Wine - More Than Just A Wedding Beverage?

If ever there were two terms that go together, they are wine and wedding. If you really love wine, however, you can make it the centerpiece of your happy day.

Wine - More Than Just A Wedding Beverage?

One of the biggest parties you'll ever plan is your wedding. From choosing the venue, to the officiant, to the food - there are many different decisions to be made. One of the biggest choices you'll have to make in regards to your wedding is the presentation. The presentation can be based on the location of your wedding, the season your wedding takes place in (such as Christmas) or your interests. If you love wine, make it the centerpiece of the experience.

The first thing you'll have to decide on for your wine wedding is how far you want to extend the presentation. A wedding can be simple, just incorporating some different wines, wine accessories (such as glasses and corkscrews) and wine bottle shaped decorations. You can also add some grape-shaped decorations and other grape oriented decorations. If you want to really "pour" it on, you can go much farther.

Other types of wine weddings can include incorporating wine colors into your theme. Burgundy, wine and green colors all work well with wine themes. You can also use different types of wine items to spruce up your ceremony and reception locations. Oak wine barrels can make a great centerpiece when filled with flowers, and wine bottles make excellent candle holders. Real (or artificial) grapevines can be used as garlands to decorate the walls and ceilings of your reception location. Using wine labels as place cards (either affixed to bottles or just on cards) can be another way to bring wine into your wedding.

To top the event off, you can also invite [pay] specialist from local wineries to the wedding. They will bring in various new vintages and provide tastings for you and your guests. Along with this, they will typically provide detailed discussions on the process used by the winery to produce the various vintages as well as providing instruction on the unique aspects of the particular vintages on hand. Take this step and you guest will talk about your wedding for more than a few days.

Picking the right presentation for your wedding can make sure that you will always look back on your special day with fondness have great memories. A wine wedding can be a great way to show your love of the grape.

Six White Wines for Mild Weather

Tue, 22 Apr 2008 20:37:16 PDT
I don’t know what the weather is like in your neck o’ the woods, but here in what’s called the Mid-South, the corner where Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas touch — well Tennessee and Arkansas don’t touch because this big-ass river flows between — the weather is absolutely gorgeous (after inordinate rain), and I wish it would never get hotter, as vain a wish as humankind ever made, because by July here it will be insufferable. Anyway, since the clime is mild and pleasant and enjoyable, I o

Just the other day, I was at a wine tasting that featured the new vintages from Turnbull Wine Cellars, and Mike Holt from Stacole Fine Wines was expounding on the fine Rutherford-grown grapes Turnbull uses when my friend Percy turned to me and said, "Rutherford — that's cabernet country."

Refreshment by the case: 12 warm-weather wines (The Charlotte Observer)

Wed, 23 Apr 2008 00:14:11 PDT
Warm weather has me longing for lazy days in the sun, quiet nights on the patio, and of course, good wine. I decided to assemble a mixed case of wine, scavenger-hunt style. My goal was to find 12 delicious spring and summer season-friendly wines. The catch? I wanted wines that were really affordable, the kind you can open guilt-free on a Monday night, so I set a price limit of around $10. Here ...
