If you and your spouse-to-be are planning your wedding, then one of the many things on your list will be to choose the wines for the wedding breakfast. This is a tricky choice; get it wrong and you’ll end up regretting it! Your decision should be a perfect balance of the right wine for your budget, and it’s important to do a lot of tasting in the run up to making the decision in order that you can be sure that you have found the perfect wine for your wedding. Burgundy wines are very popular at weddings, and we’ll tell you a little more about why here.
 
More about Burgundy wines
Burgundy wines come from the Burgundy region of eastern France. The most common grape used in the making of Burgundy wine is pinot noir which makes a lovely dry red wine. Many people think that Burgundy wines are just red, however white wines from the chardonnay grape are also available. Burgundy wines are a great choice for a wedding because you can offer red and white; something to suit every one of your guests’ tastes. It is also possible to get rose and sparkling Burgundy wines too.
 
How To Choose Your Wine
We all know the difference between a good bottle of wine and a bad one, but sometimes when you are testing many different wines your pallet can become overwhelmed and confused. For this reason it is a good idea to seek some expert help. Do your research online too and see what the wine connoisseurs are recommending for this season’s weddings. 
 
Why Your Wedding Wine Choice is So Important
Getting the wine at your wedding right is crucial. If guests do not like it then unless you have a bar there will be very little else for them to drink with their meal other than water. A dry wedding is no fun at all and you will be left with crates of unopened wine to deal with. Taking your time and choosing a great wedding wine is really important as it will really help the guests enjoy their meal and get into the swing for the evening party.
