CHAR-FRUIT-ERIE LIKE A PRO

The ultimate charFRUITerie board is surprisingly easy to put together. Follow these steps and pair with the perfect wine for a mouthwatering BBQ experience all of your friends will love!

Step 1: Sizzle that fruit
Cut fruit into half-inch slices and place directly on a hot grill. Cook each side until slightly charred. The heat from the barbecue will caramelize the natural sugars in the fruit. We used pineapple, peaches and kiwi, but bananas and melons also grill delightfully well.

Step 2: Select your pairings
Round out your charFRUITerie board with foods that complement your newly grilled fruit. We added fresh raspberries and ice cream for total dessert vibes. Alternatively, you could choose salty snacks like cheese, pretzels or even prosciutto to balance the sweetness. Then, choose a Barefoot Wine to match. We paired ours with Barefoot Peach Fruitscato to match the sweetness of our selections, but one of our Fruitscatos would also make an excellent pairing for a saltier spread.

Step 3: Assemble with flair
Once your fruit and snacks are ready to be assembled, select a platter large enough to hold it all. Add your ingredients to the board from largest to smallest—that way, you can fill in little nooks and crannies with smaller foods. The shape of the fruit may also dictate its placement. Slices of watermelon can be spread out into a fan shape, prosciutto can be artfully piled and honey or melted chocolate can be placed in a dish to anchor your board.
