This very simple appetizer makes a delicious first course, especially if you are looking for something a "bit different" to serve. If the flavor of winter melon doesn't appeal to you, you may substitute honeydew or cantaloupe with equally good results.


  1. Cut a triangle in the stem end of the melon and remove seeds with a spoon.
  2. Fill with wine, replace triangle and refrigerate 3 hours, taking care that the wine doesn't spill out.
  3. To serve, drain wine, cut melon into quarters (the long way), place a melon wedge on each plate and pour a bit more wine into the hollow of the melon (where the seeds were).
