I would go for Apothic Red…I’m not positive but my personal preference is I hate the Cupcake wines and so do most people I know..but its all personal preference I guess! We are just going to a formal restaraunt after the ceremony because our wedding is so small and I just set an alcohol budget so people can order whatever they want but obviously with a reception you can’t give free reign. 🙂

KMcKay:  I personally love Apothic Red, and so do many of my friends! Not sure how popular it is in your circle, but in mine it’s a great wine to serve.

I like Apothic Red much more than the cupcake wines. My sister in law served it at her wedding and it was a hit 🙂

KMcKay:  What is the food that you will be serving? And do you know what the primary varietal is in the Apothic Red?

KMcKay:  one drink per person per hour. 80/20 wine to beer. Each bottle serves 4-5 glasses.

I agree with other posters, not a fan of cupcake wine. What are you serving for food? Are your guests foodies and wine connoissuers? What time of day and what type of event – formal, night event versus casual, outdoor day event? These are factors that I would consider when creating alcohol selections.

I would up the number of cases (assuming 6 to a case?). Depending on the time of day and year, around 14-16 cases of a mix. If it’s warmer, more whites and sparkling, cooler more reds.
