Easter Entertaining: The Aromantiques Guide to Hosting in Style

As the long weekend approaches, it's time to take your hosting game to the next level. Whether you're hosting an intimate brunch or a glamorous dinner party, we've put together the ultimate guide to crafting the perfect Easter celebration.

Set the Scene

Let's keep it simple but classy - set the tone with some tasteful décor: soft pastels, fresh flowers, and maybe a hint of Easter charm. Light some candles for ambience, and you're all set to welcome your guests.

Wine Selection

No celebration is complete without the right wines. Let The Aromantiques lead the way with a varietal to suit every palate. 

  • Pinot Gris: Start with the fresh and vibrant notes - the Pinot Gris' fruity aromas of honeysuckle, and green pear with hints of flowers and lemon make it perfect for sipping or pairing with appetisers.
  • Chardonnay: The perfect drop to elevate your main course, boasting flavours of apple blossom, jasmine, and white peach. Ideal for a succulent chicken or seafood dish - think grilled shrimp or buttery lobster.
  • Rosé: Keep the good times flowing with this pretty pink sip, adding a splash of fun and flair to any table setting. With aromas of wild strawberries, succulent watermelon, and fresh white flowers, this light-bodied wine is great for sunny days or pairing with light bites. 
  • GSM: Need something with a bit more kick? Combining seductive cherry blossom, black plum, and cinnamon, this medium-bodied wine is perfect for heartier dishes or late-night chats.

Food Pairings

Get those taste buds tingling with delicious bites. Design a menu that complements the flavours of the wines and the setting, using seasonal ingredients and vibrant flavours.

  • Appetizers: Start with an assortment of artisanal cheeses, bruschetta, prosciutto wrapped melon and smoked salmon crostini, paired with The Aromantiques Pinot Gris.
  • Main Course: For the mains, serve up roasted lamb with rosemary potatoes or a buttery lobster, grilled asparagus, and a fresh light salad, paired with The Aromantiques Chardonnay or GSM.
  • Dessert: Finish strong with a decadent dessert such as a lemon tart, berry pavlova, or chocolate-dipped strawberries, paired with The Aromantiques Rosé.

Final Touches

As the party winds down, send your guests off with a smile and a small token of appreciation. Maybe a small gift or a handwritten note. And don't forget to snap a few pics to remember the good times!
