    I think Pinot noir is a pretty safe red because it’s kind of light to appeal to most red wine drinkers. Pinot grigio is a safe white in my opinion because its not too dry or too sweet, usually..

    I always feel like yellow tail is a great middle of the road wine, and u cant go wrong with it if you are trying to please a bunch of people… If you are looking for another reasonably priced wine, try costco branch wine 8.99 for 1.5L and it tastes great too 🙂

    Shiraz or merlot if it’s a red, sauvignon blanc (from France, not the perfume ones from New Zealand) without a doubt if I drink white.

    A suggestion is to get the cheap wine and serve that as the “second bottle”. Whenever we have guests and we expect that we’ll drink more than one bottle, we buy a cheaper second one. After a glass or two you don’t notice the taste as much, and for a party people are just generally happy as long as they have something in their glasses.

    @hollyberry4:  +1. I think Pinot Noir is the safest choice because it’s relatively low acidity while still being full-bodied. It’s got a little bite, but not too much. It will please 99% of red wine drinkers. I love a good, dry wine but Pinot is still one of my faves. My mom, on the other hand, won’t drink anything too dry and LOVES Pinot.

    I’m not much of a wine drinker really, but I do drink a lot of moscato

    @sofialovesmikey:  Yellow Tail has some really good wine!

    My personal favorites are Pinot Noir and Reisling, but I wouldn’t go with Reisling for the white because it’s too sweet generally. Shiraz is SOOOOO dry! I love me some tannins but I can NOT drink Shiraz. Pinot is generally smoother and easier to pair. 

    I picked Pinot Grigio for the white, but I think Yellowtail has a Viognier, which would be a great pick.

    @sofialovesmikey:  If you can get a deal, go for it!  In my experience people will happily drink whatever free wine is in front of them 🙂

    @sofialovesmikey:  out of curiosity, have you had yellow tail wine before? We frequently buy wines in their price range, but we really don’t like yellow tail- for some reason they just all taste bad to us, and we have tried different varieties. I’d check it out yourself, first, and if you like it, go for it!

    @sofialovesmikey:  I’ve organized several events involving large wine orders, and Pinot Grigio is by far the most popular white wine. As for red, it’s a toss-up, but I’m partial to Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Moscato or riesling for white! I don’t like red wine so I have no opinion on that end.
