Weddings in Wine Country

June 14, 2022

It’s wedding season, and we may be partial, but we love weddings in wine country. Missouri’s wineries and vineyards make spectacular backdrops for the big day. And, Missouri’s wines provide the perfect toast to the new couple before everyone dances the night away. We’ve gathered some quick tips for couples wanting to make the wine shine at their event.

Tips for your sips

Missouri wines make a memorable beverage option for wedding guests. Sipping local also adds to the intimacy, nostalgia and story of each ceremony. Here are some quick tips for picking Missouri wines for your wedding.

  • Red, White and Brides – Offer at least one red and one white to your guests. Some guests will prefer one or the other, and sometimes their choices are even driven by the season. For example, guests often prefer to sip chilled white wines on steamy summer nights.
  • The Perfect Pair – While the happy couple is undoubtedly the perfect pair, your wine selection should complement your wedding menu. Check out these handy Missouri wine tasting guides for more perfect pairings.
  • Sparkle and Shine – A Missouri-made sparkling wine can be a great local touch to the wedding toast.
  • Rose´ All Day — Rose´ is a fun way to bring added options to the standard red and white wine choices. Modern rose´ can be dry, sweet or anything in between.
  • Just a Taste – Visit Missouri wineries well before your big day to taste various wines. Lean on the expertise of your favorite staff in Missouri tasting rooms to learn more about their offerings and what wines will likely be crowd hits.
