Choosing a Wine for Your Wedding

Choosing a wine for your wedding can be an unnerving experience, but it doesn’t have to be. Eric Asimov, who writes the The Pour for The New York Times recently wrote a column reminding everyone of some basic advice: set aside worries about price or matching the wine to the food. The most important thing is to match the wine to the occasion. And since it’s your wedding, that means choosing a wine that matches you.  At a recent wedding here at Pratt, the couple chose a wonderful Brunello. It was a 2012, which was a great year. And we made sure to uncork it well in advance so it opened up beautifully. All perfect — but even more important: the bride’s family was from Tuscany. Serving a Brunello was a reminder of many joyous family occasions and now one more — her wedding.
