I’m picking my alcohol selections for our evening wedding and need help with the types of wine we should offer to our guests. We get four choices (venue provides) and i really want champagne to be one of them. What should the other three be? Two whites and a red? Two reds and a white?

I don’t know anyone who drinks chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and pinot grigio are both safe white choices – i’m not a red drinker so i’d choose two whites and a red, but if you’re already offering champagne might make more sense to go a white and two reds. Prob a merlot and shiraz

I like Merlot and Riesling the best.

I did a wine course the other week. The expert said if Pinot was the only wine on offer she would rather have juice!
All wine’s have there place though, will you be eating with it? What will you be eating? Is it indoors or outdoors? What is the climate? All will make a difference to what people may want to drink.

What is the weather like there? Warmer – two whites and a red (I’d go Cab or Pinot Noir)… Cooler – two reds and a white (I’d go either Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc – I hate Chardonnay)
ETA: maybe since you’re already having champagne, go with two reds and a white

you should do a dryer and sweeter red and a dryer and sweeter white.
you have the champange, so add a dryer white.
then for red, do a dryer and a sweeter. i only like very dry red so i can’t help you towards a sweeter wine.

Thanks everyone! The choices I listed were my only options based on our package and pricing. The weather will most likely be on the warmer side (even though its an evening wedding). I’m not a sweet white wine gal, so moscato is out. Decisions, decisions…
