This is how to put together a high wine

Not long after the high tea became a huge success, the high wine followed in its wake. Because how nice it is to enjoy a few glasses of wine during the day with some nice snacks next to it. High win can of course be done at one of the many bars and restaurants that offer this, but you can also organize it very easily at home.

The wines

A high wine is all about the wines, so think in terms of the wine. What wines do you want to serve? Have no idea where to start?

Then buying wine can become quite difficult. Think of a theme. Go for wines from a particular country, just choose all kinds of different wines from a particular grape variety or focus on a specific region. Would you like to go for Austrian wines for example??

Choose for example Grüner Veltliner, Zweigelt, Welschriesling and Blaufränkisch. Wines are also made from international grape varieties such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

The snacks

Only once you have chosen the wines can you start focusing on the appetizers. Of course you want the snacks to match the wines a little. It is important to mix flavors and characteristics a bit. If it is a wine with quite a bit of acidity, then it is okay to have acidity in the dish as well. If the dish is a bit creamy, for example because of a (butter) sauce, then the wine may also have a little fat.

Choose for example a white wine with a little bit of wood maturation. Chardonnay wines from Burgundy often have a nice body, but also have enough fresh acidity to be able to handle these kinds of snacks. A sparkling wine such as cava goes well with fat tapas.

A bubble like this also looks festive on the table.


If you are not a wine connoisseur and never have inspiration for appetizers so quickly? Then buying wine online often offers a solution anyway. The advantage, of course, is that you can do this from the comfort of your armchair. But another advantage is all the information about the wines that you can often already find on the website. For example, wine websites often already include tasting notes with the wines, so you can read exactly what wine to expect in your glass.

In addition, food suggestions are often included. Does it say pasta bolognese?? Then you know you can make tasty meatballs in tomato sauce as a snack.

Super convenient anyway?
