Wine & BBQ Pairing for the Holiday Weekend

The holiday weekend is finally here, and that means one thing - which wine will you be drinking? People will be firing up their grills, getting together with friends and family, and having a relaxing weekend. Have you been wondering which wine you should pair with your Memorial Day menu? Here are some wine pairing suggestions that should complete your menu perfectly.


BBQ and Wine

Did you know that 75% of Americans plan to barbecue over Memorial Day Weekend? In addition it is estimated that 818 hot dogs are eaten every minute in American between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Because so many will be celebrating with grilling out, we wanted to suggest some wine pairings from our delicious Lake of the Ozarks winery to pair with your meal.

Burgers

There's nothing that says "holiday weekend" more than a nice juicy burger. They are one of the most popular items being served this weekend and need to be paired accordingly. Beef pairs excellently with red wine, and because of the rich, fattiness in a burger, as well as cheese and all of the other toppings you may add - we suggest our dry red! Our Sangria Rojo is a light, refreshing blend of sprite, orange juice, and a Dry Rougeon wine. The dryness will cut through the rich flavors in the burgers, making for a perfect pair.

Hotdogs

Hot dogs are one of the most popular menu options for Memorial Day Weekend, and our pairing list wouldn't be complete without them. We recommend a red wine, and one with a bit of spicy flair, but not too sweet. Our Syrah has aromas of currant, blackberry, and black pepper with a subtle vanilla oak finish - PERFECT for a smoky BBQ flavor.

BBQ Chicken

If beef isn't your meat of choice when lighting up the grill, BBQ chicken is a great way to kick off the holiday. Whether you smoke it and smother it in sauces, or prefer good old fashions BBQ sauce, we think our Norton would pair beautifully. This Missouri wine has an opaque, deep plum color, with tobacco and oak flavors. These will blend perfectly with a rich BBQ sauce! Plus, the full-bodied, spicy, smooth, and persistent finish make this pairing divine.


Portobello Burgers

If we have any vegetarians in the mix, BBQ and wine pairings aren't out the window! Grill up some portobello burgers and serve them with our Syrah wine as well! The currant, blackberry, and black pepper flavors pair perfectly with the rich, subtle flavors of the mushroom,, and the subtle vanilla oak finish is perfection.

Your Favorite Winery at the Lake of the Ozarks

Whether you need to stock up on your wine for your big BBQ, or you need a place to enjoy the weekend - Seven Springs Winery is here for you. Our facility is perfect for hanging out and enjoying a delicious bottle of wine and the view. Plus, our bottled wine can be purchased and brought back for your festivities. Relax before the weekend, come sit on our patio, and drink in the atmosphere!

Come for the wine...Stay for the atmosphere...Remember the view!

Planning Your Wedding Bar

If there's one thing that you don't want to neglect at your wedding, it's the bar. Whether you're having an open bar or only a few signature drinks - you'll want to make sure you have the appropriate amount on hand for your wedding. At Seven Springs Winery, we are experts in wine, but we also serve other types of alcohol at our wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks. Here are a few things to keep in mind about your wedding bar, and what you ought to have on hand to keep a completely stocked bar.


Wedding Bar Tips

For some couples, the wedding bar can be a topic of confusion or even a touchy subject depending on a families budget and stance on alcohol. Be prepared to talk about it while planning your big day, and make decisions ahead of time to help make the event go smoothly.

Make a Plan

Do you have a few family members who are famous for drinking a little too much and dragging the party down? Make plans ahead of time for what you can do to keep that from happening. Whether you decide on a cash bar and only feature a few highlighted drinks. You can also keep the bar open for a specific number of hours if you want to do an open bar. This should help keep guests from overindulging for a long period of time.

Provide Plenty of Food & Drinks

If you really want to keep the alcohol limited, or at least counteract it a bit, you can make sure to provide snacks after the reception. Some brides choose fun foods, like pizza, while others may choose an appetizer. Full bellies can help slow the rate of alcohol absorption into the system.

Stock a Full Wedding Bar

This is only a suggested type and amount of alcohol that you should provide at your wedding, but you'll want to work with your wedding coordinator to make sure that you are planning accordingly.


For a wedding with one hundred guests, that has a reception that lasts about four hours, with one bar, there are some types and amounts of alcohol that you can provide.

Wine

You can't go wrong when you have twelve bottles of red and twelve bottles of white. Obviously, when you have a winery wedding at the Lake of the Ozarks, wine is going to be the BEST option. We have many varieties for you to choose from, so come do a wine tasting at our Missouri winery, and work with our wedding coordinator to choose the best.

