Wines for Occasions
There’s no better way to celebrate a special occasion than with a great bottle of wine. Celebrations such as wedding dinners, graduations, birthdays, iconic events call for a special bottle of wine. California Wines by Rose has sourced some great wines to make your special occasion even more memorable. When selecting wines for special occasions it doesn’t have to be complicated and you don’t need to be a wine expert. To select fine wine for your guests to enjoy, first consider the occasion and the setting, make sure you are aware of the personal taste and preference of your guests. Also, ensure the wine pairs with the food that is being served, or can drink well on its own. You can do a little wine tasting and pairing prior to the event to know which wine goes well with the menu for the event. Here are four events with wines that we recommend for each occasion:
Weddings are a special events and it’s important that the event has special wines that guests can enjoy. Go for a sparkling wine such as a Champagne or this Ste Michelle Brut Sparkling wine that’s very tasty, high quality, made in the Champagne style but costs so much cheaper than a bottle of Champagne from France. Sparkling wines age fine, they’re elegant and worthy for celebrations such as weddings or other moments that call for a toast. When selecting a wine, look for a wine that has a light body and is fruity. You might also want to consider a wine that’s a bit sweet such as a Moscato sweet wine or a Sweet Riesling whilst celebrating a wedding. Remember to serve all white wine chilled, for the best taste.

When buying wine to celebrate birthdays, think about your friends taste and personality. If your friends enjoys a sweet taste, then the wine to go for is a dessert wine such as a sweet Moscato. Another choice is a Pinot Noir as its light and medium bodied red wine, fruit forward in character with strawberry, cherry, raspberry and blackberry tasting notes. It also compliments numerous dishes and would work well if you’re having a birthday party with guests.
Silver Mountain Pinot Noir
If you’re having a date night look for a wine that’s silky and smooth. You could also select a wine from a winery that you’ve visited before to delight during your date. Our top recommendation is Merlot as it’s a softer, medium dry red wine and fruitier with undertones of coco, vanilla and earth tones and is a wine that’s versatile and will be enjoyed by many people.
Red Diamond Merlot
For anniversaries try and find a wine that’s classy and distinctive, that appeals to the couple’s anniversary. The best kind of wine to gift would be a collectable wine or vintage wine. If you’re going for a vintage wine, Cabernet Sauvignon or Champagne will age well and it’s something the couple can enjoy even after 5 years. Try this Conn Creek Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s a rare wine, only 15,000 cases were produced worldwide, and it’ll age beautifully.
