The Best Snacks with Prosecco

Roasted salted nuts
Toasted pumpkin seeds
Asian-inspired trail mix (with a little spice!)
You might be wondering, “What cheese goes with Prosecco?” Try something creamy and rich, like triple-crème cheeses. Brie and Camembert are also great choices.
Irresistible Appetizers with Prosecco
You might enjoy serving Prosecco as an aperitif at the beginning of your party. It is the perfect wine to hand to your guests as they arrive. Of course, they’ll need something to nibble on as they sip their wine, so serve one of these delicious appetizers with Prosecco. You'll notice that a lot of these options are salty and rich in umami flavor, and that's because those are perfect complements for sparkling wine.
