rot cheese: sweet, light dessert wines (Vin Santo, ice wine, Trockenbeerenauslese). No red wine with the blue cheese.
Soft cheese (goat cheese / sheep cheese): dry fruity white wines (Sauvignon blanc, Riesling, Pinot Gris)
White mold cheese (Camembert, Brie): Young, not too tannic red wines. With sparkling aromatic white wines or fruity rosé you have come to the right place.
Rotkulturkäse (Munster): Strong red wines but also Gewürztraminer, beer is almost better here!
Hard cheese, young: fruity red or white wines.
Hard cheese, old: strong red wines stored in barriques. The stronger the cheese, the stronger the wine.
Here you can find our dessert wines to go with cheese and nuts.
Fruit juice (apple juice, pear juice) and beer go better than wine. If you want to be on the safe side, there is sparkling wine (sparkling wine) or sparkling fruitwine (cider). As a non-alcoholic alternative, syrups are a good choice to dilute. These are available in different flavors.
Decoration tips for cheese platters:
- Pomegranate seeds
- fresh, quartered figs
- Medjool dates
- roasted pine nuts
- caramelized walnuts
Wine selection for the party
In addition to white wine, red wine and rose wine, there is sparkling wine, dessert wine, port wine, sherry and ice wine. In addition, cider, fruit wine, berry wine and honey wine. Not all wine is created equal and there are striking differences between the individual grape varieties (white grapes and blue grapes) and the way the wines are made (table wine, dessert wine, sparkling wine). Therefore, every wine needs a suitable culinary companion that perfectly complements or emphasizes its taste.
Play it safe: with sparkling wine and rose, they shine on almost every occasion and can serve almost any combination of dishes. Snacks to go with red wine: a good red wine goes best with salami, chorizo, pastrami or with a Vesper platter. Young, acidic red wines without tannin are better served with snacks. Heavy red wines rich in tannins are more likely to be enjoyed after eating. In this way, the food does not distort the taste of red wine and vice versa.
