What are some ideas for appetizers for a wine tasting party for 10 guests. I'm looking for something other than the standard cheese tray
Bruschetta. Bacon wrapped scallops. Thai chicken salad in lettuce cups. Salmon mouse in endive leaves. Seared beef tenderloin medallions with horseradish cream. Pork tenderloin medallions with cranberry chutney. Carmelized onion and goat cheese tarts. Spinach and feta tarts. I can keep going...I love apps.

Mushroom-polenta diamonds (http://www.marthastewart... gruyere and parm beignets (http://www.marthastewart... upside down mushroom tartlets (http://www.marthastewart... or sweet and sour chicken wings (http://www.marthastewart...)
Bacon wrapped stuffed dates. Perfect blend of salty and sweet. I like to stuff them with bleu cheese, feta or almonds.
Or figs! Amazing!

One of my seasonal faves, you can form them in muffin tins if you like. Great flavor... http://www.bonappetit.com...
Roquefort gougeres (or their Gorgenzola cousins) are my "go-to" -- hot out of the oven they practically SCREAM for a glass of wine.

You could do a savory puff pastry tart cut into small squares like this one
or these Pomegranate Glazed Chicken Drumsticks
