Sparkling Wine and Food Pairings for Summer Parties

The arrival of summer means more get-togethers, joyous evenings, and entertaining activities. In these situations, elegant and fine alcoholic beverages play an essential part. They can turn an ordinary get-together into a true celebration and make the meal a culinary masterpiece.

Summertime vigor

The unique flavors of sparkling wine, in particular, are cold and refreshing beverages that often help to beat the summer heat. Whether it's dessert or dinner, they both invigorate and improve the dish's flavor. Therefore, we'll talk about a few different alcoholic beverage options below that go great with summer dinners.

Italian sparkling wine Prosecco

One of the most beloved summertime options is prosecco sparkling winea well-known Italian beverage. Crisp acidity and delicate bubbles characterize the drink, which goes well with light, fresh dishes.

It pairs well with salty appetizers like prosciutto-wrapped melon or bruschetta, an Italian snack of tomatoes and basil.

You can have it with grilled seafood as a main meal. In this scenario, you can make different sparkling wine cocktails like Bellini or Aperol Spritz, or drink Prosecco separately.

Consider one of these Italian prosecco varieties for your upcoming dinner gathering:

  • ASTORIA "Butterfly" Prosecco DOC: A light-tasting, extra-dry sparkling wine with a subtle peach and melon aroma. It can be served with fish and appetizers.

  • ASTORIA "Butterfly Rose" Prosecco DOC: A pink sparkling wine with a sophisticated berry scent and crisp flavor notes. It goes well with pizza as well as appetizers. 

  • ASTORIA "Corderie" Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore DOCG: A nice fruity-smelling brut sparkling wine with a slightly acidic taste. It goes well with grilled seafood and appetizers alike.

These sparkling wine varieties are available at the Vino&Vino liquor store.


French sparkling wine


When paired with a variety of dishes, the French sparkling wine Champagne, with its rich and complex flavor notes, becomes the ideal accompaniment. This kind of beverage is well-known for having exquisite flavor notes and is therefore a preferred choice both domestically and internationally.

The key is that French sparkling wine embodies the long history of winemaking, making it a flexible beverage that goes well with many different types of food. For instance, the flavor notes of the drink are enhanced and its acidity is made more pleasant by cream cheeses and seafood like oysters and caviar.

  • JULES LAROSE Blanc de Blancs Brut: Golden sparkling wine with juicy apricot and white peach flavors can be mixed with veggies, fried fish, and light dishes.

  • JULES LAROSE Blanc de Blancs Demi-Sec: Golden sparkling wine, including Colombard and Chenin Blanc grape types. When you sip the beverage, you're struck by its refreshing quality and its apricot and white peach flavors. It goes well with light meals and appetizers.

 These types of sparkling wines can be sipped both with dishes and separately, as they are able to add a touch of celebration and sophistication to any gathering.

Armenia sparkling wine

Armenian sparkling wines also follow high winemaking standards and offer a great alternative to Italian and French wines. Given the multifaceted Armenian cuisine, the local sparkling wine can be paired with a wide variety of dishes, including dolma and khorovats (grilled meat). You can combine it with different salads to create a fresher combination.

KARAS Extra Brut is one of the Armenian sparkling wines, combined with fresh fruit and citrus notes. Due to its acidity, it conveys a refreshing sense and can be combined with appetizers, seafood, sushi, and fruit desserts.


"Fried dishes sometimes remind me of bubbles." Said one of the famous American sommeliers. A great way to describe the pairing of sparkling wines and fried meals.

Each sparkling wine has a unique composition and a special production procedure that defines its individuality. So, you can get your preferred version at a Vino&Vino liquor store or order online from the official Vino&Vino website.
