Perfect Niagara-on-the-Lake Wine Pairings for your Wedding Menu

You and your bride or groom are definitely the most important pair at the wedding, but your food and wine pairings deserve a little love too. All aspects of your wedding seem incredibly important to you and your new partner, but what your guests will likely remember most is what they eat and drink. Be sure you pick the right wines to pair with your food menu, so you can showcase your great taste (in each other and your palettes)!

Wine Pairings at your Niagara Wedding

Each couple is unique, and so is their menu. You can choose from an array of dining options to help shape your romantic celebration. You can choose to have an evening of appetizers or to serve guests a formal, multi-course meal. Our sommeliers will help you pair your approach to food with wines that accentuate the flavours of the dishes.

How to Perfectly Pair Wines

Hors D’oeuvres

If you choose to serve an array of hors d’oeuvres, we advise you stick to lighter wines to ensure your beverages don’t overpower the smaller samplings. From your cocktail hour to your midnight buffet, you can choose from our lengthy wine lists that will easily enable you to avoid oaky whites or tannic reds that may be a little too bold for a finger-food style event.

Formal Meal

Should you want to serve guests a formal dinner, you will want to look at what the main courses consist of to determine which reds or whites will work best. If you are sticking to only one of each, we recommend choosing “universal wines.” These are nimble varietals that boast subtler flavours that don’t mask or alter the palette, allowing your food to remain the centre of attention.
