Something red 🙂

I am THE least picky wine drinker you could ever find!

Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir.

I think Pinot Grigio is a good choice for a white. I would say a Zinfandel or Merlot (or even a house wine mix of the reds) would be good for a red. Def. have a red and white available – the most common line of preferences can be drawn between the two as opposed to between certain reds or certain whites.

As for beer, I would do the same thing – one lighter beer (lager) and one darker beer (stout, or porter) – that should please most.

Riesling! I only like wine that is on the sweeter side.

I prefer a Riesling, but I’d be fine with Pinot Grigio. Pinot noir is a good red choice (and oddly enough Riesling and Pinot noir were the 2 wines we chose for our wedding….not that I’m biased or anything). For beer I agree with @melodicsighs1, a lighter and heavier beer. My hubby knows more about beer so I left that decision to him (again at our wedding, one was a Yuengling, the other 2 were local brews).

White – Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, or Savigonac Blanc (spelled that wrong)

Red – Cabernet, Pinor Noir

I would probably do a sauvignon blanc (I think of that as the most “neutral” white — not too sweet, not too dry, not too heavy) and a merlot or merlot blend.  I tend to find those are the safest varietals at any price point, too.

It might also help if you post your menu choices, if they’re set, since some wines go better with some foods (like, if you’re doing steak, I’d do a heavier red, etc.)

I agree that I prefer sweeter wines like a Riesling, but I think a Pinot Grigio is a decent white that will please both palattes if you’re only going to have one.

I don’t drink red wine, so no help there unfortunately.

I have worked at a winery the last four years and I would have to say out of the white I’ve sold more Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay. And red, Cabernet Sauvignon 🙂
