Favorite Picnic Party Recipes
Picnic wines should be light and refreshing, wine experts say. Good choices include:
-- Prosecco. This goes-with-anything Italian sparkler is crisp, fresh, lightly tart and a little dry.
-- Pinot Gris. Good with light meals, this wine (also called Pinot Grigio) has a light citrus flavor.
-- Dry Sauvignon Blanc or Blanc Fume. This is the best wine for a variety of foods.
-- Chenin Blanc. Fruity and refreshing, it's perfect for a light lunch or by itself.
-- Riesling. Serve this clean, fruity wine with fish, chicken, turkey or sausage.
-- Gewurztraminer. Spicy and aromatic, it goes with roast pork, ribs and cheese.
