    I like Barefoot brand pink moscato….tastes more like champagne…no bitter taste…easy to drink.

    Oh, yummy, I like all your choices.  I voted for pinot grigio and merlot!  🙂

    From a wine-lover’s perspective, I would go with the Pinot Grigio and the Merlot…probably the best with the food/easiest for guests palates.

    I’m a sweeter wine person, so for whites I vote: Reisling, Pinot Grigio, and reds I vote: Shiraz, Syrah, Malbec.

    But most red lovers like either merlot or a cab.  Can’t go wrong with either.

    @Jazzle:  First of all – YAY for the meat-free wedding! I’m veg and I would LOVE to go to one of these.

    I don’t care for white wine, but I think Pinot Noir is your best bet for red. It’s the most palatable for the average person, and it pairs well with cheese (lasagna), “meatier” fish (salmon). Are you having mushrooms in the lasagna? I love the light, dry taste of Pinot Noir with the earthy, “dirt-like” taste of mushroom.

    Merlot is another good choice, but I’d stay away from cab – it can be really dry and bitter for some people.

    i would go with the pinot and cabernet that way there is something for the whites lover and something for the reds.

    I would pair a buttery chardonnay with the salmon and the cabernet with the lasagna. As another consideration, a california red zinfandel would also work nicely with the pasta. I know that is not what you asked for, but you should be choosing wines based on the food you are serving rather than the shape of the bottle/DIY lable convenience factor.

    Edit: Pinot Grigio is, IMO, too crisp and fruity to pair well with the salmon.

    HATE chardonnay.  HATE it.  It’s actually the white wine provided by the venue i’m thisclose to booking and I’m going to ask them if I can change it to something that costs the same. I know quite a few people who also dislike chardonnay

    I’m a wino and not typically a Merlot fan but with lasagna it would go the best (Chianti would be best), so I picked Pinot Grigio and Merlot. I’m not a huge white wine fan, typically stick to the German style whites (Riesling or Gewurz) but I think Chards go better with fish than Pinot Grigio. Cabs are too full bodied for a pasta dish and I’m super picky with Pinot Noir.

    Pinot Noir pairs really well with salmon, and I think most people would like it.
