This episode is answering specifically a question asked by one of my listeners: What are good wines to buy for a wedding?

The wine suggestions I mention are great for any event if you are trying to stick to a budget but certainly do not have to be for just group gathering but information you can apply to your next trip down to the wine shop.

I am focusing on Crémant (A traditional method style of sparkling wine) and also a white wine called Picpoul de Pinet.
