Wine & Wedding Cake - An Amazing Pair!

Wine and wedding cake go hand in hand when you'll be celebrating your big day! Of course, pairing your wine and wedding cake can feel like a science. While many bakeries encourage you to taste your cake ahead of time, we think you should have a cake and wine pairing session, too ... just to make sure they work well together! Here are a few ideas to get you started on pairing your Missouri wine and your wedding cake.


Chocolate Cake

The rich and decadent flavors of chocolate cake make it a popular choice for weddings. No matter what type of chocolate you are choosing, you can count on our Norton to complete the perfect pair. The opaque, deep plum color will look magnificent with the rich chocolate, and the tobacco and oak flavors, along with the full bodied, spicy smooth persistent finish will be magnificent.

Fruit Flavors

From strawberry to lemon, fresh and fruity flavors can be a dream for your summer wedding. You'll want to pair a wine that is just as fresh and fun as your cake, so we recommend trying the Moscato Sparkling. The brilliant, light straw color will mimic the freshness of your light cake. The tropical fruit and flower flavors with the light bodied, fruit forward sparkling finish will pair nicely with your fresh, fruit flavored cake. Not to mention, the sparkling aspect of this wine will be a fun way to celebrate your wedding!

White Cake

This classic cake is a natural choice for many brides. It complements the clean and white style you've tried to achieve through your wedding. It's uncomplicated, delicious, and classic. You want to pair a wine that has the same characteristics but also brings out the flavor as well. We recommend pairing our Chardonel white wine with your white cake. The light to medium straw color will complement your cake, and the medium body and fruity, toasted oak flavor will enhance the vanilla flavors in your cake and frosting.

Red Velvet Cake

When you're looking for the perfect pair for your rich, velvety, red velvet cake - you need a velvety wine! Try pairing our Spring Red with your red velvet wedding cake. The semi-sweet finish will pair wonderfully with the rich texture of the red velvet cake, and the hint of black cherry with the rich chocolate flavors will be divine. This wine ends with a velvet finish - perfect for this type of cake.

Spicy Cake

From spice cake to carrot cake, there are many delicious cakes out there that have a bit of spice. If you're looking for a wine that will pair wonderfully with these types of cake - we would like to suggest our Vignoles variety. The mild straw color pairs well with these cakes because while they can be rich, they aren't quite ready for a red wine. This flavorful bodied wine with peach, melon, and citrus helps to bring out the spicy flavor of either cake, and the fruity tones highlight the carrot in carrot cake.
