There’s no better way to celebrate the union of two beautiful souls than a toast. And when it comes to choosing the perfect wines for your wedding, the task seems easier than it actually is!
Planning a wedding isn’t easy. It can be overwhelming and stressful. Everything needs to be perfect. From the decorations to the arrangements and the desserts, you want everything to be a representation of the love and connection you share with your better half.
So, when you’ve taken it upon yourself to choose the wines for dinner, you know it’s not going to be easy. There are so many options to select from. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible either!
Here’s all you need to know about selecting the right wines and turning your special day into an amazing one:
Consider the Location and Season
While it may seem strange, choosing the right wines depends on the location of the venue and the season as well. If you’re having an outdoor wedding and it’s during the summers, we’d recommend going with white wines.
Go with a chilled Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Chardonnay. You can also add champagne to the list. But if you’re having an indoor wedding during winters, we recommend going with red wines like Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
Now for the most important part: the food. This is important because the wrong wines can spoil the taste of the entire meal!
Chicken and Lean Meats
For chicken and lean meat dishes, we recommend going for a mild to medium red wine.
Malbec is great for spicy dishes. It goes well with Mexican and Indian dishes. This is because Malbec’s taste is a mixture of berries, plums, and spices. This makes it perfect for such dishes.
Pinot Noir is perfect for chicken-based dishes. It also goes well with lamb. This is because it has soft tannins and has a very distinct fruity an earthy taste. Syrah is also a great option for lamb and stew-based dishes.
If you plan to serve seafood at your wedding, the best types of wines to go with are Pinot Noir and Merlot. Merlot goes with just about any food pairing so you’re safe.
For beef, we recommend going with Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon.
