I am trying to figure out what kind of wine to buy for about 100 guests and hw much of each. What kind of wine would you like to have at a wedding? The ones listed are the only ones offered at our venue and we have to go through them. We will be offering a few but I am trying to determine how much of each. We aren’t having a bar because I can’t afford what they are charging to a bartender and the alcohol. If we end up finding the money for it I will want a good cold sangria and maybe another signature drink as the options for drinks. (NOT an open bar!)

I am a white wine drinker, exclusively- and I always look for the pinot grigio at weddings :). But that’s just me…

I would love to be able to choose more than one option. I am much more of a red wine person so I would love to see the following
If I were to drink white I would prefer

What are you having to eat? I always drink red wine if I’m having red meat or spicy food, but I tend to drink white with lighter foods, especially in the summer.

Can you have more than one? As a general rule of thumb, you should have one red, one white, and possibly a blush, which would be white zin.
I only drink red wine, but honestly, I can’t really tell the difference between pinot noir and merlot, except merlot is drier.

A good pinot.
We had red and white at our wedding (pinot, cab, merlot) and a white (chard).
However my FAVORITE way we served wine at our wedding? Our venue made for us homemade red sangria with chunks of fresh fruit in it.
Our guests raved on and on about it! It was something that as a guest, I had never had at a wedding, but so glad I chose that as another option for our guests.
It was such a refreshing choice for a hot, summer night!

Pinot Grigio is a nice safe choice for a white as it goes well with a lot of different types of food (and there are those of us who hate Chardonnay with a passion). For red, it’d depend on what you’re serving as a main course. If you’ve got some serious red meat option I’d say Merlot, otherwise the Pinot Noir.

I second the vote for a Malbec, Shiraz or a Syrah. I love red wine and like it when I get to try some of the less mainstream varieties. You could think about a blend as well.

Pinot Noir is a light enough red to be able to even go with some fishes and definetly with chicken in addition to the typical red meats. So if you’re only allowed one that would be a pretty good bet. I’m a white wine drinker and would take the Pinot Grigio. But PG doesn’t go as well with red meats as PN does with white meats.
However, champagne is pretty popular for the toast, so if you can only have one, I’d do that.
If you can have an assortment, I’d do PN, PG and Champagne

If I only had these options from which to choose, I’d pick pinot noir, Champagne, and pinot grigio, in that order.

Oh I prefer Cab over Pinot Noir – sorry totaly forgot about Cab!!!
Or a blend is great too – Im drinking a blend right now called Menage a Trois (they have red and white available) and it is delicious!

I love red wines, and am much less picky about them than whites. My favorite from your list would be pinot noir because it pairs well with tons of foods. I also loves me some champagne.