Beer

You'll want to have three different types of beer on hand for your guests, and a good recomendation is three cases of light, two cases of domestic, and one case of imports. At Seven Springs Winery, we do have some beer on tap for those with alternative tastes, so don't forget to ask our wedding coordinator at the Lake of the Ozarks if you are interested in beer at your wedding.

Other Liquor

While many of your guests may stick to the popular wine and beer, you'll want to have a few others on hand if you want to have a full bar. You can't go wrong with two liters of bourbon, two liters of sctoch, five liters of vodka, one liter of tequila, two liters of rum, and one liter of gin. Don't forget sweet vermouth, dry vermouth, and triple sec!

Mixers & Garnish

Finally, you'll want a few things to mix with the alcohol. A good total to go by is thirty-six cans of Coke, twenty-four Diet Coke, twelve cans of sprite, twelve cans of tonic, twelve cans of ginger ale, and twelve cans of club soda. You'll also want to make sure you have plenty of lemons, limes, oranges, olives, and cherries. You can also consider other popular choices like cranberry juice, grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, lime juice, grenadine, sour mix, and bloody mary mixes.

The Best Wedding Venue at the Lake of the Ozarks

Finally, don't forget to take into account the guests that you'll be having, the taste, the season, and even the demographic all play a role in the choices you make when choosing the bar. Our wedding venue is the ideal place to have a classy event, but still be fun - and don't forget affordable. Visit our website today to get your FREE wedding packet to learn more about our venue. We look forward to serving and celebrating you for this big event.

Come for the wine...Stay for the atmosphere...Remember the view!

Wedding Photos You MUST Get

While the memory of your wedding will always remain with you, there is something special about capturing those images and keeping them forever through wedding photography. While some couples may hire a family friend to take their photos, for a majority of couples, the wedding photography is one of the biggest aspects of their budget. Because of this, we think it's extremely important to know exactly what you want to get ahead of time, and get able to give you photographer a good idea of what you want to be captured at your wedding.

Here at Seven Springs Winery, we love to host weddings at our wedding venue at the Lake of the Ozarks, and there's nothing more beautiful than photos taken with our vineyard in the background. As you plan your wedding, here are a few shots you'll want to keep in mind:


The Bride

There are going to be several shots that you would like to have of you in your dress, whether it's a full length, the back of your dress, your bouquet, and others. Here is a list of shots you'll most likely want to get with other people.

  • Bride with parents together and separately
  • Bride with grandparents
  • Bride with siblings
  • Bride with maid or matron of honor and each bridesmaid
  • Bride with other attendants
  • Bride with groomsmen

The Groom

From little details like the fun socks your groom is wearing, or the cufflinks that belonged to his grandfather - your photographer will want to know that you want photos of these details. You'll also want to capture these images as well:

  • Groom with parents together and separately
  • Groom with grandparents
  • Groom with siblings
  • Groom with best man
  • Groom with groomsmen
  • Groom with other attendants
  • Groom with bridesmaids

The Bride and Groom

Do you have special poses that you've seen on Pinterest that you would like to accomplish on your wedding day? Share these photos with your photographer. Better yet, create a Pinterest board of the photos you like and share it with them. This can give them a great idea of what you'd like to capture.

  • Bride & Groom together
  • Bride & Groom with each set of parents
  • Bride & Groom with entire wedding party
  • Close-up of the rings
  • Photos with marriage certificate

The Ceremony

Your photographer will know exactly what shots to capture during the ceremony, and you can trust them to choose the exact moment. If you will have something specific happening during the ceremony, though, you'll want to give them a heads up. Like, if you'll be doing a special song on the left side of the sanctuary after the pastor speaks, let them know so they can have the best angle and be there at the right time. Will you be lighting a unity candle towards the back of the stage? Maybe you should tell your photographer how to get the best shot or be willing to stage it afterward.

The Reception

From photos of your and your groom arriving at the reception to shots of the first dance and cake cutting - there are many photos you'll want to have from this party! Give your photographer a schedule of events so they know what to expect through the evening. Do you have special guests that you want photos with? Like maybe your best friend from school, your aunt, and uncle that you are close with, and your neighbor's child that you babysat. Your photographer won't know about these details, but if you tell them to look for these moments and capture them, they can help you keep track.

Our prices are affordable, and our venue is breathtaking and we look forward to working with you to create your special day.
