I have a wedding coming up and I have some choices for one of these chardonnays:

Salmon Creek
Coastal Ridge
Stone Cellars(Beringer)
Sycamore Lane(Trinchero)
Forest Ville
Harlow Ridge

And for a Cab:

Alice White
CK Mondavi
Glen Ellen
La Terre

I know these are inexpensive wines, but this is for a large group of people and was wondering if anyone has experience with these wines? I need to pick one from each category. Thanks for your help.

Congratulations on the wedding! I lack personal experience with these wines. I checked cellar tracker website and some were not listed at all. Based on what I did find I might suggest the Coastal Ridge Chardonnay and Summerfield or Prosperity Cabernet Sauvignon.

I would suggest the Coastal Ridge and the Sycamore Lane...too bad you don't have the Stone Cellar offered in the Cab...that is an excellant wine.

Cab: CK Mondavi & La Terre

Ask if you can get the Stone Cellar Cabernet.
Good Luck & Congrats!

Like the previous posters, congrats on the wedding! I don't have a lot of experience with these wines. Are you picking them off a list that has been provided to you or can you pick something else?

For weddings, there are a couple of other wines that are sub $5 that might work as well. Crane Lake for Chardonnay and Pinot work, for the sub $10 category, look for Concannon which has a beautiful bottle and label that is wedding appropriate and has good wine on the inside.

You may also be interested in the wines offered at <A hREF="" target="_new"></A>, where you can add your photo and personal info to the wine label. It is really not expensive and a very nice touch for a wedding.

This is a sister-site to this site. Hope you will check it out. I dare say that you can probably also get a 20% discount as a member of this board.... See <A HREF="" target="_new">Special Forum Discount</A>.
