The best white wines to serve as an aperitif 

Sparkling wines are among the most popular aperitif wines, although many prefer still white wines due to their freshness, aromas and drinkability. If you love lighter, fruity and floral notes, opt for Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Lugana. If, on the other hand, you prefer more explosive aromas and aromatic notes of tropical fruit and spices, Sauvignon, Gewürztraminer and Malvasia wines are just what you want. 

Snacks for an aperitif 

It is known that a good aperitif depends both on the wine and on what it is paired with. If you have invited friends over and want to impress them with homemade finger food, try mini pizzas, sandwiches, stuffed olives, quiches and frittata. If, on the other hand, you don't feel like cooking and are looking for something quick and easy, in addition to taralli from Puglia and crisps, serve mozzarella, ham and melon skewers, soft focaccia bread or filled rolls.
