Palm Springs Inspired Wine & Cheese Evening

We think entertaining should come easy. Whether you’re hosting a small group of friends or a big event, we hope we can always inspire you with creative and accessible ways to bring your party to life.

So, what’s the easiest party trick in the book? Good wine & yummy food! Wine is something we always have on hand 1) because it won’t go bad and 2) because you never know when an impromptu hang-out will arise. Honestly, a good bottle of wine can even inspire the party! Like this Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio did for us. With a fun & vibrant limited edition bottle designed by Christian Siriano and a crisp, fresh taste, it’s the perfect wine for the summertime. And perfect to pair with our Palm Springs inspired wine & cheese evening!

The stylish bottle, available nationwide for about $10.99, exudes the iconic glamour of 1960s Palm Springs, so naturally, we had to incorporate that colorful, retro flair into our own little gathering. To do so we started with a palm print linen – what’s more fitting than that? And then topped it with fresh pineapples (fruit makes for a simple & easy centerpiece) flowers (an effortless last minute addition to any party) and the food and wine. The wine itself adds color and character to the table, filling the space and inviting everyone to it.


What goes better with an Italian wine than and elegant cheese plate and charcuterie board? You’re right, nothing; it is the perfect pairing! During the summertime, we find guests like to lounge, nibble on light bites, and enjoy extended hours of company. So we wanted to ensure our setting complemented the season with an array of delicious fresh meats & cheeses that everyone could sample. Instead of starting and finishing a course or meal, we wanted our guests to feel welcome to relax and stay awhile!

Whether you’re on-the-go or entertaining from your home, this is a simple yet elegant way to host friends and family. Take a few bottles of Ecco Domani Pinot Grigio with you and the party will follow!
