When it comes to selecting the perfect wine for an event, there are a few things to consider. Some people prefer crisp, lighter-styled wines, while others like big, bold options. To ensure that everyone is satisfied, it's best to choose a variety of wines that will appeal to all tastes. For white wines, you can choose a bright Sauvignon Blanc, along with a richer style wine, such as Chardonnay or Roussanne.
For red wines, you can choose a bold Bordeaux-style blend and fruity wine such as Malbec or Pinot Noir. To add some sparkle to the event, select a champagne or prosecco that is mild and not too dry. Rosé wines have become increasingly popular due to their light and fruity flavor. When selecting wine for a large group of people, it's best to stick to classic grape varieties.
This is probably not the best time to try little-known niche wines. Instead, select popular grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc. Of course, the wine you choose must be suitable for the food you plan to serve. For whites, opt for Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigios and even some blends.
To make it easier for guests to choose their favorite wine, consider adding a short description of each wine to the menu. This will help guests get a better idea of what they are going to buy if they haven't tried any of the wines before. When it comes to serving the wine at your event, it's best to opt for screw-capped wines (also known as Stelvin system screw caps). These wines allow them to be served quickly and do not indicate inferior quality wine.
In fact, screw-capped wines simply indicate that they are ready to be enjoyed. To ensure that everyone is satisfied with their selection of wine at your event, it's best to choose two red wines (one light and full-bodied), two white wines (one light and full-bodied) and a fifth selection such as prosecco, sparkling rosé or Moscato. Dessert wines are also an option and are usually sweet and served with cake or ice cream.
