Antipasto and Wine and Beer Pairing

Antipasto literally means ‘before the meal.

Basically it is an assortment of appetizers such as cured meats, cheese, olives, pickled vegetables and smoked fish.

To appreciate the cultural experience stick to everyday Italian Red, Whites and Rosés. The crowd pleasers being Pinot Grigio and Valpolicella.

You won’t go wrong with a sparkling wine, or wheat or light beer given the salty nature of Antipasto.
