Idea Center - Pairings

Punch up, kick up, lift up, twist up, and wake up your palette with priceless tips, parings and antipasti platings from the Mezzetta Idea Center. May our gallery of inspiration bring you never-ending culinary happiness.

Mezzetta antipasto and olives add the right amount of flavor, acidity, and salt for the perfect balance to wine and cheese. For spicier olives, you’ll want to pair with milder, fruiter dry wines such as Pinot Grigio, Pinot Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc and young, fresh un-aged cheeses like goat cheese, mozzarella and ricotta. For milder and meatier olives such as ones stuffed with cheese or garlic, we recommend bolder reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Zinfandel paired with dry, aged cheese.
