Ordering the Wine
Dinners with a large group can be difficult to pair with a single bottle of wine. Before ordering, make sure you are aware of the dishes everyone has decided on. If the dishes range widely, consider a wine that is flexible enough to accommodate them all. These wines include reds such as the Beaujolais, Merlot, and Zinfandel. White wines such as oaky Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or sparkling also tend to do well with many types of dishes. If the meal consists of several courses, it is best to move from white to red wines in the order that they are best paired with the dishes. This way, more than one bottle of wine can be enjoyed trough out the meal. An even better option to ordering more than one bottle of wine is ordering wine by the glass. This relieves major worries about satisfying every individual’s wine needs.
