Wedding Wine Help

Posted by meredithhemenway, Jan 17, 2010.

I am getting married in May and need suggestions for a few RED wines that are more cheaply priced. Say, under $10 a bottle. Anyway, I found a fantastic Pinot Grigio that I really liked--the PrimaTerra Pinot Grigio... is there any other varietal that this same winery makes that is as cheap and worth buying a lot of for my reception?

You will not go wrong with red wine from CHILE.

I suggest COCHA Y TORO.

Congratulations !! CHEERS!

Whatever it is, you're not likely to remember it. ;) Make sure someone gets a picture of you drinking some!
Our whole day was a total blur, including the wine! I think I saved the receipt from that epic liquor store purchase, and that's the only way I can know what on earth we served. And we had a very intimate 40-guest backyard wedding.

Have an absolutely fantastic day! And remember to delegate!

See my review for Rene Junot, the double bottle, French Red Table Wine, please try it and see if it is not a suitable choice to satisfy a very large and mixed group of people. At Safeway, they offer 6 bottle discounts that are significant.

You said the month of May.
Are you going to be in a very hot clime?

Your location would provide me with a
strong guideline.
Also, how many are you catering to?
Is it a dinner, a brunch, canapes, cocktail reception, then a full meal?
Several wines?
A fantastic inexpensive Rose, perhaps.
Only trying to serve......Thank you, my friend!

PrimaTerra makes a few other wines. I'd try out the sangiovese, which is food-friendly, due to higher acid.
