A savvy food and wine appetizer match that features goat cheese
The combination of rich ingredients in this arugula goat cheese tart with rich dough, and both tart and sweet ingredients makes for a trickier pairing, but well-balanced white wine with a little acidity will pair wonderfully. Think higher acid Oregon Chardonnay, crisp Sauvignon Blanc, or even Pinot Gris. To hit a home run, pair with a Chardonnay-based sparkling wine.
An arugula goat cheese tart is a terrific addition to any brunch or light lunch. Plan to make this for the next brunch you host. It also makes an easy appetizer for dinner or a summer party. One of the best things about this tart isn’t just the great summer flavors, but it tastes just as good at room temperature or warm. A bubbly Chardonnay will help to cleanse the palate, and what better way to prepare your guests to move on to the next course?
