Happy National Wine Day! I’m excited to partner with Santa Margherita to celebrate this fun & delicious holiday. We all know you need something tasty to pair with your favorite wine, so I’ll show you how to make these blackberry ricotta crostini. It’s perfect for a party because it’s quick and easy to make!
Lately, I’ve been sipping on Santa Margherita’s Prosecco Superiore, and I’m really impressed with the quality. It is made with 100% Glera grapes, grown in the hills of Valdobbiadene, a town synonymous with the finest Prosecco Superiore, and DOCG status – the highest and most distinctive classification possible. Whether you’re having a dinner party with friends or a date night with your significant other, this Prosecco is one that you’ll want to serve again and again!
I also love a Sparkling Rosé, and the Santa Margherita Rosé did not disappoint! It’s not sweet but has a hint of florals. It’s made from a blend of Chardonnay, Glera, and Malbec. I’m not an expert, but I think you could serve this wine with just about any dish!
I was happy to learn that Santa Margherita is passionate about preserving the environment. Environmental, economic and social considerations are important to the company and they have honored this with efforts in every facet of how the wineries operate, upholding the highest standards: sustainable, eco-friendly, vegan-friendly and energy efficient.
Both of these wines were light and refreshing, not sweet and just the right amount of bubbly. They paired perfectly with these blackberry crostini!
I love quick and easy appetizers because when I’m having friends and family over, I don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. These crostini might look fancy, but it only takes a few minutes to assemble!
Simply slice a baguette into 1″ slices and drizzle with olive oil.
Then toast the baguette until it just begins to brown.
Top each baguette slice with a scoop of ricotta cheese.
Then top each slice with blackberries, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkle of fresh herbs!

Can’t find blackberries? Try it with strawberries or blueberries instead! Be sure to use fresh fruit though. I don’t recommend using frozen berries in this recipe.
