I am an introvert by nature, which means most days you will find me on my couch with a book and my favorite cookies. It's a great place to be, and I enjoy my alone time. However, there are many moments in life that are made so much better by sharing with friends. Weddings, promotions, or even just a beautiful spring weekend are all share worthy moments. And those special moments are made even more awesome with the perfect pairing of food and wine! Prophecy Rosé was the perfect accompaniment to my homemade brushetta this week!

Sharing Memorable Moments
I absolutely love any type of appetizer or finger food. There have been many restaurant meals in my life that have included only a collection of appetizers with a side salad for the required vegetable serving! And, of course, all appetizers taste a tad bit better with the perfect wine, right? I tried out a the new Prophecy Rosé this week and if you have memorable moments to celebrate this summer, I highly recommend sharing it with your friends!
Prophecy Rose Wine
Prophecy Rosé is delicate and bright with layered flavors of red fruit, melon and citrus. It has a crisp refreshing finish that is perfect for warm nights, fun with friends, and bold appetizer flavors.
Pairing wine with food isn't always easy and I am no expert to be sure! However, I do know not to pair a bold wine with an equally bold food. Those two flavors just compete with each other. I love that the light flavors of the Prophecy Rosé allow the more intense flavors of basil and fire roasted tomatoes to really shine in the bruschetta recipe!
How to Make Bruschetta
Brushetta is basically grilled bread rubbed with garlic and topped with olive oil and salt. You can make many variations that include toppings like tomato, vegetables, beans, cured meat, or cheese. There are SO many different bruschetta recipe but personally, I love the classic Italian flavor combination of basil, tomato, and cheese! Just brush sliced bread with olive oil and broil in the oven for a few minutes on either side. Then rub with a clove of garlic and sprinkle with sea salt.
Choose Easy Bruschetta Toppings
Once you have your bread oiled, toasted, and seasoned, you just need to add the toppings. To give this homemade bruschetta recipe a bit more depth, I went with a fire roasted canned tomato. Fire roasting really gives tomatoes a nice smoky depth to them. And since I am usually pressed for time, I don't fire roast them myself! Of course, if you are inviting friends over to share your memorable moments with them, you don't want to spend the whole time in the kitchen cooking for them, right?

Once you have your bruschetta finished, pair with a lovely glass of Prophecy Rosé and share with friends! Your special moments will be so much more memorable when you take time to celebrate them with food and family! And Prophecy Rosé is vibrant and share worthy!
