Wines for Weddings
When the subject of weddings come up, visions of meaningful
wedding toasts and wonderful, bubbly Champagnes often come to
mind. But which Champagne should your offer at your wedding?
What about the best wedding wines to serve and savor on your
special day? If you are a Wine Lover and are hoping to
incorporate your passion for the vine into your big day there
are plenty of unique and creative options to do just that!
A Marriage of Food and Wine
For starters, consider what flavors, styles and varieties of
foods you will be serving at the reception, then you can with
the selected foods to bring the unique flavors out the best. If
you are planning on serving several types of wine in addition to
champagne you may consider a combination of whites and reds.
The ever popular Chardonnay, the wine world’s current favorite
white wine, or a cool crisp Riesling would more than fit the
bill for the white wine category. As for red wines to consider,
Cabernet Sauvignon is always a party hit for red wine drinkers,
or for those who prefer a softer red with more versatile
food-pairing options, a Pinot Noir would be a perfect pick.
Last, but not least, you may consider serving a few bottles of
White Zinfandel (I can hear you, hard-core "real" Wine Lovers
groaning), but the fact is White Zinfandel has a following and
many of those followers find themselves at wedding receptions!
If you plan on toasting to the future with a flute of Champagne
or sparkling wine and cake, you can pre-order classy, engraved
flutes for the occasion. As for the wedding toasts, they are a
key part of any reception and will only be enhanced by great
wines! Most wedding coordinators recommend that you plan on each
guest drinking around 2 glasses of champagne during the toasting
portion of the reception.
