Have a Wine-y Wedding!

There's nothing quite as beautiful as having the backdrop of rolling Ozark hills, and wine grape trellis' growing at your very own wedding. Winery weddings at the Lake of the Ozarks have the vast possibility to be fun, classy, quirky and stylish all at once, or completely separately! Here are a few of our favorite winery themed wedding ideas.

Wine-y Flowers

A fun way to incorporate a wine theme into your wedding is with grapes or grape leaves in your floral arrangements. Be sure to talk with your florist and bring photos of sample ideas. There are some classy and beautiful ideas that you can see on our Pinterest Boards, be sure to follow us for fun wedding decor ideas!

Wine-y Photos

There is nothing more beautiful than a stunning vineyard backdrop. There are so many options for cute photos with you and your soon-to-be. Whether indoor or outdoor, we have many beautiful places to take photos for groups, couples, or bridal.


Wine Barrel Decor

Wine barrels are classic and stylish. You can use them down the aisles with candles and flowers. You can use them to display the guest book, as well as food or photos at the reception. The possibilities are endless with wine barrels!


Wine-y Printing

From your invites and programs, down to your thank you's, incorporating wine and grapes can be extremely sophisticated. You can even take your engagement photos at Seven Springs Winery to incorporate the beautiful views and backdrops into your look from the beginning!


Wine-y Cork Decor

Wine corks are an extremely popular thing to incorporate into your wedding! You can find lots of ideas on our Pinterest Boards incorporating corks. They have been used for a guest book, with people signing each cork, and then displaying them in a beautiful vase or jar.

Grilling Meats & Drinking Reds

With summer evenings starting to tone down on the heat, grilling is a wonderful way to enjoy your evening - and turn up a tastier heat!  There is nothing more relaxing than enjoying your favorite lawn chair with the smell of the grill going, a delicious red wine in hand, the crickets chirping and fireflies floating by. The best winery at the Lake of the Ozarks is here to help with your wine and grill pairings! Check out our zesty reds before firing up your grill this evening.


Blushing Springs

Sparkling red wine, sweet berry aromas with a semi sweet finish

Syrah

Aromas of currant, blackberry, black pepper, and a subtle vanilla oak finish.

Pinot Noir

Medium plum, garnet color with berry & spices. Medium bodied, velvety tannins & long finish

Norton

An opaque, deep plum color. Tobacco, oak, full bodied, spicy smooth persistent finish.

Dry Rougeon

Light bodied red, no tannins with a berry finish

Seven's Red Heaven

Beautiful deep plum colors, with refreshing crisp fruit flavors & a distinct sweet finish.

Wine Pairing

The basic idea behind wine pairing is to match the intensity of the wine with the flavor of the food. Typically reds go better with barbecue than whites, but don't be afraid to try anything. Don't take it too seriously, and drink the wines you like! The best part about pairing wines with your food is to enjoy it in all of it's flavorful goodness.


Our winery has the best selection of wine at the Lake of the Ozarks, so whether you're firing up the grill, or just wanting to enjoy a bottle in peace, we have an amazing variety! Of course, if you want a delicious meal that doesn't require you to lift a finger, we have an amazing selection for dinner at the Lake of the Ozarks. From our delicious appetizers, to our paninis and pastas you will find delicious food that pairs wonderfully with our wines.

5 Accessories for the Wine Connoisseur...or Beginner!

Oenophile, wino, connoisseur, aficianado, sommelier...the list goes on! There are many names for wine lovers, wine collectors, and wine fans. You don't have to be a wine fanatic to have good wine accessories though. Behind some high prices and posh products, you'll find that the brand doesn't matter nearly as much at the practicality! Here are a few things you should have on hand if you drink wine.

Wine Opener

We think that even Houdini would agree that it's hard to break into a wine bottle without corkscrews...These fancy tools come in many shapes, sizes and styles, ranging from beginner to seemingly complicated. The goal, though, is to get your wine open! We have an easy to use corkscrew in our shop, it also sports our lovely logo, so you can always be reminded of your favorite winery at the Lake of the Ozarks when you open your wine!



Wine Glasses

In desperate situations we suppose a tumbler would work, but to truly enjoy wine you need wine glasses. Recent studies have even proven that the shape of a glass affects how the flavor of the wine is perceived. You have many different choices when it comes to glasses, stemmed vs. stemless, and crystal vs. glass. Some experts argue that stemless wine glasses cause unsightly finger prints, and too much heat transfer - though the downsides are pretty minimal. As for the differences between crystal and glass, crystal wins because it can be spun to have a strong, yet thin rim.




Decanter

This may seem rather fancy for someone who just casually enjoys a glass of wine, but exposing wine to oxygen before you drink it can help smooth out harsh tannins and bitterness. It can also release beautiful aromas! Wine can aerate slightly as your pour it from the bottle to your glass, but this tool increases the rate at which oxygen brings out the wine's best characteristics. Most aerating and decanting is reserved for red wines, but you can perform this technique on white and ros├ęs as well.







Wine Stopper

After the cork is popped, wine is extremely vulnerable to oxidation. Oxidation is excessive exposure to oxygen, which is wine's unique form of kryptonite. Keeping oxygen away from the wine is the only way to prolong how long the wine will last. We have some unique stoppers in our shop that will not only preserve your wine, and make your wine bottle look beautiful at the same time!


Tasting Notebook

After one...or a dozen glasses of wine, your memory of the flavor won't be the same. As simple as it seems to have a tasting notebook, it's actually a very important tool if you're interested in becoming a wine connoisseur, or even just a wine lover. Certain flavors will pop out, and when you write them down you will have a better memory of them! You can keep an actual notebook, or just take notes in your phone, it's important to keep these notes in the same spot where you can always come back to them.


Whether you are a wine expert, a beginner, or a wine lover - having good tools will make your wine experience all the more fun! Plus you can impress your friends at your next dinner party with all of your fancy wine gear. If you're still building your wine collection, we have the best wine at the Lake of the Ozarks and we'd love to help build your accessories collection AND your wine collection! Our venue is peacefully nestled in the Ozarks of Missouri, and we have a wonderful facility for you to sit back and enjoy the view, and the wine! Stop in this weekend for a tasting, a bottle and a deliciously good time!
