    The sugar levels I recommend should be able to hit your sweet spot (pun intended). When you visit the LCBO, each price label on the shelf will state the sugar level as "X g/L." For a red, get two in the recommended 7-10g/L range and one in a drier level like 2-4g/L so you can get an idea of the differences and what you think will work. Same goes with the whites.

    If you're looking for a wine for your toast, a bubbly Moscato will be a hit.

    You can also have some snacks with your wine tasting. Make some steak bites or some salmon sushi.

    Okay! Thank you - I really don't know much about wines at all. I'll be serving beef tenderloin, which I assume pairs well with a red wine; salmon, which again I assume pairs with white wine; and then my vegan option is mushroom stuffed peppers..

    I don't know if we'll be able to do a wine tasting in Niagara, but I'm definitely down for us to set up our own tasting at home with our parents and wedding party lol

    Beef tenderloin, herb-crusted salmon, and wild mushroom stuffed peppers.

    What are you serving for food? Typically you want to pair wines with compatible flavour palettes and you’d get better recs if we knew what you were serving Smiley smile

    This really depends on your crowd and what you're serving for dinner. I personally find in my circle of friends and acquaintances that very few people actually enjoy dry wines so my choices would be something on the semi-sweet side but your crowd could be different. You can use the LCBO or Wine Rack websites to narrow down a some selections based on pricing and region.

    I would personally aim for red wines with around 7-10g/L of sugar (like a merlot) and white wines with 15-20g/L (like a gewurztraminer). Try to avoid dry white wines because the acidity can be really off-putting for a number of people. If you want something resembling grape juice, Moscatos have 40+ g/L of sugar and will go down (a little too) easy.

    I recommend buying a bottle yourself to try before ordering a big batch or go to a winery in the Niagara area for a wine tasting when it's safe to do so.

    I've heard to budget for 1.5 glasses per person during a meal, and to have a white and a red available. Some tables might swap bottles, but you could also put a "do you drink red or white?" option with your food rsvps so you can plan a bit.


    We bought boxed wine for our little reception. I can't remember the brand but it was mid priced and my wine snob friend suggested it. You could also ask your local wine/booze store what is most popular in certain price points.
