Among the many ways you can find to entertain your guests on your wedding day, wine tasting might be a creative way to conclude your wedding lunch and a nice idea to have a break in between the hundreds of dishes of a tipical Italian wedding dinner!
Our French-Italian wedding was the right opportunity for our foreign guests to taste our Italian local wines! After we thought about it, we actually organized a kind of easy competition, and selected red and white wines from France and Italy, 2 of each, and the idea was for our guests to select the best wine of each category. Pierre, our friend from France who participated to wine tasting in a number of occasions, was the official sommelier and he was consequently responsible for the wine tasting choreography set up!
> White wines: we chose an Italian Chardonnay from Friuli and a French Petit Chablis Bourgogne from Albert Pic.
> Red wines: we chose an Italian Pinot Nero Alto Adige DOC from Montigl and a French Pinot Noir Bourgogne from Faveley.
French Chablis and Italian Pinot Nero got a lot of success! Our guests fine taste got it right!
And a special thanks to Pierre and Laetitia for the time they spent explaining into the right level of details each wine characteristics!
