::raises hand:: Pick me, pick me! Man, I wish it was possible to join you over the internet. My husband works until midnight tonight, and a girl’s wine tasting evening sounds amazing.

We had one red and one white bottle on each table (long tables – they sat about 20 people each) and we had plenty of wine. In fact, the groomsmen took all the bottles that were unfinished and danced around drinking from the bottles – they got more drunk than I’ve ever seen them, and they normally drink imperial stouts and barley wines. That being said, we had a lot of guests who don’t drink at all, so you will probably need more than we did.

 

Edit: Also, wines can be successfully refridgerated and saved for later. Just make sure you get the cork on really well and let it sit out for a few hours (the reds, anyway) before drinking next time.

Wellll… I live in New York, so I could help by actually tasting the wines.  Just saying 😀  It’s hard work, but someone has to do it!  Hehe

What wines are you tasting? Perhaps a bee or two can give some personal input.

I would gladly come taste wine with you but being as I live in wine country (and thus already surrounded by wine) that wouldn’t be financially responsible. LOL!

@KatNYC2011: Whine. I want two glasses of red wine next to me! I might have to find someone willing to come over and have a wine night with me now.

@KatNYC2011: LOL, darnit!  But if you are worred about pleasing Future Father-In-Law with your choices, I’d say taste them all, rank your favorites, and then, after you know what tastes good for regular people, look at the Wine Spectator rating, or whatever score is available, online.  See if any of your favorites have a good rating, and allow it to be the tiebreaker.

@KatNYC2011: Yes, but you have an excuse. I think if I headed home at 4pm and opened a bottle of wine all for myself, people might think I have a problem. 😉
