Red or White: Choosing the Right Wine for Your Event


Planning an event can be stressful. Not only do people expect the venue to look its best, but they also anticipate great food. In addition to great food, you can make quite the statement with an exquisite wine. However, it can be hard to decide between a red or white wine for your event. Here are some differences between the 2 that might help you decide which one to serve.

Red Wine

Recent studies show that red wine is high in cancer-fighting properties. Red wine is also packed full of carotenoids, potassium, magnesium, and other beneficial nutrients. Aside from all of these benefits, it also pairs well with many different foods. Rich Tuscan pasta and spicy meat dishes go well with a robust red wine.

White Wine

White wine also has some health benefits. One study showed the correlation between drinking white wine and losing weight. By people consuming 10% of their energy needs from a white wine, they achieved some weight loss. One benefit of choosing white wine for an event is that it is less likely to stain clothing and linens. A sweet white wine goes well with chicken and seafood dishes.

As you can see, each wine has its own benefits. When planning a menu, it's most important to consider the type of food you are serving. At Coburn's Catering, we are happy to talk with you about your food choices and recommend the best wine to serve at your event!
