Let Homecraft take care of all your wine needs on this special day. Customized wine, customized labels, guaranteed quality.
How much wine?
A good rule of thumb is about 500ml per guest - some guests will consume no wine, and some will consume more, and it's always better to have some left over than not enough!
Each batch makes 23 litres (30x750ml bottles), enough for 46 guests using these numbers:
- 1-45 guests = 1 batch
- 46-90 guests = 2 batches
- 91-135 guests = 3 batches
- 136-180 guests = 4 batches, etc.
White wine goes best with white meat (chicken, pork, fish), and red wine better with red meat (beef, steak).
If your batch total is an odd number, you may wish to round up to equate white & red batches, or divide them such that the greater number of batches is based on the type of meat served at the dinner.
What kind of wine?
In white, Chamblaise (dry, blended wine), Riesling or Liebfraumilch (fruitier German style) and Unoaked Chardonnay are popular choices. Avoid sweet wines, but those that are a '1' on the sugar scale (smoother off-dry wines) should be suitable for everyone.
In red, Merlot is the most popular choice, as it is soft and easy going, which should appeal to almost everybody. Blended reds would be okay as well. Avoid heavy, tannic reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon, unless you have a lot of time to age the wine.
