There are many things to complete for your wedding checklist including the venue and the marquee hire on the Gold Coast but have you thought about the wine you are going to serve on your wedding reception feast? If not yet, this article will help you decide which ones to choose from the endless options.
For wedding receptions, majority of the couples are still going for the sparkling wine. Brides and grooms that have decided to rent a marquee and provide their own wine for the reception should not skimp on the champagne. According to Lydia Harrison, a tastings manager at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, the best alternative for champagne is the English sparkling wines. The same type of grape is used for making pinot meunier, chardonnay and pinot noir while applying the same traditional production process. The taste will be almost the same and is perfect to pair with the canapés or food served for nibbling.
Couples on a budget can also go for the Prosecco DOCG which is the best version of the famous fizz. Despite the fact that it is manufactured in Spain, the same grape type is often used and prepared the same method as the champagne. The only difference is the lower price range.
For those planning to hold a wedding breakfast, chilled rose is the perfect choice. It complements a wedding with coral motif which is the wedding colour for summer weddings. There are different flavours available for the roses and most of them are from summer berries. One of the best brands of roses is the Rhone in France which is dry and is more flavourful.
If the couple is partial to white wine, Picpoul de Pinetis recommended because it is light and made from citrus. It is prepared from the south of France which is great to drink along with fish dishes or aperitif. Red lovers, on the other hand, should go for the Valpolicella or the Beaujolais which are both fruity. There are also less known brands used by previous clients who book a marquee hire on the Gold Coast such as the pinotage from South Africa or an Argentinanmalbec which is fuller in flavour.
