red-wine-barrelPairing wine and food is kind of like an art. Some people are very diligent about what to serve with a particular type of wine while others really have no clue. There are some snacks that can be clumped into the universal category of wine pairing–meaning, they go with just about any wine and taste great. Here are some of the best snacks that go well with wine:

Likely the most obvious snack, chocolate goes with just about anything, and tastes great with wine. It’s one of the sweetest wine pairings. Dark chocolate is probably the best choice of chocolate, and it goes wonderfully with white or red wine. A fill chocolate candy or truffle goes better with a dry wine. Chilled Moscato goes wonderfully with a chocolate treat, like cookies, cake or brownies.

Choose from a variety of berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries) to match with your wine, or simple plop them in the glass–makes for a tastey beverage.

You’ve probably heard this one before. It’s the most classic pairing. Cubed cheeses with toothpicks are a huge thing at dinner parties, especially with a glass of wine in hand. All different types of cheese go well with wine, it’s only a matter of determining which combination works best.

Hummus is not only delicious by itself, it’s also great with a red wine. The hearty fullness of the treat goes great with wine, and it’s perfect for dinner parties to keep the hunger stalled until dinner. You can serve with vegetables or pita bread.

Who would’ve thought grapes and wine? It’s a delicious, healthy snack. And of course, most wine comes from grapes, so why wouldn’t it make sense to pair the two? Sour green grapes go well with a white wine, while richer, dark purple grapes go with red and a darker vareity of wines.
