How to Save on Your Wedding Wines

How to Save on Your Wedding Wines

“How do I save on wines for my wedding?”

I get this question all the time from friends, acquaintances, and even random other guests at cocktail parties (when they learn I’m a writer and a somm). So I did something about it: I wrote a lengthy article for The New York Times wedding section. It has all my tips, plus more from serious pros like Carlton McCoy (Master Sommelier!) and Monica Zanotti from the fabulous Meadowood Napa Valley.

The biggest take away is to be true to who you are when you’re picking your wines. Also, there’s no reason you’ll have to serve “cheap” wines. There are tons of ways to save on great producers and sleeper value bottles! Read all my tips here.
