What’s a great wedding toast without a stellar glass of white to clink in celebration? Pretty much nada. But actually deciding on that wedding-worthy wine that will also please the majority of your guests feels like such a big to-do. So we checked in with some experts to help with the decision-making.
Miri Kolici, general manager and beverage director at Upstairs at The Kimberly Hotel, finds that even with cooler weather, wedding guests enjoy white wine all year round. His rule of thumb: “Always offer at least two different whites, such as a Sauvignon Blanc and a Chardonnay. This should satisfy most of the guests’ preferences because the wines have such different styles.” Hillary Zio, sommelier and author of The Unfiltered Guide to Working in Wine, steers away from sweet or overly oaked wines, “because many people don't prefer them and they are harder to pair with food.”
Get inspired by some of the white wines our experts chose below—which prove to be ideal (and affordable) for any celebration.
