Enjoy a meze party featuring Greek-inspired salads, skewers, finger foods, and spreads.
Wine Note This menu brings together bright, summery Mediterranean flavors. Wines that develop along with a cuisine often make the perfect match, and this is especially true of Greek wines. Moschofilero is a pink-skinned local grape capable of making white or rosé wines, like the organically grown Domaine Spiropoulos Meliasto Moschofilero Rosé 2007. This dry, crisp rosé is ideal with delicate fish and chicken dishes. As a red option, try the widely available Boutari Naoussa 2005, with dark cherry fruit and underlying mushroom, earthy, and meaty flavors that will marry nicely with flavorful meats, as in the menu's Lamb-Stuffed Grape Leaves. –Jeffery Lindenmuth
