I am visiting my galpal today. I am taking a bottle of Bottega Moscato Spumante Dolce, or white sparkling wine. What would be a good snack or lunch item to pair with this wine?

Both! Simply bring whatever food item she likes, assuming you know what that is. "Sell" the combo to her, "I bought you XXX (Burger King $1 double cheeseburger?) which I'll bet will go great with this XXX wine"

It's a little late, but do you have a decent cheese shop near you? Go there, tell them the wine you have, and ask what cheese would go well with it. Buy some crackers/crusty bread, maybe some fruit.

Just in general, something my roommate and I love to do is go to a store like Dean & DeLuca and buy some good prosciutto, brie, olives and bread. It'll cost us about $50, but we'll bring it home and eat it for almost a week with a bottle of wine, apples, and tomatoes. Could be a fun date idea, especially when it's warmer and you could take it outside.
