What Makes the Perfect Wedding Wine?
Traditionally, people have assumed that red wines are appropriate fall or winter wedding wines, while white grapes produce the best wines to serve at a spring or summer wedding. However, it is more important to consider what you will serve on your menu when choosing the type of wine.
A perfect wedding wine should be light, approachable, and fruit-forward. You should avoid wines that are full-bodied and bitter. Overall, you want to ensure that your wine pairs well with a variety of dishes. Here are some recommendations of our best wines to serve at your wedding.
