Last weekend I flew to Ontario to attend my nephews wedding. My mission for the weekend – go to a local winery to choose the wine for the reception. The classic wine and food pairing comes into consideration but more importantly is the group of wine drinkers. The wine that you might personally choose to drink at your table for the evening may be quite different from the wine the whole room would enjoy. Softer tannin wines work well to appease all pallets and for whites slightly off dry styles will match most food pairings not to mention the wedding cake.
At a local winery I found an excellent Baco Noir, mid weight and well rounded and a classic Gewurztraminer. If you need to supply the wine for any festive occasion contact the staff at The Home Vintner for suggestions and take advantage of our expertise.
