For those of you who like to have starters with your meal, but want to make them ahead or just make a quick platter; here are a few of my suggestions. I love this recipe for Spinach and Artichoke Pinwheels because you can make it ahead and it is tasty http://www.mykitchenvault.com/blog.php?id=87. I like to pair it with Rodney Strong's 2009 Charlotte's Home Sauvignon Blanc.
Another wine to try is a sparkling wine with a nice piece of Garrotxa cheese broken into chard's. Try it with this sparkling wine by Roederer Estate Sparkling Wine.
There are so many wonderful small bites that you can pick up at a specialty food store like your local Fresh Market or Whole Foods store like olives small sausages, pate`s, and cornichons. I love the cornichons by the 3 pigs. http://www.3pigs.com/
