How to Choose a Signature Wedding Wine

As you plan your wedding, there are several decisions to be made. From the colors in your theme to the types of food you serve. There is, undoubtedly, one decision that trumps them all - your signature wine. Maybe we're biased because we have the best wine at the Lake of the Ozarks and wine always comes first, but we believe this decision is quite important. Today we're going to discuss a few things you need to know about your signature wine, and which of our varieties you will LOVE!

This Is Not A Seasonal Decision

While many people believe that wine is a seasonal choice, with red wine being most popular in the fall and winter, and the white wine being more popular in spring and summer. This can be an easy way to decide what you serve, though it really doesn't matter what time of year it is, and has more to do with what you are serving.

Think About Your Menu

Trust your menu, and choose a signature wine that pairs well with your main course! At Seven Springs Winery, we have many varieties of Missouri Wine that will pair beautifully with your meal, but you'll need to know which wines pair the best with your delicacies.

Chicken - If you're serving chicken at your wedding, you'll want a red wine or a white that is on the medium to light end.

Fish - You can't go wrong with a light white wine! They go very well with seafood dishes, and we're sure you will love the combination.

Beef - Strong reds pair well with a strong beefy flavor. We have several varieties that will pair well with your menu selection.

Pork - Bold white is the way to go when you choose pork for your menu.

K.I.S.S - Keep It Simple Silly! 

While it can be easy to get wrapped up in the decisions of which wine to choose, and you may have the opinion of your wine connoisseur guest in mind - keep it simple. One basic white, one basic red, and a bubbly finish should be all you need. Your white wine should be light and refreshing, not complicated. A great choice at Seven Springs Winery would be our Spring Fling - with a light straw color and a lime green rim. Light bodied with fruity, citrus & lychee. For your red wine, choose something a little crisp and a little fruity, like our Spring Red- it's semi sweet red with hint of black cherry and a velvet finish. Do you want to end the night with a sparkling finish? Try one of our two sparkling wines!

Blushing Springs - Sparkling red wine, sweet berry aromas with a semi sweet finish.

Moscato Sparkling - Brilliant, light straw, tropical fruit & flowers. Light bodied, fruit forward sparkling finish.

How Many Bottles?

If you're not sure how many bottles you'll need for your wedding, a good rule of thumb is a bottle per person. So long as you're not having the bottles opened ahead of time, you can return them or keep them for plenty of celebrating afterwords.

If you're doing a toast, you should be about to get about 8 servings from a bottle when done right.

Choose the Right Wine for Your Wedding

If you're still not sure which wine would be the best as your wedding, it sounds like you need to do a wine tasting! At Seven Springs Winery, we have a beautiful facility with a wine tasting bar where you can taste three free wines. If you want to taste more than that, for a small fee you can taste all of them and get a complimentary Seven Spring's wine glass. If you're not stumped on the wine, but you still don't have a wedding venue - we can help with that too! Our wedding packages start at just $2,000, and we would be delighted to show you around our beautiful Lake of the Ozarks wedding venue. Visit our website to learn more!
