Wedding Wine FAQs
What wine to choose?
There are just too many permutations when considering what wine to purchase for your big day and it will be impossible to satisfy every single guest. Hence we highly recommend you take the path most travelled and select wines that have proven time and again to be crowd pleasers.
Answer these 3 questions and you’ll arrive at your selection in no time !
This needs to be our #1 question because the higher the price of the wine doesn’t necessarily equate to more guests are going to love it.
Always start with how much you would like to pay for each bottle of wine. Then select wines that fall within your desired price range that you can start choosing from.
#2 NUMBER OF BOTTLES
One bottle usually serves about 4-6 glasses. So assuming each guest has one glass each, 1.5 – 2.0 bottles per table would be the average norm. Have your banquet waiter to serve the wine upon request instead of leaving the bottles on the table so that you’ll be able to re-distribute from those who do not drink to those who do regardless of where they sit.
The math wont’ stack up if your guests LUUVVV their vino so do budget a little more if they do!
#3 TYPE OF WINE
Chances are you’ll be serving fish to meats to vegetables. So looking for one to two wines to matchmevery single of your 10 course meal, would be close to impossible.
However there are many tried and tested wines that can most of the job.
Avoid complex wines that require specific flavours to accentuate them. We recommend single varietals that are not too heavy so that they can see through all your dishes.
There are red wines that can straddle between meats and fish. If you have the budget, select one red and one white per table so you can rest knowing you’ve done as best as any wine connoisseur give the task at hand.
