Planning Out An Italian Menu To Complement An Italian Wine Gift Basket

Our wine gift basket collection has been delighting many a customer of ours, and for good reason – for centuries, wine has complemented many of the most memorable dinners and gatherings, and is the perfect “cheers-ing” beverage to toast to health, wealth, and happiness! Our Italian Wine Gift Basket selections feature wines that will quench your palate, and when combined with a hearty Italian menu, will complement you and your guests’ hungry stomachs, too!

Crostini is a so simple, but so gourmet Italian appetizer. Pick up a baguette at your local grocery store, and cut it into one inch thick slices. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Brush each slice with olive oil, a slice of mozzarella cheese, and a thin tomato slice. Bake for about ten minutes, but keep a very close eye on it. Pair it with a wine from our Italian Wine Gift Basket collection!           

Main Course
For the main course, we suggest three-cheese ravioli with baby spinach, in a “spicy” Italian pasta sauce. This is a very common recipe that you can research online, and prepare the ravioli from scratch, or purchase at your grocery store. For a side, pair it with a blend of creamy corn (corn and light cream), sweet peas, shallots, red pepper, olive oil, and thyme. Choose an Italian Wine Gift Basket with Cabernet Sauvignon to really complete this dish.

Can any dessert top off a delicious Italian meal other than tiramisu? Nope! Prepare your own favorite version of tiramisu, or pick it up pre-made at the grocery store or local bakery.

Finish dinner off with a demitasse cup filled with your favorite espresso!

An Italian Wine Gift Basket is the perfect addition to your Italian dinner for two, or Italian dinner party! Attending an Italian dinner? Bring a so-wonderful Italian Wine Gift Basket with you – or send it to the dinner host a day or two in advance to really “wow” and thank him or her for their efforts.
