Cantaloupe Prosciutto Mozzarella appetizer is easy to prepare and can be prepared before your guest’s arrival.

It’s a gluten-free appetizer if any of your guests should be allergic to gluten.

The taste of these appetizers is sweet, salty, savory. I like to top it with balsamico glace for both taste and the visual effect it has. 

You could use other types of melon but I prefer cantaloupe for its taste and looks.

So what wine goes with an melon and prosciutto appetizer. 

Riesling is a perfect foil for this appetizer, in softly-dry to softly-sweet styles. Moscato d’Asti is light, frothy, fresh, and crisp and would be a delightful sip. If you prefer, a dry Rosé would be perfect or try a Beaujolais/Gamay or lighter Pinot Noir to set off the Prosciutto.

A quick note on wines. Wine is not an exact science. If you don’t like any of the suggested wines above drink the one you like for this appetizer.
