Wedding season is approaching, and planning for those special days is under way. A question every wedding organizer should decide at an early stage is “Who is taking care of the wine?”
I am sure for every simha, there have been endless food tastings, with discussions down to the finest details. It always surprises me the attention the preparation of the menu receives, whereas with regard to wine, people seem happy to go with whatever the caterer offers. However, the choice of wine can leave an impression and affect the enjoyment of your guests. So forgive me for giving a little focus to wedding wine here.
If it is your responsibility, you will need to consider a drink as an aperitif as guests arrive; the pre-ceremony beverage bar; and wine for the meal itself.
