In addition to light, sweet white wines, a muscatel or late-harvest wine would be a magnificent pairing with this fruit when served fresh, either on its own or in fruit salads or skewers. A sweeter sparkling wine would also be a good match for these dishes.

A drier, brut sparkling wine would be advisable if the melon is cooked, and accompanied by savoury ingredients that add complexity to the dish. The choices are endless when it comes to dry white wines produced by any of the growing regions in Spain or elsewhere.
