These blackberry and whipped goat cheese crostini are a delicious pairing with Clos du Bois Chardonnay. You’ll love this simple appetizer for your next summer get-together!
This season is all about celebrating with friends and family! When the weather warms up, we love to have impromptu gatherings with friends and neighbors. We pop open a bottle of Clos du Bois wine and serve it alongside simple appetizers made with fresh, seasonal ingredients.
These blackberry and whipped goat cheese crostini have made an appearance at a few parties we’ve had so far this summer, and they have been a hit every time. I just knew I had to share the recipe with you!
Are you familiar with crostini? Similar to bruschetta, it’s essentially toasted slices of baguette that are topped with sweet or savory fare, and offer a little bite of flavor that goes perfectly with a glass of wine. I even soaked the blackberries in wine, to add a subtle hint of the Chardonnay.
We love to do wine and apps parties with close friends. It’s easy and casual, and feels just right for summer.
I was excited to debut this new, elegant packaging from Clos du Bois. Love that pretty new label! Tell me I’m not the only person who is drawn to wine labels? This one says fresh and chic to me.
This week, I picked up our stand-by– the Clos du Bois Chardonnay and also the Clos du Bois Pinot Grigio to pair with the crostini.
My friends and I love a chilled glass of white wine in the summer! Some Clos du Bois Chardonnay with a seasonal appetizer is just what we want when the weather gets hot.
Also, simple appetizers are easy to whip up, and keep the hostess out of the kitchen. Summer is for catching up with friends, and this recipe comes together in minutes, so you can get back to your party.
Enjoy the season… open up a bottle of Clos du Bois Chardonnay and pass around the apps!
