Swine and Wine Party

By Rocco Loosbrock

With the ever-growing popularity of`s Swine and Wine Club, I was thinking, how could we get as many people together to enjoy two of the finest things in life; bacon and wine.  Why not try a Swine and Wine Party.

Chocolate Bacon


First, set the date, time and location.  I was thinking a Sunday afternoon, not so late that you and your guests are feeling the effect the following morning.


Second, you need lots and lots of bacon. has a wide variety of different bacon products.  One specific kind of bacon that caught my eye was sun-dried tomato bacon.  Why not pair the bacon with fresh mozzarella, on a toasted baguette for an easy light snack.  Another easy and tasty bacon appetizer was something I found on  This recipe combines scallops, bacon and a sweet and sour sauce.  Also, choose a few types of bacon to cook up and serve by themselves for your guest to enjoy, because what party isn`t complete without a few sweets to go along with the other food.  Keeping with the theme of bacon, how about trying Bacon Chocolate Sueyts.  These delectable delights pair the salty, savory flavors of bacon with the sweetness of dark chocolate for an unmistakable taste.


Lastly, to complete the swine and wine party, you are going to need the wine.  I am going to suggest a wide variety of wine to complement the different flavors of the bacon and food, and suggest when hosting a swine and wine party yourself, doing the same.  To match with the freshness of the bacon and mozzarella a nice Pinot Noir with its richness should bring out the flavors. With the Bacon Chocolate Sueyts nice Merlot would be a great match.


The most important thing to remember about a Swine and Wine party is to enjoy the good food, the good company and good wine.
