You don’t need a special holiday as a reason to host a wine tasting party. However, when you’re busy with work, family, and planning a party, sometimes you don’t feel like going through the trouble of creating dishes that pair well with the wines you’re serving. And hey, that’s okay! There are PLENTY of easy appetizers you can make without slaving in the kitchen all day!
Delicious and Easy Appetizers for a Wine Tasting Party
The only thing better than a party is the food. Am I right?! We have compiled a list of the best appetizers for your wine tasting party. Check them out!
Slow The Cook Down
Sure, you can buy feta already marinated at most deli counters, but the best thing about this recipe is you can choose your own flavoring! And this recipe is so easy, you just gotta make sure you have at least 4 hours to set and forget!
It doesn’t get much easier than throwing all of your ingredients into a food processor/blender and being done. This appetizer recipe calls for olives from Spain, but great news: Most olives you find in the US are imported from there.
Lady and the Blog
This crostini is simple and SO delicious! Good luck stopping me from eating this on non-wine party days!
The Welcoming Table
Is it really a wine party if you don’t have some kind of a charcuterie board on the table? (Trick question, the answer is a resounding “NOPE!”) This one has a little bit of everything, and I love versatility.
Fun Money Mom
It doesn’t get much easier than buying a box of crackers and topping them with some cheese and berries. You’ll have enough of these in no time for your entire party!
This appetizer recipe combines two of my favorite things: meatballs and spice. Garnish is optional, and who has time for that anyway?!
These cheese crisps are super simple to whip up, and as an added bonus they’re low carb for your keto friends! These go well with some hummus.
Coming in with another low carb/keto friendly appetizer! This one is so simple to make, it barely takes any kitchen tools, so there’s the added bonus of minimal cleanup!
Here’s a super yum appetizer for your vegan friends. The cups keep for up to 3 months in the freezer, so you can have them ready for anything last minute!
Dancing Through The Rain
I think my favorite aspect of most of these appetizers, is not only are they easy to make, but they’re easy on your wallet too. Make sure you don’t cut these up too soon or your apples will turn!
Having Fun Saving
Where was this recipe when I was a kid, mom?! Seriously, I would have never thought of this! I’d personally cut it into smaller bits for finger-food size appetizers!
I may be biased, but this recipe is probably my favorite. Even when I was too young to drink wine at parties, I was always there for the cheese!
My Kitchen Love
If your go-to easy appetizer doesn’t involve some kind of lunch meat, are you even doing it right? Another easy and delicious go-to for your wine party will be these!
Bunnys Warm Oven
This dip is SO good and easy to make. Serve with crackers and a low-carb option for your keto friends!
Whole Lotta Yum
I eat these crisps with so many different things. They would be great for your room temperature onion dip!
Moms Who Save
These stuffed mushrooms are incredibly easy to make, and this recipe even has a vegan option! The best part is, they’re good whether you’re having wine or not, so bring them out for everything and you’ll be a party favorite!
My Kitchen Love
This appetizer will make it appear as though you spent all day in the kitchen when you did anything but. The most time consuming aspect is going to be rolling out the pastry.
What’s better than an appetizer tray? A Mamma Mia!-themed tray of course!
The Welcoming Table
Another crowd favorite at wine parties is hummus. It’s tasty and vegan, so all of your friends will be able to enjoy!
