    Are they also super sweet in flavor or are some more like regular wine?  I like dry whites like Sauvignon Blanc and fruity reds like Cabernet.  The only seasonals I have had like the ones you listed were super sweet and made my stomach hurt.

    I like the personal touch! I guess you could do 1/2 traditional and half fruity wines?

    I’ve had apple wines before and they’re really yummy, so I say go for it.  I’d get a standard dry apple wine (or whatever the winery’s signature wine is), then something with a fun flavor to complement the food.

    I personally would prefer the seasonal wines! I hate dry wine. Yick.

    That sounds really good.  I’d love to try those different wines.  But if you’re going to bring your own, can you just have a larger variety?  Maybe 2 or 3 of the unique wines, and then a few typical red/white wines just in case some people arent adventurous.

    @little_d:  +1 this.

    They sound super yummy to me but if at all possible I advocate having a little of each for variety 🙂

    That is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on wine!!! But it sounds delicious.

    I’d like to try them, but I’d also be a little bummed if you didn’t have any “regular” wine.  Unless these aren’t super sweet – if not, that’d be ok.

    @princess_r:  They sound awesome! Perfect for an Autumn wedding. 

    ETA: When I read the post, I was like ‘hells yeah, I’d drink them! In fact, I wouldn’t mind a glass now.’ Then I remembered that I’m nearly four months pregnant, I’m such a bad mother lol. (In case it wasn’t obvious, I don’t drink while pregnant. I just miss my wine and got a little carried away.)

    I wouldn’t be offended, but if they’re all sweet I’d be a little annoyed. If you’re bringing your own bottles in can’t you do a mixture?

    I like unusual wines, especially if they are sweet, so I would love these. That being said, I know a lot of picky wine people, so I would definitely consider having some regular wine options on hand.

    They sound delicious!  We have a winery & distillery in our area that specializes in apple & pear wines & brandies – they’re fantastic, and I’ve seen several of our non-wine drinking friends try them and enjoy them.  To add further expense to your menu, you could always consider a couple ciders too 🙂 

    By the way, to everyone who thinks alternative fruit wines are super sweet, they aren’t always!  It’s just like grape wine, there’s a range from super crisp and dry to very sweet.  Most wineries will put on their label if it’s a dry or sweet wine, since you can’t be expected to tell from just the fruit used.
