I am doing a mini sample study on what ppl prefer, since I need to figure out my wine estimates for the wedding 🙂 Thank you bees!
I know ppl usually drink to suite their meal, but we will be serving both white and red meat, so we cannot really go on that.

Why not have red and white available so people can choose?

it really depends! If I come home from work and want some wine I’ll usually go with red since it’s not as heavy. But if I were at a wedding, I think I would go with red

Just to clarify, we will be having all 3, just wondering about the amount of each. 🙂

My go to wine is a Pinot Grigio, and almost all reds are too heavy for me. That being said, in summer time I do like chilled roses as well.

White zinfandel is my go to wine. It’s not the fanciest, but it tends to be pretty decent whatever price range the bottle and it compliments both red meat and things like chicken. IMHO

For me, I drink whites more in the spring and summer. In fall and winter, I tend towards reds. I’m not a big fan of rose. So my answer would be, both during different seasons.

I drink both red and white depending on food and the temperature outside, but if I’m in a situation like a wedding where I’m going to have a couple glasses and won’t be sipping water with it and there are many cameras around, I always drink white so that my teeth are not stained red in pictures.

Just a note of caution: take the results of this poll with a grain of salt. Almost everyone who responds will be a woman, and my (somewhat limited) catering and restaurant experience has led me to believe that, as a general rule, about 60% of women strongly prefer white wine, while 80% or so of men will go for red every time. I don’t know if you’re serving beer or not, but figure that a majority of the men will drink beer/red wine exclusively (unless you’re also doing a full bar, which complicates things). Anyway, my point is, if you have a caterer I would ask their advice. If you’re DIYing, get the opinion of a wine drinker (parent, uncle, older friend).
I personally have no particular preference between the three- depends on the food and what i’m in the mood for- but I would think that, in November, a fair number of people would opt for red.

Thank you for all your help!!! I guess the best thing to do is to discuss this with the venue, I am sure they will be able to give me some indication. This has never the less been very interesting- I always drink red wine- Pinotage especially and just sort of assumed everyone has a go-to wine 🙂 Hmmm, I would love some wine right now actually!
